Le Court Bouillon; traditional cuisine

I know, I know, everyone finds classical cuisine boring, but if you get a hankering for it done properly in a pleasant setting at an affordable price, you could do much worse. This place gets almost no press, perhaps because of its hidden location on Rue du Theatre in the 15th. I found it by renting an apt. across the street about a year ago and have been back perhaps 5 times since. The chef is classically trained at places like Taillevent, Plaza Athenée, etc. and Mme runs the front of the house with friendly competence. The tiny ravioli de Royans are exceptional examples of creamy, cheesy goodness; the côte de veau is excellent and can be ordered for 1 or 2 people. Mme L. loves the grilled gambas served over a risotto with a sauce de crustacé. Desserts are usually seasonl fruit tartes, yesterday was fig, and classic millefeuilles.

Complaints? to me the wine list is a little shallow...only 2 red Burgundies.
