Un Defi -- ex-Parisian (born US) Here; non-Trendy Places?

75 percent cacao | Oct 30, 2012 09:40 AM

I haven't lived in Paris since 2004, so I've been telling US friends (for a couple of years at least) that my resto choices can't be trusted. Things change too quickly.

Now it's my turn to ask, as my wife and I will make a visit:

Good North African? West African?

Unpretentious bistro?

Reliable southeast Asian, 13eme or not?

Solid boulangerie?

You get the idea: I'm not interested in the latest, fashionable, yadda-yadda; I lived in Paris long enough to know what I like, and it's >good grub<.

Can anyone get me >down< to speed, so to speak?

Oh -- no fusion, please.
