suggestions for simple places

dolphin146 | Jan 15, 2007 06:07 AM

I'll be in Paris (my 2nd visit) from 5-9 February (noon Monday to noon Fri more or less). Last time (2004) we hit many small neighborhood-type bistros and had a ball (esp. at Les Petits Marseillais (3rd), Le Petit Caboulot (18th), and La Gavroche
(2nd)) at almost every one.

This time I have a tight budget again but was looking for suggestions for simple neighborhood places for (for example) confit de canard, pates/terrines, riz de lait, washed down with un pichet du vin maison, all music to the palate of this raging Francophile. I would especially appreciate any locations with distinctive wine features (ie, a house Beaujolais made for them, etc.). I want to linger, relax and take in the sights and sounds of the city and its people while dining.

I'm staying in the 10th but will go anywhere in the city and I speak a hapless, hideously accented but (in the end) passable French.

Help is much appreciated, and I can reciprocate with suggestions in Philadelphia, NYC and Chicago.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
