SEPTIME--Excellent Contemporary French Cooking, B+ - DINER'S JOURNAL - Hungry for Paris: The Ultimate Guide to the City's 102 Best Restaurants Septime It's peony time in Paris, and we have a big vermillion bunch in the living room, and some ivory-colored ones in a smaller vase on the kitchen table. Everytime I trot out of my office to make a cup of tea or rustle up some lunch, these flowers swing a winsome punch of pleasure, too, and this is exactly what I experienced the other night over dinner at young chef Bertrand Grébaut's new restaurant Septime in the 11th arrondissement. While established chefs sometimes rest on their oars, fledgling ones are often like puppies in their eagerness to play and please. To be sure, Grébaut is a considerably experienced cook, having worked in the kitchen at Alain Passard's Arpege for two years, also at Joel Robuchon, and most recently at L'Agape, a pretentious and overpriced place in the 17th arrondissment that I never cottoned to, but his cooking still exhibits a delicious earnestness and a sincere desire to delight.
6.5 Le Café des Musees, 49, rue de Turenne in the 3rd, 01.42.72.96.17, open everyday, is a place that I reviewed after it opened/changed chefs/management/whatever in September 2005 and said that the "best single dish of this binge of new restos [that month] – [was] a filet of duckling (good tender product, cooked to perfection) with an onion compote, fabulous white beans and veggies the Chino brothers would have been proud of." Since then, people I respect kept mentioning it:- David Lebovitz in 2007- Heidi Ellison in 2008- Alexander Lobrano in 2009- Barbra Austin, Caroline Mignot and Francois Simon in 2010 and to top it off- the Figaroscope's "Ideal Bistro" article this week. Why hadn't I been back? Who knows? John Talbott's Paris: Le Cafe des Musees in the 3rd: The "Ideal" Bistrot? Pretty close.

6.5 Au Bon Coin, 21, rue de la Collegiale in the 5th, 01.43.31.55.57, (Metro: Gobelins), open 7/7 and August, has been under my radar screen for a long time. I don't know how long, it's not in my Gault-Millau of 1969 nor Patricia Wells 1984-1999, nor Authentic Bistros of Paris 2005 or even "my" Time Out Paris of 2007. No matter.
