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..

47, rue du Faubourg Saint Denis, 75010 Paris

It was a nightmare before the smoking ban. Now we can finally breath decently inside.
Food is OK
As for la Perle, I can't find a reasonable explanation why it is always packed. Or maybe bobos are just a new variety of sheep

Sort of reminded me of La Perle, which I don't really like either...same kind of clientelle..

Erm, they are shut for 'renovation' until 20th June. For the moment, it looks like they are gutting the whole thing, but that would be a shame. Cross your fingers that they keep some of the original stuff...

Adrian said...

Yeah, actually they are closing down to get their sound proofing done, as the neighbours have been complaining....
