My Trip to Paris, France: Marie Suzy

After a long morning of visiting Versailles and exploring the gardens grounds via golfcart, we were famished. We were in the area of Place Charles de Gaulle and were looking for something simple. Unfortunately, something simple isn't too easy to find on Sundays in Paris. Many restaurants were closed. Luckily we stumbled upon Marie Suzy, a cozy little restaurant with a small menu. But it gave us exactly what we needed at the time which was some sustenance until dinner.

I decided to have something not too heavy since it was a warmer day. I opted for the steak tartare which came out in a very large serving. I would say it was 3 inches across and about 3/4 inch high. It was a hefty serving. Luckily, it came with some bread and a small salad on the side. The finely diced meat was dressed nicely. The flavor of the meat wasn't overwhelmed. Instead, it was accented. I really enjoyed it.

Mr. M&P had the croque monsieur which was served open faced with one slice of bread, ham, and a cheese sauce on top. He thought it to be just fine and enjoyed it.
Marie Suzy wasn't bad and quite nice. It's not a destination place but if you're in the area and need something to eat (especially on a Sunday afternoon), this may be a place to consider. It certainly fueled us through the climb up the Arc de Triomphe.
