Le Petit Varenne has been open for a short time and it already has attracted a great following from the staff in the ministries that surround it.
I was in the mood for some sausage and these razor-thin cuts accompanied by tiny picked veggies were just the thing; meanwhile our guest had the raviolis with coques and razor clams. For mains, Colette had a delicious merlu with "venerable" black rice while our friend and I both had the "pore" of beef with red onion. For dessert we all shared the chocolate three ways - called simply Le Chocolat - on the menu - delicious.
With a bottle of wine, no bottled water and 3 espressos, our bill was 145 E or 92.66 E a couple.
