For reasons unrelated to Covid, this summer Mrs A and I didn't arrive in Paris until the first week of August by which time our favourite restaurants as well as ones we wanted to try were closed.
The first to reopen was Les Petits Parisiens so we went to try it. The location's familiar for 'old timers' who remember Yves Camdeborde's Régalade but the decor's been modernised to make it as light & airy as possible in such a small place. There's a limited set menu. Eating 3 courses off the card comes in at 39€ and it's very good indeed. (Apologies, in my excitement at being in a Paris restaurant again, I completely forgot to make of note of exactly what we had). I see from the bill we drank a 55€ Grameron Côtes du Rhônes from a wine list that reaches stratospheric levels. If you're happy to go to the south of the 14th arrondissement, I'd recommend it.
A couple of questions:
First; has anyone managed to get a table at much hyped Mosuke? (Another trip down memory lane for those of us who went to that address in the far off days of M. Lapin). We had our name on the waiting list for a table for lunch on 31 August, but no luck. Disinclined to try again.
Second; we need a place for lunch with friends from out of town next Tuesday. The weather forecast's good and it would be nice to eat outside. My first thought was the Maison d'Amérique Latine but since I last looked, it's become an outpost of Rech with a very fish-orientated menu. The few meat options are +40€ for main course alone which is a bit hard on the one enthusiastic carnivore. Other suggestions gratefully received.
