La Trufflère (Paris)

A classmate of S is doing his internship at La Trufflère (4, rue Blainville; M: Place Monge) so he got us reservations at the restaurant for lunch (I love these chef connections). Eight of us went and we were able to get a table downstairs in the "cave." I think La Trufflère's three-course prix-fixed lunch (at 22 euros) is probably one of the best deals in Paris. You get to sample pretty high-quality food and great service at a fraction of the price of dinner (which probably will run you about 100 euros without wine). Instead, we paid 36 euros per person including wine and coffee.

My meal started off with some croquettes of pig's feet (pied de cochon) . I thought it was pretty unique - the texture of the pig's feet contrasted well with the batter of the croquette. The small bed of greens had a tangy dressing, which also helped to accentuate the croquette. For the main dish, I chose the breast of duck and while it was nicely cooked, the flavor was just okay. It was good duck breast but pretty standard (i.e. not inventive). For dessert, I chose a cheese plate instead since La Trufflère is known to have a very nice chesse cart. (I thought the cheese plate was good but it was all mild cheeses and I would have preferred a range from mild to strong.) I also tasted the desserts that my friends got - one was a chocolate ganache cake which was a bit too rich for me and the other was some sort of coconut pudding with fresh fruit, which I liked better because it was more refreshing given the warm weather.

Sadly though, again I cannot give La Trufflère any Q's. We were there for lunch for over two hours but I didn't see a single cute guy. I'm beginning to wonder if this is mission impossible... I've gone through many days without seeing any attractive men. I need to find some Q places! (Better yet, I need QQQ places!)
