On our first night in Paris, we decided to try a restaurant that was recommended by my friend Sally. Le P'tit Troquet is tucked away in a small street between the Rue Cler and the Eiffel Tower. We arrived about 7 pm without reservations and the tiny place was almost full, but they said if we could be done eating by 9:30 they could fit us in. (Not a problem for us American eaters.)
For main courses we had the flank steak with a savory shallot sauce and the scallops. The scallops were especially tasty and the mashed potatoes that came with the steak were as soft as pillows. I saw some people next to us had the beef bourguignon which came in cute little pots and looked quite good.
For dessert, classic crème brûillée and an almond cake with apples. The almond cake was especially good blended with the toffee sauce and apples.
This charming bistro was a perfect place to begin our short visit to Paris!
