Old-school French food on the Left Bank in Paris
Thanks for the information, David. I understand the dilemma they are faced with. I might also add that when I was moved to another table, the table next to us was occupied by 6 young ladies from New York and behind us were 5 Frenchmen, and they keep their conversation to a reasonable level.
Great recommendation, fantastic food and service. I would like to suggest that the young staff which offered great service, request loud American customers to lower their voices, I had to request to be moved to another table and was seated next to another group of young Americans, and they spoke in lower voices. Once again many thanks
David. You sure get around. Paris NYC etc.
all those hard working days paid off.
Good for you and Happy Thanksgiving from Lambertville NJ.
All sounds delicious. One thing I wanted to pass on to you is if you plan another trip to the States . If you go to Costco I highly recommend the large bag of delicious walnuts. Great price and I use them in your fruit and nut bars and, also, in a spring mix salad with dried cranberry and feta. Delicious stuff. I always keep a bag of Costco pecans in the freezer but the walnuts are equally delicious.
Fun review. Do you have a recipe to recommend that uses beef cheeks for boeuf bourguignon? Thanks!
Regarding cheese from Isigny Ste. Mere - I just bought a Double Cream Brie, (Made in Normandy) from there at Costco. It’s a 600 g wheel and is delicious! Next time you’re in San Francisco give it a try. They always seem to have it.
One dish after the other in this post drew me in ... .. the most classic of French foods..... but, the icing on the cake is the fan-damn-tabulous Chartreuse selection .
Having just been inParis with my tribe I was sorry not to have had this address. We ate and drank well but…it rained for the entire time.
Oh, the variety of Chartreuse!!!! Swoon!
Having just returned from Paris, I was happy to read this post. We ate very well--not as “fancy” as this place, but we were generally happy with our restaurant selections. Love razor clams, and your wine selections and that dessert all sound delicious. Hope you had fun! 🇫🇷
I love the information you provide about Paris restaurants and keep my ever growing list for visits!
I can't stop drooling over those photos. Everything looks and sounds amazing. Thank you
Great article! Thank you so much for your tips and recommendations! Love seeing your newsletter in my inbox!
Can’t figure out how to make a suggestion Re the sticky glue. Try lighter fluid with a razor to scrap it off.
David, Such a coincident, we went to Chez Fernand Christine on our last visit to Paris in June. My husband was wearing his WWII hat with his Combat Infantry Badge. A man sitting next to us noticed his hat and opened up a conversation about my husband’s DDay experiences. He was a lawyer from Washington, D.C. visiting Paris with his son and nephew. We enjoyed our conversation with them. At the end of the meal, he bought our meal. So, we have a pleasant memory of Chez Fernand Christine. Thank you for calling to mind this memory.
This is one of our favorite restaurants on the Left Bank. The service is always so friendly and the food is great. Thanks for a lovely Sunday morning treat!
