This revisited veal blanquette is surprising at first glance. The “barely grandmother” veal blanquette of the Petit Rétro is not served with the white rice that we are used to seeing in a blanquette, it is served with black rice. This does not take anything away from the good taste of this veal blanquette that is to be enjoyed. The vegetables selected are always those from out of season, namely beans and peas, which gives this blanquette an original touch. However, you will also find carrots and a delicious cream. The price of this blanquette is 23.50 euros.

Address: 5 Rue Mesnil, 75016 Paris
