Les Cocottes
135 rue Saint-Dominique 75007, Paris

My dad and I went to Les Cocottes on a slow Saturday afternoon in August. Yes, this was a long long time ago. I found it on Paris in Four Months and it looked good. It was one of those days where I wasn't feeling overwhelmed with all the choices (there are many - my list is LONG, people). I knew that I wanted a caesar salad (because that's all I want, ever) and they had that on the menu so it was kind of a done deal. Sometimes you have to make a choice and stick with it, you know? 

It was a nice walk from Invalides and extremely close to the Eiffel Tower. I can never find a good reason to hang around the Eiffel Tower area. There's not much there. So it was pretty cool to see it again. It's just... there. All tall and touristy. 

Les Cocottes is part of the Maison Constant - right next door is Café Constant and the uber-fancy Le Violon d'Ingres. The restaurant itself was pretty small but it wasn't full of people. Then again, that is Paris in August if you're not a tourist and know where to hide. We sat at the bar which was not the best place to sit because the waiters were louder than us, doing all their work right in front of us. It's different when it's the cook and you get to see them prepare food. THAT is cool. We ordered everything to share. We started with the caesar salad which was yummy. Good tasting, though not seasoned enough. I thought the dressing was a bit on the heavy side but my dad thought it was perfect. Opinions. After that we shared a lobster ravioli bisque which was insanely good. I'm drooling over it right now... Last we shared pigs feet. I'm guessing the meat was in the potato skins. I liked it and thought it was fun to try something new, but my dad only thought it was okay. There was no room for dessert so we left and walked around Paris all afternoon. When passing Café Constant, my dad looked at the menu and said next time he definitely wants to try that one. Next time it is!
