80, rue du Faubourg-Poissonniere (10)
We ate at La Grille several years ago – pre-Diary. It was good, but eccentric, run by an elderly couple and decorated with her wedding attire. They have retired, the restaurant purchased by four younger friends. Mostly unchanged, but the few changes are for the better. Grilled meats and fish, some daily specials. A neighborhood place. If not memorable, surely enjoyable – enough to go back.
Grilled Cote de Boeuf for two with béarnaise. Scallops with mache as plat du jour entree. Profiterole for dessert. Eight or so choices in each category.
The only holdover is the single waiter, older than the owners. Good at what he does and having a good time at it.
A la carte. 120€ for two with wine and not the least expensive food choices.
