5.3 Noun, 41, rue du Ruisseau in the 18th, closed Sundays and Mondays, 09.83.50.67.50 (Metro: Jules Joffrin) has been open for several months and I keep walking by it but first it had no gas hooked up for the kitchen, then it was only open for dinner, now its up and running full-time. The décor and music are very Spanish but the food is straightout French. I was struck that the welcome was not very warm and the daily "menu" while reasonable (15.50 for 2 courses, 19.50 E for 3) was not terribly exciting. (BTW, the reflection in the window of the evening carte of the handsome dude in white is the author/photographer).
I started with the mussels with smoked paprika which was rather tasty and filling enough; then a square piece of merlu with a risotto of what appeared to be quinoa not rice and capers; and fuinished up with the unpictured crumble of prunes, mirabelles and nuts, again OK but no dazzles.
The temperatures being in the high 90's, I opted for a 1/2 bottle of rose, which with so-s0 bread but an Illy coffee, resulted in a tarif of 70 E a couple. dB = 73.9
Go? A lukewarm - Maybe.
