Le Brigadier: Cafe, The, Chocolat, Patisserie Maison
More about: BrigadierAround the 9th district where I’ve been spending the week in Paris, facing the Trinity church is Le Brigadier, a brasserie known by the local for serving generous lunch menus. I tried it with my friends on two consecutive days taking pictures of almost everything on the menu.

As we sat, we received a blackboard where the menu is written as well as another one hanging on the wall where the daily specials are listed; choose a starter and main dish or a main dish and dessert for 18€ only.  But what was supposed to be a quick lunch-break unfortunately wasn’t. One hour and 45 minutes, each time it took the food to come to our table…The place’s little details:

  • An old French brasserie style
  • Black broads here and there display the menus and specials of the day
  • A cup, napkin, fork and knife deposited on every table

The food is good for a quick business lunch:
  • Cold hot Chicken: Vegetables, slightly juicy, a hot cooked tomato
  • Salmon is a nice sophisticated tasty plate: Soaked in a sauce of lemon herbs and olive oil, the portion is generous and tasty. I liked the two slices of lemon and orange served on the side
  • Filet de Hareng: Sweet, nice but lacks some lemon
  • Salade Italianne: Buffala, ham, eggplant, capsicum, zucchini. Generous and tasty
  • Joue de Cochon: Too sweet, gratin dauphinois and sauce. One of three pieces was too dry and the other soft and tender. Served with a cooked tomato on the side. Not one of my favorite plates to say the least
  • Ham Plate from Italy: Rich with four kinds. Peppery and thick cuts
  • The desserts are tasty

The pluses:
  • The food is tasty
  • Plates are generous
  • Prices are reasonable
The minuses:
  • Very slow service
  • Lights were not lit up completely. Is it to economize on money?
