Le P’tit Musset
This charming little purple decorated café has been tempting us ever since we moved to the Batignolles quarter. Well I finally went. It’s everything you could want from a French café, great food, charming atmosphere without the cliché decorum and it’s full of locals.
132 rue Cardinet 75017 Paris
I had the citronella mushroom and shrimp starter. It was divine. I would have eaten it twice!
And the scallop risotto for my main dish. It was exquisitly flavored and the rice cooked to perfection. I would have prefered the scallops to be cooked slightly more.
Classic crème brulée for dessert…perfection!
The ideal neighborhood spot for a fantastically French meal.
Mmm…I love scallops. That scallop and risotto dish looked wonderful.
Hey Gary! Oh it was…. melt-in-your moth delicious.
I’m feeling hungry for perfectly seared scallops now
I love the way it looks – food and the actual place. It seems to be a sign of Paris – that the outside is taken well care of as well as your inside. Love how plants are a part of the look.
The « Cuisine familiale de tradition » on the front of the restaurant would have lured me in — and I’m glad to see my instincts would have been right! Thank you for sharing this mouth-watering experience and great tip.
