Tiny Gems in Paris: Marais and the 6th

famdoc | Jun 24, 200903:58 PM     1

For those of you looking for something not necessarily world-famous, but charming, affordable and quite good, we made the following two discoveries during our recent visit:

In the 6th, check out the tiny Au Pied de Fouet du 6eme at 3, rue St. Benoit.
One of three sister restaurants in Paris, it seats barely 40 on two levels and specializes in the cuisine of the Auvergne (in Central France). Very well-prepared and well-priced (most entrees were less than 20 Euros), with a very convivial staff.

In the Marais, we loved Au Petit Fer a Cheval at 30, Rue Vieille du Temple. There is a bar and a few tables up front, but I suggest seating in the dining area in the rear. Just good bistro cooking, we enjoyed a filet de sandre (a white, flaky fish) a l'estragon for 17 Euros. The chef in this tiny kitchen can be seen through an open door working hard and smiling as our table enjoyed his cooking.
