When you take your table here at this bistrot-brasserie, keep in mind that you are dining at one of General de Gaulle's former regular spots. This restaurant has been around long enough to witness the slow gentrification of the neighborhood and also to bear witness to the passing of the times. It was where Jean Gabin was featured in a number of scenes for the classic French film, Gueule d'Amour. For starters you could order a terrine of chicken liver paté prepared with honey and served with an onion confit, followed by Gaspacho Andalou. For your main, choose from the hearty Black Angus steak or a hefty ham shank. Wash all of this down with a glass or two of French wine or a pint of cold beer.

- 2nd Arrondissement - Montorgueil's Best Restaurants: "For that meal that the French call "snacking", this restaurant has gotten on board by adding club sandwiches and hamburgers to their otherwise traditional French bistro menu. Still, it's hard to pass up a duck when it's served with braised new potatoes in a sweet and sour honey sauce."
