35, rue de Verneuil (7)
This critically well regarded small seafood restaurant is literally down the block from our apartment, yet until lunch in December we had never been in, despite the enticement of a 36€ formula lunch, unusual for a seafood specialist.
For lunch, a pleasant, cozy 10 table space. All French business people, most ordering the formula. No buzz, but warm and relaxing, with nice food. Perfect for lunch.
For formula lunch, 3 entrée choices including fried squid or tempura langoustines. Main course cod or recasse, wine or water, and coffee.
Runner plus waiter. Do the job with good humor.
A la carte menu typical for seafood: very high, making 36€ a bargain.
As of Fall, 2017, Closed. Now Les Climats Wine Bar.
