A sleeper among restaurants, La Truffière quietly produces excellent, modernised classical French cuisine, with the arrival of a new chef Christophe Poard in early 2016. The setting is an ancient inn with dining rooms on the beamed ground floor or vaulted stone cellar,with all the trimmings of white linen, silverware and a cheese trolley, just seconds from the student bars and cheap eateries of rue Mouffetard. You can spend a fortune if you splurge on the special black truffle menu, a house speciality (some dishes come with and without truffle versions), and all the luxuries of scallops, wild duck and the best trout. But there’s also a remarkable value daily lunch menu. The restaurant has one of the most extensive wine cellars in Paris: ask the sommelier for suggestions.
