6.9 Le Cantine du Troquet Daguerre, 89 rue Daguerre in the 14th, (but no rez's), closed Saturday lunch and Sundays (Metro: Gaite but better is the 28 bus), is Christian Etchebest's latest.  Now disclosure: I love what he does, wherever he does it, he's just got the "right stuff."

So the carte, while it looks daunting, is really not.  I started with crispy/crunchy piggie ears on salad,  the only complaint of which is I could in no way finished them all - delicious comfort food (two cars outside had 2 inches of snow on them).  Then I had a navarin of lamb that was falling off the bone, with artichokes and "forgotten vegetables" And And And bowls of puree, frites and basquaise - the latter worth the price of admission, oh my!  I ended, in honor of Colette, with an "iceberg" flottante that was light and fluffy and super with a coffee sauce that sent you on your way to heaven.

My bill, with a half-bottle of Marcillac wine, no bottled water, great-great bread and a coffee, was 47 E.  dB level = 83.2

Go?  Oh my yes.  But go early because the place was turning people away by 13h00.
