Bistro & Cie
If you're like us, the last place you want to eat in France is in a chain restaurant. It totally defeats the purpose of coming to France in the first place, for those of us on a culinary treasure hunt at least. Then one day you are fooled. You experience a fabulous restaurant and discover only afterwards that it is part of....well maybe not a chain but a "quality label". Each restaurant has a distinctive ambiance, but the same menu is available in each of the seven restaurants. You don't want to admit that this has happened to you, but there is just no way of denying that it was a very positive experience. The most important feature is the all inclusive Menu at 36 € : House aperitif, starter, main course, dessert, 1 bottle of wine for two and coffee with a large variety of dishes to choose from.
Choose from one of seven restaurants across western Paris on their website.
We're mentioning the one in the 7th (Breteuil), considering how difficult it can be to find reasonably-priced restaurants in that district.
