Between the Arc de Triomphe and Parc Monceau, the Lorraine plays to stylish tourists and people watching locals intent upon their platters of oysters, mounds of chilled seafood and bottles of Champagne. However, eating mid-afternoon can be perilous; we found the service rather shoddy, vacillating between ignoring our order at the start and, by the end, rushing us to decide on dessert and coffee. We assumed that the skeleton crew working the dead zone between lunch and dinner was to blame. Fortunately, the kitchen was on good form: our  respectable meal began with a teensy melon ball amuse-bouche, then an upside-down warm tomato tart oozing with red juice and pine kernels, and a smoked salmon, artichoke and spring onion salad. Our big fish plates were winners : broiled cod dressed in aioli and served, unusually, with alsatian spatzle, and the daily special sea bass fillet in a a seasonal cep cream sauce, topped with a nest of celery and onion greens and fried until crisp. With desserts at 8euros to 10 euros - a lovely crepe flambed in Grand Marnier, and less lovely profiterole with trepid chocolate sauce - the bill quickly added up. Still, if you're stuck in the neighborhood and hungry, knowing that the Lorraine serves all day can be a comfort.
