Blue and white tones, light wood tables, bay windows that open up onto the garden – the young Flocon brothers’ place is truly lovely! Alexis, the boss, and Josselin (in the kitchen) chose this discreet spot on Rue Mouffetard for serving their thrilling neo-bistro cuisine. The day we went for lunch, the chef (ex-Pantins) had planned a very peaceful menu: a very enjoyable artichoke carpaccio with cream of broccoli and hazelnuts; light Cévennes onion beignets with a divine homemade BBQ dipping sauce; quick-tempered fried whiting biting its own tail in front of the roasted zucchini; incredibly tender free-range leg of lamb from the Aveyron, cooked for four hours and served with toasted wheat; before a cream puff filled with vanilla cream that really tasted like whole milk. As for the à la carte selection, it’ll have your mouth watering with options like free-range veal sweetbreads and Erquy pears; skate from Brittany with chard cooked in lemony butter and cod roe; and a pear vacherin with Tahitian vanilla ice cream… // E.diB.
