Somewhat less delightful was our experience at La Truffiere (4 rue Blainville - 75005 Paris 33146332982) Their food was superb, the wait staff exceptional, prices were of the "splurge" (very big splurge) level, the room with vaulted ceilings, beautiful. So what was the problem you ask? My one word answer (two if you count the article) the sommelier. He literally grilled me when I said we did not want to order wine. It was not sufficient to refuse, a reason was required.
Another main course we ordered was roast lamb. The artfully "painted" pureed eggplant was not quite a teaspoonful, but looked nice on the plate. The vegetable offering was a combination of carrots and zucchini layered between two sheets of pasta with Comte cheese (very nutty tasting) and mushrooms. This had to be the most tender and "gamey" lamb I have ever eaten, so I believe it was prime grade, just luscious. The restaurant is located between the Pantheon and the Place de la Contrescarpe, a very village like setting on a hill in the Left Bank.
