Chez Dumonet, Paris, 2/5/15

A great little spot, but come hungry cause they believe in large portions! Very cozy and friendly I had heard many good things about their Boeuf Bourguignon and the simple yet honest cooking style of the place. They understand about the portion size and so many of the plates can be ordered as a half portion. You’ll want to get the half so you can have room for dessert.

The wait staff were friendly and helpful and offered us a glass of wine while we waited for our table to be readied. Service proceeded quickly which suited us as we had a later reservation. Both firsts were good but I was partial to the foie gras. The toast they served with it was a bit on the done side for me, but their house bread was a worthy fill in. I should have had a quarter portion cause the beef was a huge amount but the sauce was as rich and tasty as you could want. Most importantly though, save room for dessert. The shuffle was excellent but the gigantic Millefeuille was out of this world. Somehow I managed to find the room to finish that!
