Tuesday July 7th in Le Fooding, Yves Nespoulous wrote up the city’s latest “cafette” Capucine, located in the space of the prior Caffè dei Cioppi in the 11th and the 14th the Turkish fastfood place Zarma in the 9th. The rest of the summer was devoted to places outside Paris until August 25th (see below when he too went to A. Mere).
Wednesday the 8th of July, Heidi Ellison in Paris Update reviewed the Italian La Dispensa in the 10th very positively and the 15th successfully revisited the largely Basque Beaurepaire in the 5th. July 22nd she reviewed the Palais de l’Himalias and on July 29th beat all the other critics to A. Mere, 49, rue de l’Echiquier in the 10th, 01.48.00.08.28, closed weekends, running one about 32 E for items such as soft egg with morbier, beef cheeks and an anchovy/cassis dessert.
In the JDD, August 23rd, they wrote up two places outside Paris but the already mentioned Dersou in the 12th.
And as a sort of last gasp of summer, Stephane Durand-Souffland in Figaro 29-30 August wrote of Four Terraces to Prolong Summer: the previously mentioned Molitor, Saperlipopette, Le Café de la Jatte and La Sardine, 32, rue Sainte-Marthe in the 10th, 01.42.49.19.46, open 7/7, costing 15 and 18.50 E for small plates.
