recently i dined in the following new restaurants.i thoughtthe chowhound community will be interested in restaurants that are not in the guidebooks and frequented mostly by parisians.
L'Entredgeu.83 rue laugier(17e).01 40 54 97 24
very small and cozy.hosted by the charming mme tredgeu
wife of the chef, and former employee of alain ducasse. blackboard menu with reasonable prices. i had porc avec betterave and for a main dish gigot d'agneau with fava beans.dessert was rice pudding with caramel.the whole thing was just deliceous.after a discussion with mme tredgeu about the parisian dining scene and about dealing with an influx of non parisians,she suggested making a reservation with an early seatting.i should add that
i dined solo and was 30 min late but my seat was kept open
L'ami Jean.27 rue malar(7e) ,0147 05 86 89
a basque restaurant with a new chef.the interior is antique country.The food is authentic robust basque cuisine.wine list is good and reasonable.i had a bottle of madiran for 15 euros.it matched the food beautifully.
Au bon accueil.14 rue de monttessuy(7e) 01 47 05 46 11
this restaurant was redone recently and a new chef took over.the setting is modern with close seating,which seems to be the trend in paris nowadays.the food also follows the new pattern of very small portions ,a la robuchon(l'atelier).its 3 -4 bites of tasty bites for 25 euros.i should say that i prefferred the previous
restaurant.i will not be back
chamarre.13 blvd de la tour maubourg(7e)
this rest actually came on the scene in 2002.i dined a few months ago.i had the degustation menu at 70 euro. i found the dishes to be uneven.some were highly successfull ,others average. however it was an interesting experience ,the juxtaposition of french cooking with mauritian spices.Service was very professional,hence the star rating of the rest.
