5.0 L'Adalie, rue de l'abbe Gregoire in the 6th,, closed Sunday and Monday, (Metro: St Placide) is a charming, fully packed new bistro opposite the Chambre de Commerce's Ferrandi which trains all the real workers in French kitchens (and has dinners prepared and served by the students - go just as they are to graduate.)  The menu is a delicious looking one and the wine list reasonable.

The firsts today were a "perfect egg" (if I see this one more time I'm gonna scream)  on a bed of garlic and bresaola and marinated mackerel.  I had neither since I was into the 25 E supplement ris de veau.

One of my friends had the wild cod (couldn't prove it was wild by me); another had the shoulder of lamb; and I had the crusty sweetbreads; all over-cooked in my estimation and all with the same pepperini risotto (whatever that is.)

Then we sort of shared a rather pleasant warm tarte tatin and a straight out of the frigo chocolate mousse.

With a bottle of wine and one of Chateldon (my friends are from Manhattan) plus one coffee our bill of 124 E (thus 82. 66 E) was graciously picked up by my old friend in recompense for some long-forgotten (by me) friendly act.

Go?  As the RFC says "It's not urgent."
