Le Petit Champerret, with its zinc bar and banquettes, has the homey feel of a bistro that has been around for a while and satisfied many a big appetite. Its chef, Marc Fontaine, may be new, but Corsican owner Gérard … Read More

One might be forgiven for thinking that a restaurant with the name Albion serves British food, but one would be wrong. True, the chef is British, but he was off on a six-month globetrot when we were there, and even … Read More

Le Bel Ordinaire is a rarity in France: a restaurant/shop funded by crowdsourcing. A goodly amount must have been raised to finance this handsome restaurant/fine grocery with a long wooden table running down the center and an open kitchen in … Read More

Dear readers, here is another great Paris restaurant find for you. Desnoyez reminds me of Etsi, reviewed here a month or so ago. Both are off-the-beaten-track small bistros with an attractive, uncomplicated decor. And both serve simple, creative, seasonal dishes … Read More
