Bonjour tout le monde,
I'm an American living in Brittany right now and I'm going to spend a week in Paris (two weeks from now) with another friend form the states. We are both foodies from Austin, both prefer a more lively atmosphere to stuffy, classic fine dining, and would both always pick a perfectly executed simple meal over something trendy.
We rented an apartment and are most excited about markets and cooking in, but I'd still like to line up two, or maybe three, great meals out.
Perhaps, one more traditional French and then one a bit more experimental and fun? These are the places I've come up with based on reviews/ chowhound boards.
If you, chow hounders, had to pick two (or maybe three) which would you feel are essential?
Chez Georges (rue du mail)
Chez L'ami Jean
Frenchie (Think we might not be able to get a reservation, though)
Merci beaucoup en avance!
