6.0 L'Accolade, 208, rue de la Croix-Nivert in the 15th, 01.45.57.73.20, closed Saturday lunch, Sundays and Monday dinners (Metro: Convention and a schlep) is sited in the space where Jadis pumped out some interesting food; as my review in 2008 said, chef Guillaume Delage "had an astounding idea – cook today’s best products in yesterday’s style" – well, something happened to that great idea and we'll await his reappearance. For the present, though, we arrived and ordered up one red and one white Gascogne, knowing our guests' predilections and got ready to order.
Two of us ordered the raviolis (don't take that literally) of beets with fresh goat cheese; my one buddy had petit pois, girolles and a perfect egg; and I had what I thought was the winner - a shrimp tartare with various veggies but delicious avocado.
For mains, the swordfish with a carrot puree was a standout, the 33 hour poitrine de porc was pretty good too; but my minute of lamb was cooked more than that despite my request it be cut in half so it would be blue.
For desserts we had the sable Breton with lemon cream and strawberries which was good but head and shoulders above everything else today was the millefeuille with vanilla and caramel beurre sale, Wow, 5 stars. So good that Colette stole most of my caramel.
Our bill with two bottles and a glass of wine, no bottled water but 3 coffees, was 204.40 E for 4 or 102.20 E a couple.
Go back? Well my friends in the nabe for sure but me, due to the schlep, I dunno.
