Le Mignon in Paris?

Does anyone know of/had a meal at Le Mignon in Paris? I was at a discussion given by Ruth Reichl the other night and when she was signing her book I asked her for a recommendation.

She said, Le Mignon. She sent friends there and after their first visit they wanted to go back every night but couldn't get reservations. She said it wasn't an expensive restaurant.

I thought it would be easy enough to find the restaurant's information online, but there are at least 3 restaurants with some version of "Le Mignon" in their name.

I should have asked follow-up questions such as location and cuisine, but since she was signing books and people were waiting, I didn't want to take up too much time.

Thank you.

    1. I think there was a restaurant in the 9th by that name on Rue Lamartine, but again, I think it has become a nice little comfort food spot called Bistro Canaille.

          I happened to be walking by that area today and Le Mignon is still open, but I can't believe it is a place recommended by R. Reichl or any one else. A tiny bar with a smattering of uninteresting selections. It is between Herachian and Bistro Canaille, on Rue Lamartine.

            Is Le Mignon the small café attached to Heratchian, serving couscous, pot au feu type of meals?
