Le Coq de la Maison Blanche Restaurant Review: Le Coq de la Maison Blanche, just outside of Paris in Saint-Ouen, is an honest restaurant where debonair owner Alain François oversees his wine cellar filled with fabulous bottles from the domain of Jean-François Coche-Dury. Considered to be one of the most important producers, his wines are of such depth, richness and intensity that they are nearly impossible to find. Also on the wine list is the exceptional Corton Charlemagne 1996 as well as more accessible, younger wines like Meursault and a fine Aligoté. The famous persillé Bourgogne (a terrine of porc and parsley gelée), followed by a roast chicken from Bresse, marry well with other red Burgundies, like Volnay. Privileged patrons enjoy a sheltered, silent terrace and a menu at €31. À la carte, count on €50 plus wines.
