Cornichon in the 14th cannot be beat for game once the season is on and today they were in full flower. As opposed to some places, for example Caius, which lists all sorts of items on its outside that are unavailable inside, here most of what's advertised is there.
For firsts we sort of shared a portion of duck-filled raviolis with mushrooms and uncooked figs and fried mackerel on top of red cabbage and dandelions - very expressive of fall, and perfect with our wine.
As mains we had the supions with sausage and black rice and a wine-ink sauce; partridge with a most inventive and tasty "millefeuille" of cabbage and potato; and colvert duck legs and undercooked breast (exactly what I wanted & needed) with a cepes pastille. Wonderful all.
To top it off the ladies both had French toast with banana ice cream and peanuts and I had the Abbaye de Citeaux which I recall from Patricia Wells book was only available for a few weeks (it was OK not outstanding, though).
Our bill with their bottled water, 1.5 bottles of wine and 3 coffees, was 187 E or 124.66 E a couple.
