Le bouchon des carnivores


This small brasserie is one of many on the Rue de Marronniers. We noticed this small street on yelp when we were looking for a place to eat and walked up and down in the rain, looking at the menus for the many places. Be forewarned, having some knowledge of French is helpful here. However, with my limited French and their good-humor, things went well. We had one of the fixed menus. We both started out with the above-mentioned appetizer. The Lyonnaise Salad was delicious and was served with a dressed poached eggs, bacon and Dijon mustard. Yummy. For dinner, I can the Gratin d’andouillette au vin blanc et moutarde. This was very mild and it was cooked perfectly. The roast potatoes that came with would have been good but were unfortunately cold (the only small disappointment of the meal). My wife had the Gâteau de foies de volaille et sa quenelle with sauce financière and has spoken of nothing else since. She practically licked the plate. For dessert, chocolate fondant (so rich, delicious). For drinks I had a glass of french red wine. All in all, an excellent value and we had a wonderful time. The restaurant has a good vibe and is still romantic – accommodating families, couples and girls-night-out. The service is leisurely – be sure you are not in a rush. But this was perfect for us and there was always someone when we needed them. You should definitely go.
