Morilles in Paris

ScottnZelda Apr 29, 2012 01:02 PM

What bistrot would you choose for a great meal featuring morilles? Morilles with chicken, morilles with pasta, morilles with anything?

(Am I correct to assume this is the season?)

    Yes, it is the season. Had some good ones at Le Grand Pan the other night. Chez l'Ami Jean will have some as well. But in general, quality fresh morels are a rarity, including at quality bistrots. Joséphine's stuffed ones are decent, not great. L'Auberge Bressane is quite good morel dishes (dried based, no questions). Sometimes Senderens has awesome ones. Also, had a very good dish of morels and poached egg at Tante Louise last week.

    But the thing is, top quality fresh morels can only be the day's specials, because there's no stable supply of them.

      Thank you very much for your reply, Souphie! I'll keep an eye on blackboards for the day's specials.

        Are you staying in an apartment?
        The New Ultimate Chicken Guy at the marché St Quentin, Marcel, now has very good boudin blanc aux morilles. Look for old stall sign "Chez Toutoune", not far from the cheese guy with a sign advertising "nasty cheeses".
