6.5 Gallina, 37, quai de Valmy in the 10th, 01.48.03.47.22, closed Mondays and Tuesdays (Metro: Republique) is a place opened recently by Mikael Attar and Jérémy Attuil of The Sunken Chip and Joe Elliot from Cream, it was named one of the “Nine Cool New Spots to Visit in Paris during Men's Fashion Week” by Vogue for what that's worth. In thinking about the name Gallina, I went back to my first year Latin but then found out from www.spanishdict.com/answers/140111/pollo-vs-gallina-and-others that gallina is "a yellower, fattier, and older meat than pollo which is a younger, whiter meat....[B]ut in Mexico gallina only means the live animal and pollo a dead one =) or cooked one." So much for the etymology lesson. Anyway, it's on the Canal St Martin and thus full of Bobo's and hipsters and I raised the average age by many decades just by sitting down.
The menu, for a place based on rotisseried meats, was quite extensive. My dining partner, the daughter of one of my dearest friends, recently departed, met the demographics and ordered the rabbit tourte which was delicious as was the quarter of chicken I had; both coming with sides of salads, in her case beets, nuts, mache and goat cheese, in my case heirloom tomatoes with sweet vinegar (which made my dressing taste like the bottled stuff in the US, but much much better) and feta. For dessert we split the tart of the day, which in this case was an astounding tasting cheesecaky one with cream and figs on top.
With a bottle of Bordeaux, no bottled water, decent enough bread and two coffees (sent out from IMA next door which they own), our bill was 74.50E. There was not a mention of the Donald so even though the dB level was over 90.1 it was calm (for comparison that's a "Boing 737 or DC-9 aircraft at one nautical mile (6080 ft) before landing."

Go back? On a sunny day (like today), with Bobo's skating, running and kayaking (I made that up) on the Canal, for sure. A word of advice: the place fills up to overflowing so reserve (by email) and go early.
