5.1 Huiterie, 2 rue Mademoiselle (I know the street well since my architect had his atelier there) in the 15th, 01.40.60.65.65 (Metro: Commerce but tons of buses too) closed Sunday nights and Mondays, was my destination today since I need an oyster fix. It's a lovely new place, with a large shucking zone, captain's bell and seaman's cap and an enormous staff (5 upstairs alone) plus a big sign in the window announcing not "Happy Hours" but "Happy Huitres" with 6 oysters and a glass of wine for 12 Euros. But I knew what I wanted, but first....
Not a "little Bobo" but some wonderful tiny shrimp and some Muscadet.
First I ordered some fish soup, which I always hope will equal that at the Brasserie Lorraine before it got taken over by the Frères Blanc, but no, it tasted Metro-pre-made, as did those silly perfectly round pseudo-croutons, the rouille and cheese. Bummer! But the Fines de Clares #3 were terrific as was the Vinegar Mignonette which had home/house diced shallots, no Metro here.
My bill, with no bottled water, quite nice bread and butter, a half-bottle of wine and a coffee, was 43 E.
Go? As I said, if in the nabe, definitely; if as a destination, you can do the same or better nearer home.
