Sauvage

On the south side of the river, Sauvage is a great spot where for less than €50/person you can have a meal in a casual setting that would cost twice that in a more formal setting. Great wine list too!

If you go to the bathroom in this place you have to walk through the kitchen and you’ll be left wondering how they can make this amazing food in what is possibly the smallest kitchen I’ve ever seen (smaller than an East Village apartment kitchen!!!)

The menu changes daily but I highly recommend the fois gras appetizer and the bonito appetizer. The place is famous for its sweet bread entre but the lamb is very good too!

One of the most generous portions of Fois Gras I’ve ever been served.

Bonito is basically a japanese tuna tartare. And this is as good as they come. Served in onions, coriander and in a sweet sauce made with some kind of black currant berries. Amazing!

Cochon (Pork) was very hearthy and well cooked.

Sweet bread, the place’s specialty, is cooked to perfection. Simple but better than anywhere else I’ve ever had sweet bread.

Their Faisselle cheese dessert is also very good. Strained raw milk cheese with citrus slices and sauce.

Menu changes daily.

The tiny tiny kitchen, unbelievable!
