During a stay in Paris in May ’10, my wife, Rose, and I discovered a great little bar and restaurant called L’Insolent (164 avenue de Clichy; phone 01 42 29 46 04). It’s somewhat away from the city center and near the Clichy Métro station.

It’s run by a friendly young couple, Nathalae and Tromas, who are a lot of fun. They both cook and wait tables with flair.

Rose and I started dinner with two green salads, one topped with a filet of herring and the other with paté de canard. Then Rose had fillet of sole and I, a wonderful rabbit over egg noodles; we split a bottle of wine.

Rose finished with a home-made apple crumble and I enjoyed a intense chocolate mousse. Everything was just excellent. The bill came to €44.60 (near $60).

We returned there the second night with two friends from our tour. Again, everything was excellent.
