Le Gaigne, in the 4th, is a place we go back to time after time and have never found any fault (until today, but more about that later). We were warmly welcomed, as always, by Aurélie Gaignon and had a splendid veloute of radish-top greens, a clever terrine of all sorts of veal (liver, kidneys, etc.) and some Pic Saint Loup. Also let me apologize for the sh**ty pix, a result of low lighting, shaky hands and others "helping" me out.
For mains M. Paga had the pintade which was just fine but the ladies scallops and my St Pierre were over-salted and that really took the bloom off the rose unfortunately. I explained same to Madame and she graciously offered me a new main but I really didn't want/need one and so she supplied our later coffees without charge.
The bill, with two bottles of wine, no bottled water and the 4 coffees offered, was 194 E, or 97 E a couple.
Go? I'd say yes. After I got home I refreshed myself with the provenance of chef Mickaël Gaignon and saw that while he had passed through the Houses of Gagnaire and Anton he was never trained by Passard to lay on the salt so maybe this was a "one of" [sic].
