Excellent Contemporary French Cooking, B+ - DINER'S JOURNAL - Hungry for Paris: The Ultimate Guide to the City's 102 Best Restaurants

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.

Why hadn't I been back? Who knows? But my friend Paga last night said 'How about it? " "OK. " Then recalling how well the chef did flying things 7 years ago I was determined to have the pigeonneau with veggies, which Madame Elan also chose, superb; and Paga's souris of lamb was almost as good.

After we had settled into our seats, we were pleased to learn that the restaurant serves Bugey Cerdon, a slightly sweet sparkling wine, as an aperitif. The waiter presented a chalkboard displaying the selections for the entrée, plat principal, and dessert.

For the starter, I ordered Pâté de lapin aux fruits secs and received a large, thick slice of terrine of shredded rabbit pressed with almonds, pistachios, and raisins, served on a wooden cutting board.
