Paris Roast Chicken - Trying to overcome two failures

Dylan | Mar 19, 2007 10:17 AM

I love a great roast chicken - ideally with good frites and a pan sauce. The two that I have tried during my trip have been quite disastrous. At L'Ami Louis the 75 euro roast chicken tasted fine but was absurdly expensive and also overcooked. I was not fond of their frites which are really more of the very thin matchstick variety. And, Jacques Cagne's Rotisserie D'En Face was thoroughly medicore (although reasonably priced). I doubt Jacques himself has been in there for a long time, if indeed he is still alive.

So, where can I get great poulet frites? I will pay any price (cheap to expensive - I do not discriminate).
