Last night I attended the French rock concert of Valhere at the newly opened concert halle ‘Les Trois Baudets’ in Montmartre – Serge Gainsbourg, George Brassens, Jacques Brel and Juliet Greco all had their start in this club that opened in 1947 & closed in 1967. Paris mayor Bertrand Delanoe worked hard to reopen it and after years of construction, the inauguration took place last week. It will be a concert hall to help promote young French artists and ‘chanson française’. After the show, 3 friends and I went to dinner in Montmartre at ‘Des Si et des Mets’, the only completely gluten free restaurant in Paris. While the ambiance was cosy and service unobtrusive, the food was above average but replete with a bit too many sauces and creams for my taste. As the restaurant has only been open for a few months, I assume they are still working out the kinks and things will only improve going forward. Homemade whole grain gluten free bread, lamb shoulder with winter vegetables and raisins & yummy cheesecake with a gluten free crust, were our favorites. The mushroom raviolies were tasty and would have been best appreciated ‘sans’ the cream sauce in which they were presented. My vegetarian option of a mixed veggie cake, arrugula salad & baked potato was lovely but for the the sticky balsamic teriyaki sauce in which it was drenched masking the flavors of all the vegetables. The gobs of sour cream and cheese topping on the potato would have been best left behind. The idea is fabulous as Gluten intolerance is becoming far too common. Definitely worth a try.
