Billing itself as a traditional restaurant, its modern interior decor might lead you to think modern bistro. But, have a seat at the table and be prepared to enjoy your large portions of delicately prepared fish, meats, seafood and still-warm, freshly-baked bread with every single, delicious bite. Chef Thierry Verola whips up his own rendition of traditional Auvergne (a French region steeped in history and culture) cuisine and offers approachable yet very elegant dishes. Shellfish served warm with a dusting of fresh, diced tomatoes and olive oil to start your meal. Daily specials written up on the chalkboard are always sure-bets or choose from the simple menu. In summer months expect roasted abricots served in a simple syrup with an accompaniment of Fontainebleu whipped cream. His wife Maria graciously runs the dining room and has that knack of anticipating your every desire. An anchor of the 7th Arrondissement dining.
- French Traditional: "Expect beautiful presentation, large portions and every single dish to be perfectly prepared and seasonally tailored. Chef Thierry Verola, native of Auvergne, worked with some of the French greats, including Senderens at Lucas Carton before opening his own restaurant in this chic Eiffel Tower neighborhood. It remains a favorite with local French and expats alike. And while the cuisine is rooted in French traditional from Auvergne, the chef boldly re-envisions what this means and serves up winning versions of traditional dishes, done with a light touch."
- Best for French Traditional Because: In a neighborhood with many good restaurant choices, this offers traditional French cuisine with a lighter touch. Expect simple, appealing atmosphere with extremely gracious service.
