Respond to Review of Le Grenier de Notre Dame
Review: We visited the 'Grenier de Notre Dame' new year's eve 2009-2010 on our recent honeymoon/trip to Paris. Being vegetarians it was a bit difficult finding anything more than dairy, but the restaurant was a nice surprise in a very central location. We were staying in the north end of the 5th arrondissement, which was within a 10 minute walk to either of their locations (we visited the location on Rue des Deux Ponts, Isle Saint-Louis, 1st Arr.). The staff was very friendly and very accommodating (my wife does not like tofu and the chef was quick to replace the portion with seitan), and the food was great. We're used to the hippy-esque vegetarian/vegan restaurants of Montreal, and this was a nice take on French cuisine that was appreciated (instead of what we were used to). I had a plate of goat cheese salad, cauliflower souflee, and honey-baked apples that was good, though my wife's plate of a seitan steak, saffron-barley, layered zucchini/eggplant, and pumpkin stew was great (and VERY filling). Let me just say that the waiter smiled when he saw the plate - practically licked clean. Pricing was good for the portion sizes (approximately 20 Euro each, main-course only), and though we didn't have entrees or desert the selection looked very good, and again decently priced (for Paris that is). Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting vegetarian in Paris, and reservations are recommended (as with most places in Paris anyhow). Enjoy!
