Thanks for the Moustache recommendation, JTalbot
Had a wonderful luncheon today. Salad with Squid and shrimp nicely sauced, Meats (Beef Fillet and Lamb chops done to perfection. Pear Helen with taste of a honey ice cream was a nice taste. Good Bread. Pleasant attentive and friendly service. Easy access from Vavin metro. Certainly worth another visit. (http://www.moustache-restaurant.com)
We too enjoyed Moustache in September at JT's rec, but were a bit worried that it was very unpopulated at lunch. -- Jake
We ate here on a Saturday evening about a month ago and it was outstanding - we loved the ambience and the servers and the informality but most of all the food. Simple ingredients but with exquisitely blended flavours. I will not hesitate to go again next time we're back in Paris. We had a reservation, which was essential - the night we went there happened to be a private party in half the restaurant and we saw some people without being turned away. An outstanding hidden gem.
John T is now merrily active on the "Paris By Mouth" website and does not show signs of missing us. :-(
