Restaurant L’Aiguiere on Rue Montreuil in Paris is Charming & Will Delight!
By Renee Blodgett on November 15, 2011
A Paris-based friend recommended Restaurant L’Aiguiere on Rue Montreuil during my visit in December when I spontaneously organized a group of 15 or so technology industry visitors from other parts of Europe and the states. Finding a last minute place to accommodate a large group of people the week before Christmas in Paris isn’t that easy regardless of neighborhood.
Authentic L’Aiguiere may be, reasonably priced it is not however, as we later learned when each of us had to toss in roughly E140 a pop, well over $200. Our wine selections were modest and not everyone drank or had dessert and yet…..
We took over a private room at the top of the restaurant where they set up a long 25 seater table that overlooked the above view of the restaurant which housed about a dozen or so square tables with blue and white checkered tablecloths. Charming as it was and as exquisite as the wine was, I’m not sure the food was quite worth the money. Good but not a $220 or so meal.
Some of the dishes on the menu included lliance and foie gras terrine with gingerbread and quince chutney. Go here for more, including photos and for more on food/wine in Paris, visit the WBTW Paris/food/wine page.
