Going out to a restaurant became a treat after the pandemic and we edited our favorite classics we are visiting first when spending a weekend in Paris to dine and wine.
If you are looking for a classic, book a table at La Pule Au pot, for your favorite cuisine bourgeoise in Paris. I recommend the Charolais beef filet with green beans and onion soup before.
Another address for classic French food. A neighborhood bistrot with mirrors on the wall and terrazzo floors. The food is simple but deliciously prepared. Order a classic steak frites with sauce Bearnaise and you will be fine.
This restaurant is already a feast for the eye with its beautiful interior.
With a large choice of natural wines come seasonal dishes, influenced by the Sardinian roots of the owner Simone Tondo. You will find homemade sausage with fennel seeds, the creamiest burrata and not to miss the giant veal chop alla Milanese. This popular restaurant is a piece of Paris history.
LE BISTROT PAUL BERT
Located in a preserved 1970 butcher’s shop this restaurant is a classic with great value. The dishes come simply on a plate with out any special presentation, but the flavors do the rest. Try the slow cooked milk fed pork with apricots, prunes and almonds and order their signature desert, a choux pastry with a praline-cream filling.
I love this restaurant in spring and summer as you can sit nicely outside on their flower – fringed terrace. Paul Cézanne, Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Picasso had been regulars, today you will meet art students and gallery owners of the Quartier.
The food is simple and typical French, like charcuterie platters, steak tartare and croque monsieur.
Still a classic for sea food in a typical Parisian setting that has not changed. Come only for the assortiment de fruit de mer, as the rest of the menu is not so good, but the lively atmosphere is a perfect companion while sipping Sancerre and oysters
