Loiseau Rive Gauche in the 7th used to be Tante Marguerite and Colette and I had warned our former downstairs' neighbor in Paris that the lunch "menu" of 3 courses was 39 E but as she often orders but one course, she should blast away at 58-78 E and we'd understand. Nope, she had sticker shock so all three of us went with the "menu" - (a good decision).
First we had (as with last time) 2 amuses: the first of smoked haddock in a Japanese-type wafer with a dollop of something like crème fraiche and the second tiny strips of marinated beets, they too served with a creamy white something. The first course which fell right into this groove, was/were warm ecrevisses on top of another beet preparation, these warm, little columns like Daniel Buren did at the Palais Royale, with a drizzled watercress sauce.
Our main courses were beautiful pieces of duck of Challans, each cooked Rose, with a wonderful puree of parsnips together with a few very small whole parsnips - delicious!
For dessert, we had fresh figs with an ice; followed by chocolate truffle balls with crushed walnuts and sublime madeleines cooked with an dollop of chocolate inside - and they were served warm.
Our bill, with a bottle and 3 glasses of wine (too long a story to write here), terrific house made bread, no bottled water but 3 coffees was 225 E or 150 E a couple.
Oh yah, why did I write "if...?" The prices are reasonable if you 1. eat at lunch, 2. have the "menu", and 3. order reasonably priced wines.
