Searching for a restaurant in the trendy Marais district, we were directed to Glou on a busy street. The small interior was booked, but they seated us at a tiny outdoor table on the street. But the people watching was like a Paris fashion show and it made the better than average dinner more fun. When the shops on either side of the restaurant closed, the owner set up more tables. Service was excellent; we did not like the bland cold soup we ordered for an entree and they happily replaced it with a delicious eggplant dish. We also had a very good guinea fowl entree served over a salad. The main course was suckling pig, excellent taste but predictably fatty and a rather small portion. Dessert was a pineapple mousse, refreshing and light. A good rose wine complemented the dishes. This is a happening place and the young chic crowd enlivened the experience. Near the end of the meal, the inevitable smoker lit up. Why can't the French realize that just because the table is outdoors, smoke blowing in ones face is just as bad as if you were indoors?
