Recommended by our hotel staff- we were looking to enjoy a traditional French meal while visiting Paris for business. We were able to reserve a table on short notice, but they were completely booked after 8pm on a Thursday night.
The atmosphere was lovely and cozy; it was quiet at first, as we were the first customers dining- 7pm is considered "late" to eat for us early-bird Americans. As 8pm came around, people started to pour in and the atmosphere became lively and bustling. There was lots of laughter and wine flowing.
After staring at the menu for 10 minutes, my partner and I went for the chefs choice/ "surprise us" 7 course taste sampler at 50€ per person. Each course was beautifully presented and a nice sized portion for being a sampler.
Our starters included: pork's trotter carpaccio, clams with herbs, and watercress soup
Each were equally mouth watering and satisfying. The watercress soup was especially my favorite.
Our main courses were: cod roasted with winkles and tender veal shank. Each was cooked to perfection and the attention was in the details.
Our desserts were: pineapple poached with coconut milk and strawberries with white chocolate genache. They were just sweet enough and not overly rich- which was a perfect ending to a scrumptious meal.
Needless to say, I'm glad I wore my stretchy pants because I was completely full and wonderfully satisfied when we were finished. The chef did an excellent job and it was a nice experience for my partner and I to be surprised with the food, because those were not particular items we would have chosen on our own, but each was delicious. Hats off to the chef and we will absolutely be back the next time we are in Paris!
