Semilla X 2

Ringo Gato | Nov 30, 2012 10:04 PM

The Catacombs were closed so we headed back to our hotel, taking Rue de Seine and lucking out by coming to Semilla as it opened for lunch. We had no reservations and the restaurant filled quickly with those who had planned to be there but they had a table available. We made selections from the fixed price lunch menu (€26) which featured two main selections, veal shank with potatoes (served in a skillet) or a quickly seared white fish. Both were outstanding. The three entrées that preceded the main dishes were light, innovative and delicious, particularly a squash soup. We intended to sample different restaurants on the four days we spent in the city but enjoyed our lunch so much that we made reservations for dinner the following night. Dinner had an à la carte menu rather than fixed price. Sesame grilled mushrooms, lamb stew… suffice to say we had no regrets returning. A varied wine list, friendly, welcoming staff and contemporary space compliment the excellent food.
