Yesterday I had a very nice salad in this slightly overpriced restaurant down the road from the IETF venue. Its a Brasserie specialized in Fruit de Mere.
I ordered Salade Italienne. Very nice indeed, until I hit a bug, covered in olive oil, that was enjoying the salad too. I am not a specialist in insects but I know cockroaches come in many different shapes and forms. The small animal covered in oil could have been a baby cockroach.
I signaled the waiter and after several "Oh-la-la’s" he offered me a new salad. I lost my appetite so I refused. So far nothing to complain about. But then came the bill. I was charged. Then I specifically asked if something could be done about that. And to be honest I’d settled for anything symbolic, free wine, free desert, espresso, anything. But the waiter could not be convinced.
Hence my recommendation. Do not go to:
Le Ternes Pereire
84, Avenue de Ternes
Actually pass by, look at the menu, and if the waiter tries to convince you to come in just mention the cockroach in the salad.
