83 Rue du Cherche Midi (5)
A great choice for lunch or a casual, lighter dinner.
On a sunny Saturday in June, full of French couples and families enjoying sophisticated, unusual dishes generally above the level expected. Deserving of its popularity and reputation. Physically attractive with some sidewalk seating, large windows, a bar and, behind, a dining area. Slightly cramped, but fine for lunch.
Fresh. Creative. Unusual. Untraditional. International.
Cold sliced octopus over fregola, whelks remoulade, sautéed salmon, slow-roasted shredded pork “barbeque” on a sesame roll. Cherry clafoutis. Wines by the bottle, carafe or glass.
Friendly. Helpful. Bilingual.
Very reasonable, especially in relation to freshness and quality of food. Lunch for two with carafe of wine, 117€.
