Traditional French food - Benoit? Allard?

kvalentine | May 10, 2012 06:48 PM

I am new to Chowhound, and I have looked at previous threads, but I haven't quite found what I'm looking for. My husband and I are celebrating our first anniversary in London and Paris and I want a traditional, old-world bistro dinner in Paris, frog legs and escargot and tiny tables and all. I speak a bit of French and I would prefer to stay away from places with English menus and tourists, not to mention 80euro hors d'oeuvres. I've been looking at places like Benoit or Restaurant Allard, but not knowing Paris, I'm worried I'll end up in the Paris equivalent of Morton's Steakhouse. I would really appreciate your help!
