La poule au pot – Paris – France
Till the end of the night
Paul Racat has been loyal to the job for decades to keep the authenticity of this home intact.
Open only at night, it aligns on brass plates screwed on woodwork hundreds of names of celebrities come to eat there until dawn. The frame is in its juice, imperturbable to the work of the neighboring Halles. They do not finish dying, transformed, discovered and covered, but Paul does not move from his henhouse.
His menu is also irremovable. Eggs cocote foie gras or duck foie gras, Burgundy terrine or bone marrow plate, starters do not deceive. In the dish, “la poule au pot” is the must of the house.
But the suggestions of the day would sometimes be able to make you abandon the tradition. Classic desserts too.
Finally, the wine list offers very nice bottles, with the corresponding prices, mainly in Burgundy, even if the other regions are not neglected.
Like many restaurants that I appreciate, his manager has his character. So if you come here conquering the world, it won’t do it.
Check of 100 to 200 euros for 2 depending on the wine.
