My husband and I always talk about being a month ahead of NY Times on finding and discovering new places in the neighborhood. Well, they beat us to this one. It’s on my list to try when we return this summer. A tiny, successful restaurant from the 11th Arr. decides to open Itinéraires, twice as large, in the Latin Quarter. And the proprietors are only 30 years old husband and wife team. What intrigued me was the blackboard menu: Jerusalem artichoke soup comes garnished with a granita of foie gras; roast cod is topped with layers of tempura vegetables; and pheasant breast is accompanied by dates, pistachios, fruit compote and the odd nugget of buckshot. All stuff I like. Apparently Itinéraires is already on the itineraries of many Parisians and visitors. Best to book ahead.
