Monday-Tuesday in A Nous Paris, Jerome Berger gave 3/5 dots to the Japanese Cantine Bis in the 2nd and Philippe Toinard gave the same 3/5 dots to the Italian Sassolini in the 8th.
Tuesday, in Le Fooding, François Lemarié reviewed the Restaurant Le Suisse La Txalupa Le Madrid in St Jean de Luz.
On Wednesday, in Figaroscope, Emmanuel Rubin reviewed and gave two hearts each to two places: first, the aforementioned Bigarrade but with entirely different choices (as is their practice), and well as Les Rillettes, 33, rue Navarin in the 9th, 01.48.74.02.90, (open now only at night) closed Sundays, with comprehensive formulas at 12.50 and 15 E for lunch and 26, 31 and 36 E at dinner for items such as herring, quenelle de brochet and a vacherin with strawberries. Then he rated three places worthy of 1 heart: La Librairie, 2, rue Duban in the 16th, 01.45.20.50.23, closed Saturday lunch and Sunday dinner (brunch Sunday noon), running one 35-45 E for a foie gras terrine and mackerel and a cote de veau; La Favorite, 4, rue de Rivoli in the 1st, 01.42.78.56.48, open 7/7, with pricy items such as a 17 E club sandwich as well as Caesar salad and veal Milanese; and the Italian Enzo & Familia in the 1st.
In the Dossier this week, Hugo de Saint Phalle and Colette Monsat wrote about the where to eat in the 9th:
Bo Man Cafe
Carnet de route
Le Garde Temps
Plus: Les Coulisses Vintage, Casa Olympe, Greenpizz, Rose Bakery, Yoom, Supernature
This week’s l’Express continued its coverage of the Riviera/Cote d’Azur during the Cannes Film Festival, listing 12 good “addresses” plus reviewing the Hotel Belles Rives and the Mirazur. Francois-Regis Gaudry, however, also covered La Tute in the 9th, at 7 rue Rossini, 01.40.15.65.65, which he called “Top!” and where for 25-35 E one can have duck hearts, tempura of octopus, pork belly and cheese – all in Pyrenees-style.
Saturday, in his Croque-Notes, Francois Simon went to Jean Luc Tartarin in Le Havre.
Sunday in the JDD, Francois Lemarie covered Semilla, coordinates already given while Aurelie Chaigneau went to A La Marguerite (ditto) 7/10 and returned to Chez Grannie (6/10) 27, rue Pierre-Leroux in the 7th, 01.47.34.94.14, closed Saturday noon and Sundays, with a 3-course menu costing 34 E for octopus, salmon and a strawberry millefeuille. This is the place some may recall, that in 2008, Francois Simon urged us to go to so chef Naoto Kitamura would not die from the lack of custom.
