Le Nouveau Carillon - When You Need A Big Salad


If you've just finished a scenic romp aorund the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur and find yourself hungry, walk down the street from metro Abbesses to the corner of Rue des Martyrs. Le Nouveau Carillon sits just at the corner, but pay attention, because you'll most likely miss it on account of a glaringly pink boutique that dominates the scene.

Take a seat at one of the outdoor tables at Le Nouveau Carillon and order one of the Grandes Assiettes Fraicheur… or in English, “The Really Big Salads.”  Yes, a salad. But before you scoff at the idea of ordering just a salad, look first at the description of this just a salad.

‘Le Carillon’ : haricots verts, agrumes, magrets fumés, copeaux de foie gras, échalotes, œuf dur, jambon de pays - 13,00 €

The generous portion of foie gras is worth the price alone, but the magrets, œuf dur, and jambon de pays could constitue a meal unto themselves. It should be noted that there is a certain atmospheric delight in watching Bobos buy surfer shorts and Hawaiian shirts at said exercise in color scheme disasters across the street.

given the generous info above how disappointing if you like your beer at 9 euros and insipid tuna tiny steak frozen french fries this is the place to go give this place a big zero on your trip to paris...horrendous.
