This place is intimate with outdoor seating available. A great wine list. The fixed price menus looked great but I ended up w the beef bearnaise, which was delicious. Fiery creme brûlée was awesome too!

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
