Paris Bistros, Restos

Recommended Posts

le Repaire de Cartouche

Had lunch here last week and it was so good I've booked dinner for next month!.

 

Added bonus of being right by the metro on the 8 line.

We will be staying on R. des Ecoles in the 5th, but using the Metro is no problem. We would be most appreciative if you could recommend a resto or 2 for us to try.

i've stayed on Rue des Ecole my last few times.. it's a great place to base yourself and much of Paris is walking distance..

 

there is a wonderful market right outside of the Maubillon (sp?) Metro Stop.. saturday and a few other days..

 

Kayser, the bakery, is in the neighborhood as well, and is one of the best in Paris..

 

we usually leave the neighborhood to eat.. this time around we returned to Fish, a British owned place on Rue de Seine, which has a nice young vibe, great wine list, and an extremely reasonably 3 course meal.. also went to La Coupole at the recommendation of the conceriege.. enjoyed the meal.. as much for the ambience and the crowd (this palce is huge) as the food itself, although the raw bar is incredible..

I am here taking notes, mapping places, looking at the calendar, checking reviews, printing Mo's old writings (three years worth only), checking books and websites, having extra fun while foregoing real everyday work. I love the planning part of travelling.

Depending on what you are interested in paying, "Senderens", which is open 7 days a week lunch and dinner (the bistro version of Lucas-Carton, at the Place de la Madelaine location). I have not yet visited, but always liked LC. It's top on my own list. :rolleyes:

Thanks,Cabby. I had forgoten about that. I asked for a res. at Yves Comdebord's new place but was told they are booked "til the end of the year). I am trying Le Mesturet. They have an interesting carte and are focussed on the terroir of the foods they use.

According to the press around the time Lucas-Carton gave up its three stars, the average price (don't know if just food) per meal is about 100 euros (1/3 or less of the original average). I thought LC was impressive as it was. :rolleyes:

Lucas Carton was always a reliable/reasonable place to pop by for lunch. I'm not sure how I will like the new concept. Will give it a try for sure.

I was able several times to have lunch without a reservation at la Regalade when Camdeborde was still in charge there by showing up right at opening time or late, around two-thirty. Of course I was dining alone, which makes a difference.

 

I personally would trust the palates of Pim and Cabby more than my own, 'cause they actually know something.

We are leaving Sunday. Unless someone can get us in to Le Comptoir, we are eating at Le Mesturet Wed. night. The other meals are all in bistros. We decided not to go for 3* food this trip except for one meal in Brittany.
