Within a short walk of the divine Musee Marmottan Monet on the edge of Passy is this comfortingly traditional French bistro. The lunch and dinner time specials for two or four come with a complimentary bottle of good wine and include all three courses, starter, main and dessert. The bistro's new Chef Patissier (pastry chef) Ilham Moudnib outdoes herself with a selection of desserts sporting a range from molten chocolate cake served with a dollop of Tahitian vanilla ice cream to lime and basil sorbet dished up as accompaniment to a passion fruit flaky-crust tart. Steak-frites are on the menu here but so is a nice white fish that comes with seasonal, steamed vegetables. A roast lamb with thyme can also be that irresistible temptation and when served with new potatoes is difficult to pass up.
- Romantic Dining: "This is one of those holdovers from the best of the French bistros.It's where you come to enjoy a meal with friends or tete-a-tete on a long lunch Friday afternoon. The proximity here to the Parc des Princes, the Marmottan Monet Museum and the Stade Roland Garros makes this a fabulous choice for any time of year."
- Best for Romantic Dining Because: When you have one of those long lunch Fridays in front of you this is the French bistro fare your heart's set on. Trust me.
