Chez l ami Louis, butcher that provided the prime cote d bouef there just opened a restaurant of his/her own ?????
Anyone know the name ? I think it starts with a "D".
As well as anyone been to Louis recently and have any clue on how to garner entry if one is not a major high roller, famous celebrity, or globe trotting politician, or an expensive account reporter ??????????
Thanks a bunch.
As John said Hugo Desnoyers. Went last October and it was excellent, not enough of a char for me so prefer L'Ami Louis but damned good, and Hugo is a delight as well.
l have no problem getting into L'Ami Louis and God know l am not a high roller or the other categories.
New news about L'Ami Louis, at least to me,
a trusted source (someone who lives here) told me today that they let her split portions and provided doggie bags.
This might just cause me to return after a boycott of 20 years (because of the poor prix/qualite ratio); that galette, split 1, 2 or 4 ways would be worth it.

Of course they give doggy bags. As usual, all you have to do is ask for them. Nobody will eat you.
The waiter did snap at me "We're a restaurant, not a grocery store" when I asked but he did comply. Who cares, the service is obnoxious anyway, so you hardly notice it when you get that sort of reaction. I never experienced the split portions but my lunch companions were of the sort that made that useless.
I wouldn't go back to that horrid place where the snails are right out of a horror movie, service is downright sadistic and potatoes for the galette were stale last time I went there. The côte de bœuf is worth having; but there are other places in Paris for that.
Not sure they'd let you split portions. They might do that for a lady just because they're supposed to be cute Frenchies but I'm not sure they're the kind of guys who would do that for the sake of your patriarchal beard.
