Au pied de fouet – Paris – France Visit Review: 13,6

In the series “we are looking for a good restaurant in a tourist street”, let’s explore Saint-Benoit Street. We start today with Au pied de fouet, a small two-level establishment that is still in its juice.

We start with an excellent homemade terrine, made of large pieces of rabbit and veal head. The whole gives a soft texture. We smell quality parsley that proves a Burgundy ham inspiration. Only the jelly leaves something to be desired. It is a little bland compared to meat. Three drops of PatRelle flavor and a slight addition of stock can quickly remedy this.

We stay in the rustic with the duck sleeves, which are worth more for the taste than the presentation.

Why bother making Italian desserts in a typical French restaurant? I know, it’s easy to make a cream and switch it with coffee-soaked cookies. But I would remind you that, no matter what we say, no matter what we do, we can’t beat the Italians. So if you want to achieve this very average result, you might as well do without it. Or make progress.

Is that humor? In any case, I have none for such monstrous spelling mistakes displayed on the front door. I don’t take away any points because there’s only one, but frankly, I was hesitating…

On the other hand, 1 point in less because the toilets, if they are clean, are inaccessible to the disabled and unique.
