Date night


Last Thursday DH and I had a date night. Since Little Miss was born we’ve only been on a handful of these, so when we do get the chance to have a night out, it’s always an event.

We were meant to be out for a friend’s 40th birthday drinks but we decided to start with dinner on our own beforehand and headed to Le Pantruche, a restaurant we had both tried before at lunchtime. Unfortunately they only had a table on the street available, but we decided the meal from chef Franck Baranger, an alumni of Christian Constant and Eric Fréchon, would be worth a little noise and decided to snap up the spot.


I ordered an entrée of foie gras poché with anguille. Delicate and delicious.


DH ordered as an entrée a tartare de veau with a crème of anchois.


My main course was a lieu jaune, cooked to perfection, with a mousseline de persil and ancre de seiche (above), while DH took a ris de veau with green asparagus (below).  IMG_0652


DH’s dessert was a cream with rhubarb and a financier (above), while I took a delicious fraises charlotte with sorbet à la fraise (below). It was just to die for.


Love the little pleasures of date night and we loved our meal at Le Pantruche. Reserve in advance, unless you don’t mind the noise of an outside table. As you can see the food is worth it!

Le Pantruche, 3 rue Victor Massé, 75009, Paris. Metro° Pigalle. Tél: 01 48 78 55 60. Our menu was €34 for entrée+plat+dessert.
