7.5 Le Timbre, 3, rue Sainte-Beuve in te 6th (Metro: ND des Champs) closed Sundays and Mondays, has a new Francophone couple as chef-frontroom-owners and according to them, Chris Wright, has, after 13 years, gone on to other ventures. I recall coming here shortly after it opened and despite its postage-stamp size, Wright put out some mighty fine chow. Well, you won't be disappointed by the change.
While the 26 E "menu" is no-choice, the offerings were great:
- daurade (cooked not cru) with a cauiflower puree and black olives
- a Normand entrecote with kabotcha squash puree and
- an poached apple (that we all thought was a pear) with home-made panettone ice cream.
With 2 bottles of St Chinian, no bottled water and 6 coffees, our bill was 145 E for three, thus 96.66 E a couple.
Go? Charming couple, great food, lovely prices - I cannot think of a reason why not.
As a teaser, here are the menus for tonight and the Reveillon:
