La Fresque, 100 rue Rambuteau tel 0142331756 1st arrondissement
Very sympathetic little restaurant. I like the old fashioned deco white faience, wall frescoes, and you sit at wooden tables elbow to elbow, etc…The ambience is really relaxed and the waiters are so typically convivial French, always a joke, a smile and a laugh. Don't imagine a minor workers place, it can be very cosmopolite and trendy here. At noon a quick menu for 12 Euros: an entrée, a main dish very carefully prepared, a quarter of wine and a coffee, all included. You will have the choice between 6 entrees, 5 main dishes, traditional but always with a touch of originality. Also a vegetarian dish on the menu, which is very rare.
No menu for dinner, but count 19 Euros.

Excellent chef that Marc Baudry. On this cute place d’Aligre, crawling with people for the famous market d’Aligre, this chef of great talent received us at noon with an adorable welcoming and service. The prices are ridiculous when you taste the quality. I started with a terrine d'aile de raie et Soissons en vinaigrette 'herbes, Annie had the petits choux garnis de roquefort, crème Banyuls. I continued with the farcis au gout provencal (delicious !) and Annie passed and waited for dessert. She could have chosen between papillote de rascasse, créme citronnée or estouffade de canard, petits navets glacés, crouton de tapenade. But her appetite is not that big for lunch.. She had créme brulée aux calissons and I took the copeaux très noirs de Tante Colette, glace verveine. My oh my, do I have an appetite! All this for 13.90 € plus coffee per person. .
