Le Grand Pan Restaurant Review

: Chef Benoît Gauthier helms this simply arranged bistro. Lunch starts with two large, unadorned appetizers: the creamy lima bean soup with balsamic vinegar, toast and chorizo; or young vegetables, soft-boiled egg and “ventrèche.” Following are the saddle of lamb with sautéed golden potatoes and chorizo juice, or the pork cheek braised with red wine. For dinner, after a house soup, you can choose among an array of meats that represent many of France’s agricultural regions. In addition to the courses offered on the set menu for two, other main dishes include a pork chop (from the Ibaïona artisans of the Basque country), juicy beef rib (from Blonde d’Aquitaine), veal chop (from Mauléon) and lobster (from Brittany, about 1.5 pounds). All are served with home fries or salad. Some wines from the southwest of France (Cahors, Madiran) are offered at moderate prices. Warm service. Lunch: appetizer €8, main course €14, dessert €7. For dinner, count on spending around €30 per person (not including the lobster).
