Thanks to whomever recommended La Petite Chaise in Paris

We had a lovely last-night-in-Paris dinner tonight at La Petite Chaise which is at 36 rue de Grenelle. It's a very pretty place with real (i.e. not tourist) food. Walk along St Michel past Brasserie Lipp to rue Raspail and then up two streets to Grenelle and it's there. It seems to be quite a ritzy area with posh boutiques and hotels that look like they'd give us the toss.

I can't remember who recommended it but thanks to whomever it was!

I just looked at the menu and I'm salivating. Tell us what you ate!

I started with a poached egg on a bed of mashed carrots and covered in a delicious cream sauce and then I had the grilled sea bream marinated in basil which came with a vegetable mix (zucchini, carrots, leeks, green beans). SO started with a leek and ham (more like proscuitto) salad and then had the grilled cod which also came with veg. No dessert for either of us. He had red wine, which I don't drink, and I started with a kir.

It really was an excellent dinner.

That egg and carrot appetizer was wonderful and unique (to me, anyway)!

I agreee , I love it. Though your directions are a bit off you walk past Brasserie Lipp on Blvd St Germain, not StMichel

Thanks, yes -- our hotel was at Blvd St Michel and that name is stuck in my mind!

Was it you who recommended it on another thread, avalon?

I think it might have been, but can't be certain. I've recommended it a few times. I have a whole new list with 12 new places for our trip next week so hopefully will find a few really good ones. We have 3 days I haven't booked yet . 1 night Dh wants to go to an old favorite so that leaves me 2 more to fill from my list of 30 or so!

It does look good! Avalon - you sound like me. We'll be in Paris for 4 nights next month, and figuring out the meals was near the top of the list of things to do. I've finally gotten all dinners taken care of, and lunches will be a last-minute decision. DH keeps mentioning all his old favorites, and I keep telling him about the new restaurants I've come up with!

I remember reading this thread before our trip to Paris in May 2009.

avalon,
you mention Perraudin on that thread and that's one of our favourites. We went there twice last time we were in Paris and it was our first dinner this time. Our hotel was just a few minutes' walk away.
