5.6 Le Petit Pan, 18, rue Rosenwald in the 15th, 0142.50.04.04 (Bus = #95), closed Sundays, was featured in Le Fooding as a "Néobistrot, Tapas et pinchos, Terroir" and that, indeed, it is. And it is popular, and it is crowded, and it plays tennis loudly over the TV (at least today during Roland Garros - today's top reading was 78.5 dB), and it had either stools at a comptoir or a metal chairs at a common table, and it overflows into the street with convives my age sipping white wine and snacking charcuterie. Now this is at lunch; my guess it that at apero/tapas time things get even crazier (in a nice way mind you).
The food is not fancy-smancy (like yesterday at Es), it's straightforward good product, well-prepared and nicely presented. My companion, who's lived/visted here since age 7, had the terrine de campagne and I had the deconstructed avocado, shrimp and mayo - both better than ordinary.
hen he had the quite acceptable beef tartare and I, the Montbeliard sausage with quite fine green lentils.
It was the sort of day, uncertain whether it's winter or summer, you do want dessert, so he had the rice pudding with a drizzle of caramel and I had the crumble tart tht said it was paale-straberries but sure tasted of rhubarb to both of us.
With a bottle of quite acceptable Pinot/Gamay from the Côtes d'Auvergne (one problem - unless you have binoculars there's no way you can see what the bottles are behind the bar from which you have to choose), no bottled water and 2 coffees (3 E for two versus 5 E each yesterday), our bill was 69 E.
Go? Certainly not a destination restaurant but a harbor in the storm if you live anywhere nearby.
