31, rue Vital (16)
Highly rated, but highly disappointing.
Above the line are the reactions from a lunch two years ago. At dinner with two regulars from the upscale 16th, there was a noticeable difference. A warm greeting. A well-dressed, familiar, local crowd. Attention from the owner and a better experience, but still not worth the detour.
Fair to better than fair from off the menu recommendations from the host.
Accommodating, if not polished.
Medium – high.
