We have been to the original Paul Bert a few times and they just opened a smaller cafe down the street. The menu has four sections and you order from each of them, prixe fix. Another amazing meal.
I started with the white fish carpaccio set in a light broth and thinly sliced apples. The apples changed the entire composition of the dish.
The others had the octopus served with watercress, radishes and a light aioli.
The second course was white asparagus served with tiny peas and a light sauce and a few greens. It yelled spring, spring, spring.
The others had the roasted monkfish served with browned cauliflower, crispy spinach and a light curry sauce. Both amazing.
Our main courses, and all of the courses are just the right size, I had the goat. I figured why not. Tastes a bit like veal served with roasted mushrooms and a parsnip with a hint of lemon.
The others had the guinea hen served with roasted carrots, green asparagus, onions and a light sauce.
For dessert we split it all. Strawberries served with a biscuit that was a bit like a macaroon and a cheese tasting creme.
White chocolate served with roasted apples and rhubarb
The best was the lemony sugar cigar stuffed with a lemon creme and a scoop of lemon ice cream on the side.
A fabulous meal. We walked home past Notre Dame which is always breathtaking. The walk took about an hour and when i got back to the hotel I fell into a deep sleep.
