We had a wonderful evening at La Cordonnerie. We sat in the kitchen area and watched the chef calmly and expertly prepare delicious traditional dishes - uncomplicated but beautifully prepared. My joues de cochon were served with caramelized turnips and a potato cake - and my husband gave high marks to his perfectly done foie gras starter and lamb steak and frites. A family run business for 51 years (we had a chance to chat with the chef and his helpful, charming nephew, who is the server), this small bistro is warm and friendly with excellent service, all delivered with unruffled aplomb. The wine was lovely, and the cheese plate was very good, as was the banane flambee au rhum. Don't pass by this seemingly modest restaurant - we will definitely go back on a return trip to Paris.
