Finish up with a fresh mango or caramelized bananas, and note that there is a surprisingly good wine list. Very popular with a well-dressed local crowd. Run by the charming Madame Ly, this elegantly decorated dining room (Chinese ginger jars, pots of orchids, low lighting) is a relaxing and very pleasant place for a meal of carefully prepared Chinese and other Asian specialties. We always start with spring rolls, steamed ravioli and maybe one of the Thai-style salads, then enjoy the filet of beef with ginger and chives, lacquered duck, or sole with caramel sauce.
30am) also makes this an excellent spot for a late lunch. With a convenient location in the heart of Paris near the Tuileries and the Place de la Concorde, this popular family-owned brasserie has an appealing menu that will satisfy any appetite. Start with oysters, escargots or onion soup, and then try sole meuniere, steak tartare or grilled Scottish salmon. I particularly enjoy their Sunday special, which is roast lamb with aligot, an Auvergnat dish of potatoes whipped with fresh cheese curds and garlic. The non-stop service (from 11. They also serve pasta and salads and offer a special menu for children under 12.
This is a simple café that serves its area well, and since that happens to be the Latin Quarter, it pulls a mix of academics, students and travelers. I enjoy it for the broad terrace overlooking a pretty square, the handy nearby cab rank, and the fact that it’s an everyday Parisian café in one of the city’s most heavily visited neighborhoods. The wine list is decently priced for a café in a prime precinct, and the waiters are friendly. Don’t arrive at this workaday café expecting anything particularly glamorous.
For a main course, I usually go with the grilled sole or the squid à la Provençale, always order a bottle of Menetou-Salon, and never pass up the made to order apple tart, although the crêpes à l’orange are terrific, too. Francisco Pirès, who runs the shellfish stand at this very popular seafood restaurant in a quiet well-heeled corner of the 17th arrondissement near the Place des Ternes, just won the annual competition for France’s best oyster shucker, and this doesn’t surprise me at all, since I’ve admired his deft touch at opening these bivalves for a longtime. The challenge, of course, is to open these gnarly shellfish without damaging the oyster or covering it with splintered shell, and Pirès makes this tough job look easy. Aside from oysters, other good starters here include smoked Norwegian salmon and stuffed clams or mussels.
To be sure, the kitchen has had some ups and downs during the last few years, but my last meal here was excellent. It’s still a grand experience to daydream over the vista and be coddled in an elegant dining room. Each dish comes with a postcard with the serial number of the bird as a souvenir, and service is serious and cordial in the best old-fashioned traditions of Gallic gastronomy. Sadly, this storied restaurant has never been the same since the passing of Claude Terrail, the dapper owner and maître d’hôtel par excellence. Come for lunch to get the view at its best, and also perhaps to take advantage of the good-value prix-fixe lunch menu. Yet it still serves up one of the loveliest views in Paris (the back of Notre Dame, the Seine and its banks) and its famous roast caneton (duckling) in orange sauce.
Orsay presents great works from 1848 to 1914 from famous artists including Whistler, Monet, Renoir, Degas, van Gogh, Cezanne, Gauguin and Picasso to name a few. It’s the best art museum in Paris after the Louvre. This morning we visit the Musee d’ Orsay.
A happy exception to the sorry decline of the traditional Parisian brasserie (most of them are now owned by chains), this bourgeois table in the silk-stocking 16th arrondissement attracts a chic crowd to eat excellent traditional French comfort food in a lively dining room with a 1950s décor. Also appreciated are the non-stop serving hours during the weekend, when it can be a challenge to find a good place for a late lunch. Service is brisk to occasionally brusque, in the style of many busy brasseries. Start with fresh oysters, escargots, green-bean salad or fish soup, and continue with sole meuniere, Bresse chicken, or a filet mignon with frites and Béarnaise sauce. I also love the blanquette de veau (veal in cream sauce) and stuffed cabbage.
