9, bd de Port-Royal (13)
On the border between the 5th and the 13th, a nice walk. Good looking bistro, but since my last visit ten years ago, it has changed ownership and lost its soul. Everything looks right, but there is a veneer of the slick, the fast and the commercial which has overtaken what was a traditional a la carte experience.
The food good if not memorable. The menu relatively predictable, having shifted to a modified formula. That is, formula with every other item an extra, some quite expensive.
Three servers handle a large room, but do it professionally. The food comes too quickly.
Next door (and maybe serving from the same kitchen) is an annex, making the prices at the original seem high, although they are not.
