Roseval

Picture the innovative and passionate offspring if Rino married Chateaubriand. Greenwold and Tondo have created just this in a tiny dining room in 20e. Throughout the house you feel the love for the scene and kitchen product. Quiet foodies and a few friends of the house enjoy 4 creative courses for 35€, fromage at a supplement. Soft jazz, perfect if casual service with visits from the chefs when time allows. Some plates or parts of plates work better than others, but taken as a whole, our dinner was superb.

Pics and detail when I get home.

    I'm glad it impressed. One of my best meals (if not the best) over the summer. Cool vibe, great food, great prices ... a little paradise.

        As an aside, make sure you also visit Chatomat, just a couple of blocks away. It doesn't push the envelop as much as Rosval but both dinners we have had there have been outstanding. Your friend's hood is hot!

          Ahh, we have 5 nights in Paris! You know how hard that is!...I would need a year to try everything I want to try. So don't make it harder! ;)

          Chatomat has been on my list for some time as well. If you remember, the husband is a game fanatic and I'm trying to make sure he gets his fill while I have a break every now and then. We will have been in Burgundy for a week before Paris (Ma Cuisine and La Ferme de la Ruchotte are set in stone and I have a long list of other possibilities.) So maybe he will get his game on in Burgundy by Paris? Probably not...:)

          Vivant and Chez L'Ami Jean for lunch are on the list, as are Le Repaire de Cartouche and based on your rec Table d'Eugenie, for the game. I wanted a more modern place near my friend's hood (Menilmontant) to round things out. But I refuse to agonize, all will work out and we will be happy. Thanks for your reports, I am taking notes...

            "Table d'Eugenie"
            To avoid problems finding or searching, it's Eugene as in Eugene Sue.

              sorriest... a la vielleanglaise I'm calling it a vinotypo. :)
              And after Manguer's review looks like I should keep it on my list!

                "ooks like I should keep it on my list!"

                I would, it's my neighborhood treasure.
