My husband and I are traveling to Paris next month and would love some recommendations for an inexpensive restaurant that we can enjoy on our first, jet-lagged night in Paris. We’re planning to go to Christophe, Septime, and La Ferrandaise once we've adjusted to the time, but we wanted to try
a restaurant that’s more of a hole-in-the-wall on night one.
We’re looking for a restaurant that serves humble, simple, French classics in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere, preferably one that caters to a local neighborhood. The food is more important than the ambiance, and we'd love to find something under 30Euro per person before wine.
A few years back, I went to La Chaumine Normande with a group of girlfriends and thought the food was great. I think it would fit our criteria above, but I haven’t seen anything posted on the restaurant in years. Has anyone been recently, and would you recommend it? Or is there something similar that would fit our criteria?
We’re staying in the Marais, but we don’t mind venturing out of our neighborhood.
