7.5 Quinsou, 33, rue de l'abbe Gregoire (yes, just down the street from Cezembre which I rated a 7.6 just recently) in the 6th, 01.42.22.66.09, closed Sundays and Mondays (Metro: St Placide) is another place started by a chef, Antonin Bonnet, who has left the Sergent Recruter and also been a victim of the Jeune Rue fiasco. The name is that of a small bird in Lozere that rarely sings and its one of the few places I've eaten at that prints the name of the heirloom flour producer providing the makings of their superb bread.
It's one of those places with a superbly priced "menu", here 3 courses for 35 E, along with a few other dishes which alone are about the same. We two writers on food, though, liked the sound of the "menu" and so let'er rip. We started with a soft egg on pork belly (ventrèche) and kale - terrific; then lieu jaune which by itself was very good but with the mussels, sweet butternut puree and white wine sauce was even better; and a dessert of incredibly light Tonka vanilla cream on a shell of chestnuts and chocolate that topped the meal off perfectly.
Our bill, with a bottle of wine, no bottled water but 2 coffees, was 115 E. dB's 84.1
Go? For sure.
