Roca in the 17th: I don't often call a meal astonishing but this was.

Laidback has emboldened me to strick my neck out and recommend a brand-new place by a not brand-new chef (Alexandre Giesbert) ex of the restaurant Richer, this 7.8 Roca, 31, rue, Guillaume Tell in the 17th, 01.47.64.86.04, closed weekends (Bus: PC 3) where my old Cantabridgian companion and I had an exceptional meal today for 100 E with a bottle of wine and coffee.
If I told you what we had (ceviche, burrata, scallops, rhubarb and apple and a gateau Nantaise) you'd said "ho hum, delusional again John."
But this guy has a way with fresh products, herbs and spices, ignorant me, has never heard used (fennel flowers, meadowsweet, cedrat), in interesting combinations.
People keep saying they want to go to places where no English is spoken nor loud Americans heard, I'd say you've got another 2 months and after that faggedaboudid.
