6.9 Le Cafe Trama, 83, rue du Cherche-Midi in the 6th, 01.45.48.33.71, closed Sundays and Mondays (Metro: Vaneau) looks like just another one of these corner joints catering to Bon Marche-types who want a coffee and salad - but unh unh. The carte while heavy on firsts and bio-natural-etc. wines has something for everybody and the huge friendly team who sat for a group photo (Franck/Frank aka Franky, he's the big guy, Carré, was impressive), couldn't have been more accommodating.
My academic cousin, schlepping over from the 1st, ordered the heirloom tomatoes with feta and dressing - very varied & good, and I had the rillettes, equally satisfying.
Then he had the knife-chopped tartare of beef from Desnoyer supposedly with Thai flavoring that he had to add mustard to, to make it come alive and I had the Morteau sausage with potatoes which appropriately required the mustard.
Go? You should but given the carte, I suspect Colette will not. 81.1 dB The brains behind this, Marion Trama (Trama, get it?) deserves a great deal of credit.
