Chez Jeannette/ "Trendy in Paris"
Funny how some places can, in a moments time, attain the sacred status of being labelled "cool". A number of establishments in Paris have been deemed "in" and "trendy", and the recent Fooding winner for deco , Chez Jeannette apparently belongs to these ranks. This afternoon I went for the first time, and although it is located in an appropriately soon to be bobo part of the tenth and has acquired the timeworn patina that sometimes characterizes these places (Anahi, Charbon, etc) it's not enough to convince me. The clientelle is very arty/studenty (ie no fucking idea how to dress) and the staff, while friendly, seem a little aloof/bored with serving.
Food is ok. Jambon de pays Beef tartar (hamburgered) with green beans, big chicken salad with balsamic vinegar sauce and feta cheese (enough for two).
Might warrant another visit to check out the night flora and fauna at 3h55 am..
