Paris Bistros

Jump to last reply

A friend sent me to this link about Paris bistros and though other might enjoy:

I had to laugh when I read what she wrote about one of the places:

"Benoît Gauthier, the chef and owner of Le Grand Pan, is able to avoid most foreign diners, not because his cuisine is lacking but because of his remote location in the far southwestern corner of Paris — a good 10- to 15-minute walk from the closest Metro stop. You have to really be motivated to get there."

It is about half a block from the first apartment I ever rented in Paris in 1984 and while the nearest metro is a"whole" .4 miles by foot according to google maps, there is a bus that stops right in front! It is amazing to me that given how small Paris is, how many people never venture outside of the core center.
