Parisian cheese restaurant

On the Rue Vignon, near the Madeleine, are several remarkable shops in addition to the well-known Fauchon. A Basque butcher has charcuterie to die for, the Maison du Miele over 40 types of honey. . .
On this blessed block is La Ferme Saint Hubert - a cheese store with restaurant attached. I ordered the Saucisse pistachee de Lyon avec Tome fraiche d'Auvergne: lusty luscious baked potato slices lathered in Tome cheese with garlic and parsley topped with pistachios and delectable slices of Lyon sausage. A friend had Gratin dauphinoise au lard fume (sorry about accents): the potato casserole with a cut of bacon containing skin and bone and cheese from the area near Lac Leman. Each entree was under $12. For an appetizer we shared an assortment of 7 cheeses (they also offer a tasting platter of 8 types of chevre). The staff couldn't have been friendlier and informative of the origins of their cheese. There is a DK book on French cheese which can revive memories of this place.
