Resto 57 La Mezzanine, Paris
For a quick lunch after the train my newly Parisian old boy appointed La Mezzanine as a good place to meet. He was right.
I was early so I took a table on the mezzanine (well I thought I ought to) and supped a Stella. That going down well we had another one each when he turned up.
The menu is pleasingly brief with a set menu on the blackboard at a very reasonable price for two or three courses.
But we weren’t that hungry. I got rump steak and chips, he had the tartare. My steak was pleasingly dinky as I planned to have a bit of bait later in the evening. Chips were crunchy salty and the chimuchurri sauce was pretty good too. I demolished the lot swiftly.
The room is nice and airy with mostly French clientèle and in this area you could pay twice our €20 a head and eat far worse.
