Fodor's Review

Mickaël Gaignon worked with Pierre Gagnaire and Frédéric Anton before opening this pocket-size plum-and-ivory bistro in a quiet Marais street. His cooking shows the creativity of the first master chef and the attention to ingredients of the second: each dish highlights a single product, which is often organic. An example is l'oeuf bio, three soft-boiled organic eggs filled with creamed vegetables and served with toast fingers for dipping. Best value is the €45 tasting menu (€64 with matching wines), which brings you five inventive courses; there's also a weekday lunch menu for €18 (two courses) or €24 (three courses).

We dropped by on easter thursday and got one of their 7 tables. Ordering the 5 course tasting menu from the friendly wife of the cook, we were very well taken care of. The menu, which changes every month, was composed of alternating meat, langouste, fish and guinea hen, followed by a lovely pear dessert. Everything was well composed, and the wines were well chosen. Service was very good, and we enjoyed it all thoroughly. The price was very nice too.

We will return.
