Le Casse Noix Restaurant, Paris 15th

In Paris Revealed, Stephen Clark describes the 14th and 15th as a place with no interesting fishes to observe talking about Parisian species. Well, it might not be the best location for ‘people watching’ as Mr Clark says. However, if Parisian middle-class families aren’t the most colorful, they are pretty sophisticated in terms of food. Sauvés!  So it makes the place a really great spot to explore. Especially if you like bistros reef.

Situated north 15th, Le Casse Noix is a great deal. The inside feels like an authentic bistro and hids an impressive collection of nutcrackers (‘casse-noix‘). Hum… Interesting!

Chef Pierre-Olivier Lenormand who helms the place cut his teeth working at Le Crillon under Christian Constant and then La Regalade under Bruno Doucet. He now uses all his savoir-faire to regales us with traditional food updated to modern tastes.  The wine list is also good and you can order by the glass.

I and S. made two different choices so we had the opportunity to try the fish and the beef. Both were delicate and served generously.

I would give a special award for the beef flank with Grave’s wine that S. ordered.

Definitely a great place to get to eat!
