We opted for the carte blanche, a 5 course tasting menu at the discretion of the chef, with matching wines. Given our amazing dish of langoustine at the wine bar, I managed to have a minor faux pas by requesting to have a crab and langoustine dish from the a la carte menu added in, against the recommendation of chef/owner Greg Marchand. oops!
Seafood treated simply and cooked perfectly is my ideal meal out

Whilst Frenchie had popped up on many food blogs as a must try, I had originally ruled out visiting as we wouldn’t be able to make a booking. Important lesson learned – it costs nothing to be friendly and simply ask!
If there’s one eating recommendation I would give for Paris, it is to go check out this restaurant. Arrive prior to the bar opening at 7, and see if you get lucky with a walk in across the road at the restaurant.
