Filet Mignon de Porc at La Bonne Excuse, France

We discovered La Bonne Excuse in 2014 by accident and fell in love with it. The kitchen is open so you can watch the excellent chef. It's small but very friendly. We went there for our 50th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time including being wished a happy anniversary by everyone in the restaurant instigated, I'm sure, by the owner. When we returned 18 months later, they remembered us which was a big surprise. Then we decided to do our 55th anniversary here and not only did they remember us, we were escorted to "our table." They seem to remember everything. Once when I asked for a vegetable substitution, the chef came out to ask what vegetables I liked and then delivered the plate to me asking if it was suitable. Not only was it suitable, it was delicious and beautiful. He had added edible flower blossoms to the vegetables. It's a little out of the way on rue de Verneuil which is a small side street, but it is an easy walk from the Orsay and several other very popular places.
