La Cantine de Quentin

This small cave a manger, probably the best in this recent new, bistronomic classification which started with the Verre Volé, continued through Les Papilles , might well (for the moment, anyway) end here. Two former Guy Savoy employees, lots of determination and , surtout, generosity, makes La Cantine de Quentin one of the most interesting opening of the last few months. Quentin, the visionary, and Johann, a former chef at Savoy's one star Chiberta , came together and created this space with their own bare hands in one month. Like the Verre Volé, the Cantine is a boutique selling bonbons, honey, jams , sauces, sausages and charcuteries, wine , juices , and dozens of other handpicked artisanal gourmandises. The cuisine is something else. A weekly menu is offered at 14 Euros (starter and main dish), and on the weekends, there is either an a la carte menu , starters from 6 to 8 Euros, main dishes from 12-14 Euros, and desserts around 6-8 Euros. Today we tried an assiette of charcuterie, and a millefeuille of beetroot with crab and balsamic vinegar. Main dish of crawfish risotto, and an amazing "tarte tatin" with maigret de canard, and thym, rosemary whipped cream, and, again , an amazing dessert of "bonbon" of dates, dipped in whipped cream. The 8 Euro pichet (50cl) of Cote de Rhone was excellent value.

Well, they're only open for lunch during the week, lunch and dinner weekends, and brunch sundays- and not half bad for 16E...
