Since we were going to the Louis Vuitton exhibit at the Musée Carnavalet yesterday, we chose to have lunch at "Café des Musées" from one of Ptipois' recent recommendations. What an enjoyable little place; crowded, friendly with good food at reasonable prices, and just around the corner from the Carnavalet at #49 Rue Turenne.
We had the potage du jour which was a comforting version of pumpkin soup, charcuterie, and mushrooms stuffed with escargots. My main was called echine de cochon, which was essentially a large chop served with the ever popular(to me) gratin dauphinois. We had a nice bottle of red Pic St. Loup, no dessert and the total bill for all this flavorable experience was €67.
