Review on Le Mesturet
Situated in the heart of Paris not far from the Louvre museum is a charming classic Parisian bistro called Le Mesturet where Alain Fontaine the owner, together with his head chef Pascal Brot have created a delightful place for lunch and dinner. The interior is warmly decorated in an old Paris style with treasures gleaned from the local flea markets and it is a popular destination for both locals and tourists.
Serving traditional French cuisine using the best of seasonal produce Le Mesturet offers two very good value set menus, although all dishes can be ordered separately. For starters try herb stuffed crab aumônière or farm raised rabbit in aspic with rosemary and yellow bell pepper purée. Mains could take in pork tenderloin in Banyuls wine sauce, olive and tomato confit and tagliatelle with crushed almonds or perhaps, one of chef's grandmother's dishes such as chunks of veal simmered and served in a cream sauce with rice pilaf and onions.
The restaurant's speciality when it comes to desserts is their delicious Homemade Paris Brest, a traditional puff pastry filled with praline cream that is big enough to share! There is an excellent wine list that covers many of the French regions.
