L'Ogre Restaurant Review

: The Eiffel tower appears through the bay windows of this bistro near the banks of the Seine. A counter and wall slats adorn the space, beside a smoking-room where one may taste a cigar sold on the premises. Served in jumbo portions, dishes are de facto capable of satisfying an ogre. Treat yourself with the pâté the size of a Rubik’s cube; the rib roast for two that weighs in at 55 ounces; and parts of the roasted sucking pig, thigh and tournedos covered by crusty rind. The wine cellar contains 150 references, notably a white Côte de Beaune by the glass, mineral and tasty.
