La Sardine Restaurant Review

: Jean-Claude Poilevey (Le Bouchon) continues to lure crowds into this tiny Parisian café (hence the name) with high ceilings and an airy feel. The menu is filled with hints of excitement and plenty of the familiar, properly executed classics. Dishes to look for include roasted chicken with potato purée or sautéed sweetbreads with macaroni and spinach. As for the straight and narrow dishes --- escargots in garlicky butter, bouillabaisse --- they don’t disappoint. So it's no wonder why the house-made pâté and steak frites are among the restaurant’s exemplary choices. The wine list is small but carefully selected, and the waitstaff is attentive and knowledgeable without being overbearing.
