One of my good friends in France took me to this bistrot, one of a handful featured in a new book called " bistrots de Chefs a Paris".
It's all about tradition, best ingredients, respect for the client and passion infused food from non-celebrity Chefs.
L'Ordonnance hides itself away in a back street of the 14th arrondissement, far from the tourist trail, but very well patroned neverttheless.
A funny story told to us by the chef's wife goes like this:
A badly informed journalist writes that the Chef is Japanese - consequently they get fully booked with hordes of Japanese tourists, until the record is finally put straight: the Chef is actually from Alsace!
