8.0 Chez Jean aka Jean, 8, rue Saint-Lazare in the 9th, 01.48.78.62.73, (Metro: ND. de Lorette) closed weekends is that same old place you and I used to go to 10, 15 or how ever many years it was before its celebrated chef took off for the Ville D'Avray. Well, it's been taken over by a team that has much experience at Taillevent, etc., Delphine and Frédéric Jean Guidoni and Mickael Poyault have made this old place really sing again.
The amuse came and went and my dining partners' chorizo and cream came and went easily as well; but my quail was out of the solar system - it was the quail of one's dreams, who cares what came with it.
I don't mean to brag, Lord knows we've enough of that out of Washington, but my partners' haddock with rutabaga and our shared triple-dessert were great but my rabbit was once more beyond any I've had in eons; moist, red and crispy and the kale and broccoli were a perfect side.
Our bill, with a bottle of San Pellegrino, 2 coffees and a bottle of Burgundy amounted to 105.32E a couple.
Go Back? It's on Colette's list.
