Fodor's Expert Review Le Timbre

$$ St-Germain-des-Pres French

The meaning of Le Timbre ("postal stamp") really does describe this intimate space, where a spare but constantly changing seasonal menu concentrates on market fresh ingredients, offering meat and seafood dishes alongside plenty of hearty vegetables. You'll find filet de boeuf d'Aubrac (a pedigreed cow from southwest France) with potato terrine and Pardailhan turnips, scallops with cauliflower puree, or sweetbreads with pears and celery. Prices remain very reasonable for this quality: three-course lunches are €28, four-course dinners are €45, and five-course tasting dinners are €54.
