5.0 La Cocotte et La Marmite, 76, rue de Paris in Clichy (Metro: Mairie de Clichy), 01.45.19.04.08, closed weekends, is a place I read about in Parisien earlier this month and the front-room guy - Olivier Granger - who did his time at Ledoyen, sounded like a hoot. The menu is nicely priced although the cassoulet and Cotes de Boeuf put you in debt.
We started off with Madame the cooking school lady having the interesting sounding terrine; Monsieur the sculptor the soup of the day of leeks and chard; and I herring with warm potatoes. All were OK; standard fare, no fireworks.
Then she had the plate of winter veggies that she thought were terrific, he had a parmentier of boudin nour that was ahhhright and I had rostbif from Scotland that was also so so. At this point we called a halt to our endeavors and sallied home.
Our bill, with a filette and bottle of Languedoc Salvat 2010 and two coffees, was 101 or 67.33 E a couple.
Go? For them it was three Metro stops away; for me, almost an hour; for the pleasure of having Olivier's stentorian voice announce delicious sounding dishes that were just so so. I guess the answer then is "nah."
