Les Diables au Thym Restaurant Review

: This restaurant’s name is derived from a legend in which thyme is used to diminish the size of devils, but this venue doesn’t need for any sort of gimmick to attract the attention of diners. The quality of the food as well as the price paid for it suffices to place these “little devils” in the top ranks of good eating bargains in Paris. The chef was predestined to this profession, for his (real) name is Lassauce (The Sauce). This fate was happily complemented with three years of training at "Master Senderens" revered eatery. Eric Lassauce is now on his own in this smallish establishment located near the famous Folies Bergères, just in front of the Best Western Hotel on the right bank. The chef offers an appetizing prix-fixe menu with standout items like foie gras, a square of cod fish with braised endives, pan-fried grouper with a turnip compote, or a suprême (a reduced velouté) of Guinea fowl, followed by a successful crème brûlée, a chocolate mousse or a selection of cheese. This feast will only cost €24 at lunch and €30 at dinner. À la carte dishes are also reasonable, including the oven-roasted duckling filet in a sangría (wine and oranges) purée with a roasted fig. The grand finale is the wine: a selection of pleasant wines is presented for less than €20 a bottle. Wine is also sold by the glass. Service is cheerful and accommodating. The only disadvantage is the size of the dining room (be prepared to rub elbows with the other diners). Other than that, if you are in this part of Paris, les Grands Boulevards, it would be a mistake to overlook Monsieur Lassauce’s very charming bistro.
