  • Paris Restaurants

    Will be in Paris for 5 days. Staying near Place de la Concorde. Looking for nice bistro-style venues as opposed to Michelin starred establishments. Have already booked Au Vieux Paris d'Arcole.

    Patricia Wells has the greatest Paris ap. It's like 5 bucks and worth a million

      I'm planning a trip myself. Was looking for some new and interesting things ...recently saw this NY Times review for this place:

      La Table d’Aki, 49, rue Vaneau; (33-1) 45-44-43-48. An average lunch, without wine, is 40 euros ($50 at $1.25 to the euro). At dinner, there are prix fixe menus for four courses (46 euros) or five (60 euros), without wine.

          La Regalade - quintessential Paris bistro (the original in the 14th). If you don't mind going really local, we had a wonderful dining experience a few months ago at Chez Marie Louise in the 10th.

            I always recommend Bistro Paul Bert on Rue Paul Bert in the 11th near Bastille. Great food and wonderful wine list.

                "Partaking of wine is a matter of moderation. Wine warms us and invigorates us; we offer it to the weak for comfort ... Sobriety is not abstinence from this delicious beverage; it is moderation. "

                  Just off the Place de la Concorde is Carre des Feuillants. It is a Michelin 2 star, but one of my favorite places in Paris. Worth a look since you're staying there IMHO.
