Brasserie Bofinger

Anyone else really like this place? Well, after an exhausting day at the Picasso Museum and a walk thru the lower Marais, we wanted an easy place to have dinner. We passed Bofinger on the way back to our apartment & it looked like just the kind of place to spend an evening admiring the room and having an okay dinner. So, when we got home we reserved a table for 8:30pm & forgot about finding some more trendy place or hip cocktail bar for our Saturday night.

Well, I have to ask why its not on visitors’ lists or talked about on the board, as it was (at least for us) the kind of Brasserie that should get some love here. Everything was well above average, the service was friendly, efficient and interested, and the price point was on target. Ginny’s ½ dozen escargot were meaty and well seasoned & my frizee w/lardons, croutons & egg was fresh and well dressed. A nice start. Ginny’s main of Veal (Pave Veau) was an excellent cut of meat, generously portioned, in an equally excellent gravy with mushrooms and potatoes. My Veal Kidneys (Rognons Veau), flambee’d at the table for added entertainment value, was a large tender portion, prepared in a tasty gravy of its own (cognac?) with a different variety of potato. The wine was reasonably priced at around 40euros for a Crozes Hermatage that had a little age to it and opened nicely. A large bottle of Pellegrino & we spent around 120euros total for a meal greatly enjoyed. Not Bouillon cheap but perfectly acceptable for the setting and (I believe) higher quality. So... anyone else like this place?
