Bontanique, 71, rue de la Folie-Méricourt, Paris 11

For the last two years, this place has arguably been the greatest lunch deal in all of Paris -- two courses for 20€, three for 23€ of outstanding quality, and one of the best selections of wines in all of Paris (even more than what's on the carte).

Starting next week, lunches will only be Monday and Tuesday, although the restaurant will continue all its night services.

Today, I had a super salad of bulots, then pintade with ratatouille, and finally a wonderful dark chocolate tarte with chocolate mousse. With a glass of outstanding white wine from Provence and a glass of Côtes-du-Rhône from one of the Southern Rhône's greatest producers plus a 7´€ supplement for the pintade, total was only 45,50€.

Especially since Monday is not an easy day to find restaurants, I encourage readers to keep this place in mind. 3, 5, 8, 9, 11 métros are all nearby, as well as a number of bus lines.

Café Méricourt,
La Folie en Tête
