We had an excellent lunch today at La Table D'Eugene at 18 rue Eugene Sue on the recommendation of a very nice waiter at L'Epi Dupin, one of our favourite restaurants. The chef-owner is young, but with 5 years experience at Le Bristol. The restaurant is small and plainly decorated with about 30 seats, The entrance is wheelchair accessible and the toilet is on the same floor, but not wheelchair accessible.
There is a daily special for 17 Euro with one plat, a glass of wine and a coffee with small dessert. The prix fixe is 33 euro for 3 courses. There were 5 choices of appetizers and 6 choices of main courses and dessert. We had a delicious avocado charlotte with crab and a great vinaigrette of pink grapefruit to start and a dish of raviiolis stuffed with foie gras in an emulsion of lentils, also good. For main courses we had a grilled bar on a bed of fennel seasoned with lime and ginger and trimmed with tomato, red pepper, dill and coriander. This was a delicious and generous dish. The grilled pork loin chop with ravioles de comte in a cream sauce with crisp ham slices was good, but not as good as the bar. For dessert we chose the pear poached in honey and lemon thyme served on top of caramel cream with pear sorbet on top and also the apple tart on a sable breton with vanilla ice cream. Both were very, very good. There was a 2 euor supplement for the foie gras ravioli. This promises to be one of the young chefs to watch out for. I believe that Pudlowski has already selected him for an award next February. If you are in the neighborhood or at the St. Ouen puces or the March St. Pierre or Sacred Heart, it is definitely worth a visit.
