Les Enfants Gâtés in the 14th is a place that pleased me enormously a while ago and I resolved to go back with Colette. We invited another food-interested couple but got our wires crossed and so while we were in the 14th, they were in the 3rd. In any case they started us off with a thick mousse of avocado with tiny crunchy fish eggs or was it tapioca; hunnnnh?
Colette started off with a lovely mound of crab meat with herring eggs on a bed of crustacean jelly that needed a little fleur de sel de Camargue boost, but my sardines with sweet pepper, olives, tampenade and EVOO needed no enhancement and with the Buzet made for a great start.
For mains, Colette had the cod with squid slices, coco beans and aromatic oil and I repeated my sweetbreads with a risotto of diced potatoes - same overcooking of the sweetbreads but better offsetting by the potatoes this time around. At this point we moved onto some Chinon.
For dessert we shared a tiramisu with Mara des bois strawberries; just fine.
Our bill with the 1.5 bottles of wine, no bottled water, a 12 E supplement for the ris de veau and 2 coffees was 110 E.
Two very positive addenda: our check was delivered promptly and the A/C was turned back on after a number of us asked.
