The best Parisian bistros

The best bistrot restaurant in Paris

Dine in a broth , go out in an Art Deco setting, sit down at a trucker's table or socialize on formica ... The rascal and the titi spirit have never been so popular: egg mayo, asparagus mimosa, clafoutis and chocolate mousse hold the top of the pavement and tables with a soul are the most popular spots for trendy Parisians. The proof: all the great chefs get involved! Coolness is decidedly ageless ...

The stylish drivers of the Dumants

bistrots Les Marchés, Aux bons crus and Aux Crus de Bourgogne from Margot and Félix Dumant.

Places: with Les Marchés (16e), Aux Bons Crus (11e) and Aux Crus de Bourgogne (2e), Margot and Félix Dumant were found in installer in the energy concept of corn boy "friend" bourgeois. With their usual talent, the twins are betting on 1900s décor with large mirrors and sometimes white, sometimes checkered tablecloths and friendly terraces, while bringing a stylish and rogue clientele.

To be tested: the whole very bourgeois and absolutely extra menu! In Les Marches: eggs mayo (€ 5), entrecôte Béarnaise (€ 18) and quenelles (€ 17). The homemade foie gras from Aux Bons Crus makes people happy (€ 14), as does the free-range chicken with morels and yellow wine (€ 25), when regulars at the Crus de Bourgogne are crazy about its pepper steak ( € 30) and grand marnier soufflé (€ 12). We sprinkle the whole thing with a bottle of Burgundy , of circumstance.

Les Marchés 5 rue de la Manutention, Paris 16th, Aux Bons Crus 54 rue Godefroy Cavaignac, Paris 11th, Aux Crus de Bourgogne 3 rue Bachaumont, Paris 2nd.

The rib steak

The Relais de l'entrecôte bistrot in Paris.

The place: from Neuilly to Saint-Germain, all the beautiful Parisian people are still in search of the secret ingredient of the divine sauce of L'Entrecôte , historical monument of addictive meat and without fuss where passing Americans, CEO of the CAC and the actors jostle at the gate. Suffice to say that after a year of deprivation, taking a walk in this historic meaty monument in Marbeuf or Saint-Germain-des-Prés and regaining its atmosphere should be prescribed by prescription ...

To be tested: as usual, a unique menu with a walnut salad as a starter then a tender sirloin + a divine magical sauce a little green + crispy fries to perfection and to sprinkle with organic wines from Château de Saurs, all served in two batches by little ladies in aprons. Authentic is chic! ( Formula at € 26.50).

At Georges

At George bistrot in Paris

The place: attention institution! In the heart of the historic district of la canaille, bistros and dinners, Georges acts as a resister to the branchouilleries and out-of-date fashion of Etienne Marcel. Her clientele (teams from all the fashion houses in the block) blew up all the glamor quotas in the area and attracted passing celebrities like flies. Note: Chez Georges has extended its terrace on the divine Place des Petits Pères, always with its unmissable checkered tablecloths which still make it the cutest and most picturesque table in Paris.

To try: the muzzle salad, salmon with sorrel , grilled andouillette, the famous beef steak with mustard sauce and fries, and chocolate profiteroles .

Chez Georges 1 rue du Mail, Paris 2nd

Astier

Astier bistrot in Paris

The place: an institution made in Oberkampf since 1956 where we like to feast in style. Taken over a few years ago by Frédéric Hubig , a true gourmet dandy (Jeanne A), this pure juice bistro has kept its soul in a super polished decor.

To try : all the classics of the canaille with poultry liver terrine, pickles (€ 9), old-fashioned veal blanquette (€ 16), salted potatoes with lentils (€ 14), leg of lamb in a crust of herb (€ 16) and signature rum baba for dessert (€ 5). And the cellar : what a cellar!

At the Epi d'or

The Epi d'or bistrot in paris

The place: the whole of Paris throngs behind the retro storefront of this legendary address on rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau , a stone's throw from Louboutin . There is frenzy in the air and beautiful people to inaugurate their 5th address. Elodie and Jean-François Piège have hit hard again. After their trendy renovation of La Poule au Pot , a century-old brasserie in Les Halles, À l'Épi d'Or is unanimous. An address of atmosphere well in its juice and madly girl power with Mariola in the kitchen, Margot to manage the room and the regulars, starting with the gang of girlfriend Aurélie Saada ( Brigitte ), Caroline de Maigret or Cécile Cassel aka Hollysiz . ..

To be tested: we like to be guided by the weekly planner at a very affordable price: starter-main course or main course-dessert at 27 €. The total at 36 €. Otherwise, we put on the liver mousse to spread on Poilâne bread grilled until you are hungry (€ 7), a green salad with a memorable my faith vinaigrette (€ 9), an unforgettable croque-madame (€ 15) or a steak tartare served with homemade fries to be dipped in mayo (€ 18) to be washed down with a glass of Saint-Joseph or Coteaux d'Aix (€ 8). The coup de grace: crazy desserts such as a cup of orange blossom ice cream on an exquisite cake or rice pudding (€ 9). An advice ? Book quickly.

At the Épi d'Or 25 rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Paris 1er

les deux gares

The place: located in the 10th district, this real station bistro is a delicious foretaste of the imminent opening of the Deux Gares , the highly anticipated hotel of Adrien Gloaguen, the hotel entrepreneur of Touriste ( Bienvenue , Beaurepaire , Panache , that's him). In addition to the chef's table service, the place feels like a station and neighborhood address, from 7am for a comforting coffee-croissant then non-stop all day long with a good sandwich, until the evening thirst around. a balloon and a plate of dry sausage until midnight.

To be tested: the sensational Jonathan Schweizer , who had already turned heads at Sauvage in the 6th arrondissement with his brilliant sense of the author's bistro, here wields the same talent and deploys a simple but certainly sexy baby menu, all washed down with references the most famous of natural wine . On the slate, the starter and dessert menu changes every day (€ 23): roasted zucchini, sausage with a knife, skate wing, goose rillette, pigeon carrots or pastry cabbage with a sweet note.

le maquis

The maquis bistrot in paris

The place: voted the best bistro in Paris by the Priceless Cities Best New Bistro x Mastercard, this charming 18th district harbor smells of an atmospheric meeting point between tasteful gourmets, international fashionistas and pretty neighborhood gossips ... And for good reason: we drink shots in front of the Formica counter before sitting down on the leatherette benches , with a well-stocked playlist that comes straight… from the stoves! Because here, the gangstas like to cook with good zik '. It suits us well.

To test: plates full of technique but without fuss. It is rare to be confined to such perfection ... The menu changes every day, you may come across the fried veal brains with tartar sauce, to be worked over a plain champagne (€ 7) as an aperitif before a sea bream tartare royal shiso and lemon caviar (€ 14) and an insane black pudding pate (€ 8). Only problem: now, you will have to book well in advance. But believe our experience, you will come back to it ...

Located at the foot of the parent company, this vintage bistro with its checkered tablecloths, old-fashioned waiters and leek vinaigrette has it all. Without forgetting the only Parisian terrace to squat a bridge, installed as an extension of the room above the Seine. Unbelievable.

The petit bouillon pharamond in Paris

The place: a tripière institution in Les Halles , Le petit bouillon Pharamond is reinventing itself with Benjamin Moréel and Christopher Préchez at the helm (Café de Mars, Lefty, Little Georgette, John Weng, Le POD). Nestled in a three-storey half-timbered building stretches what the Belle Époque signed most charming: large mirrors, red velvet benches, wooden stairs, painted mirrors, mosaics, gilding and glass paste. Without forgetting the joyful terrace on a lively square in the Ventre de Paris.

Super good, super cute, the Café du Coin by super-taulier Florent Ciccoli (Cheval d'Or, Le Bien Venu) mixes styles with panache with a lot of Belle Époque and seventies references, with all the same the benches and the counter of rigor.
