Respond to Review of CLOSED: Au Grain de Folie
by gisaster25

Review: I ate here a number of times in 2002 and 2003, and again most recently in Dec 2006. They specialize in large platters of grains and legumes (e.g. quinoa and lentils), which are typically quite bland if healthy and assuredly vegetarian. On my last visit, my partner and I each ordered a platter but later learned that we could've ordered one platter to share, which would've been an ample lunch for two and saved us about 12 EUR if I recall correctly. It's a cozy spot and I always enjoyed watching my food being prepared in the tiny kitchen in the back. Service is molasses-slow but that's part of the charm of the place. Nevertheless I've resolved not to eat there again (unless I'm stranded in Montmartre and extremely famished; I can't be tempted by stale street sandwiches and Nutella crepes). A side note: It was this restaurant that first made me aware that vegetarianism in France is seen as a lifestyle, not just a dietary preference (as in North America and the UK). In 2002 Au Grain de Folie was chock full of pamphlets for reiki healing workshops and yoga retreats...
