Eating Around: Le Petit Senon

Jade’s day off, we did a little shopping and lunch.   Le Petit Senon is a small restaurant on the Sens pedestrian shopping walk, across the street from La Cuisine de Lolie http://cookinginsens.wordpress.com/2011/08/27/eating-around-la-cuisine-de-lolie/.   We had eaten here about a year ago and remembered a warm reception and perfectly “correct” food.  That has not changed.  I love the owner, a petite, friendly and interested woman who seems to like what she’s doing.

Not very hungry, we opted for enormous salads that could get one through a 12 hour cotton picking shift in Alabama.  Jade had the salad with house made foie gras and magret de canard.   Exceptional!   I chose the Mediterranean salad with a trio of fish, including an opulent, smoked salmon.  Fabulous!   Still, there was dessert.  Oh, yes.

Jade had the chocolate trio with a buttery compote of peach, topped with whipped cream. We shared my Cafe Gourmand which, I think rivaled the excellent Cafe Gourmand at La Cuisine de Lolie (Sorry Lolie); tiramisu ice cream, peach compote, vanilla macaroon, cherry tart, citrus fruit in a sweet liqueur and, of course, coffee.

Le Petit Senon is a great restaurant in which to have a relaxed, leisurely lunch, inside or out.   The service is impeccable and friendly with an aim to please.  Thank you Petit Senon.  We had a wonderful day of shopping and a wonderful lunch.

Score:

Jade:  8.5 – The house made fois gras with onion compote

Rosemary:  8.0 – Salad Mediterranean and the Cafe Gourmand
