5.0 Le Bistrot Augustin, 79, rue Daguerre in the 14th, 01.73.20.27.50, closed Sundays (Metro: Gaite) received 3/5 hearts from Emmanuel Rubin of Figaroscope, a rare rating, so dragged two of my food pals there today. It's a nice looking place, with a voiturier (so it has pretensions) and a 19 E plat du jour, 38 E menu-carte and a la carte quite a bit more. We perused the menu for some time, all deciding against any firsts, which was a wise decision, because the mains were plenty much for 1, 2 or even 4 persons.
Mme. No 1 had the linguine (it's a Corsican place) with poutargue and coques, quite pleasant, but requiring parmesan and pepper; Mme. No 2 had a veal chop(s) with potatoes, also quite pleasant; and I had the plat du jour - the poitrine of pork with nasty tasting sausages and terrific tasting lentils, albeit much to much.
There truly was so much food, none of us could muster up interest in dessert. Our bill, with no bottled water but a bottle and glass of wine and 3 coffees, was 109 E, thus 72.66 E a couple.
Go? As I said, it's a nice neighborhood bistro that all of us agreed we'd return to if living/working nearby, but 3 hearts?
