La Poule au Pot

La Poule au Pot is a looker. It's wonderful to walk in and witness the vintage wallpaper, the globe lighting, and the silver-plated serving chariot wheeling between Pepto-Bismol colored tables. It is at once a little elegant and also a touch cheesy. One can almost picture the 80s pop stars who used to slouch into these red banquettes, the mirrored pillars reflecting their manliner and sprayed hair. Today's Poule au Pot, having been recently rebooted by star chef Jean-François Piège, reflects something different - a desire for traditional cuisine bourgeouise and also the willingness (by some) to pay for it.

Gâteaux Thoumieux

A mint green & marble pastry palace from Jean-François Piège, whose rue Saint-Dominique mini empire includes Brasserie Thoumieux, Restaurant Jean-François Piège, and Hôtel Thoumieux. The salted butter and pear tart was particularly pleasing, but skip the disappointing and aggressively chewy macarons.
