4.5 Maison Plisson, 93 blvd Beaumarchais in the 3rd (no reservations) open 7/7 (Metro: Chemin Vert) was written up with great buzz at the beginning of summer. How can you not try a place where the food is supposed to come out of the heads of stars like Bruno Doucet and Benoit Bordier and the write up in A Nous Paris mentions Angelina Jolie and Eataly? It is really two spots, one a restaurant/bar/takeout and the other a grocery/wine/etc shop.
The carte was soups and salads really and the place reminded me of a loud (86.9 db) Merci, complete with 20 year old patrons and waitstaff. My friend who's lived and worked around here for forever was perfectly happy with here haddock tartine but I was less so with my lardons tart which was really a pricy/fancified kiche. The chocolate dessert, called a Viennois, though, made us sit up and pay attention.
With 3 glasses of Chinon (no bottles sold), and iced tea and 2 coffees, our bill was 59 E.
Go? Their grocery next door is worth a visit but I'd never be induced to shove into these jammed tables where you can't talk and chirpy waitresses cannot be hailed.
