Le Bistrot Gourmand

To supplement my article “Hidden Treasures in Paris’s 17th” (published at Bonjour Paris), I’m posting some additional pictures of the bistro I review in the piece.


Which do you prefer, the fine wines or the coffee by the cup?

Everything in the bistro, from the food to the decor, is authentic.

  1. LOVE this place. Remind me when I come back to go there. I”ll forget. The only thing I don’t care for is the hideous ketchup bottles. I suppose everyone wants it for their frites but it’s so damn américain! When in Paris…. well you know the drill.

    • Hi Virginia!

      It is a really fun place. Let me know when you come and i’ll make reservations for you! The ketchup is there, I imagine, only for the Anglo-Saxon business people that are in the neighborhood. The staff here never put the ketchup on the table and, if you ask, they’re probably going to give you a hard time. Don’t worry, it’s a very French place. 🙂

      See you in the streets,

      Paris Paul
