City Guide: Paris
Bistrot Paul Bert
An authentic Paris bistro that bests most others in town.
The most classic of French bistros with a picture-perfect setting, knowledgeable and funny servers, and traditional recipes cooked to perfection. Not to mention, an impressive wine list with something tasty for every budget. Signature French fare is what you’re here for, not all of which is present on the regular printed menu so keep watch for the Plats du Jour to find items like their famous steak frites. PS: If you want to recreate the restaurant’s recipes at home (and you will), owner Bertrand Auboyneau has authored a cookbook that includes sixty of his greatest hits.
