Le Pré Verre Review

Chef Philippe Delacourcelle knows his cassia bark from his cinnamon thanks to a long stint in Asia. He opened this lively bistro with its purple-gray walls and photos of jazz musicians to showcase his culinary style, rejuvenating archetypal French dishes with Asian and Mediterranean spices. His bargain prix-fixe menus (€13.90 at lunch, €30.50 at dinner) change constantly, but his trademark spiced suckling pig with crisp cabbage is always a winner, as is his rhubarb compote with gingered white-chocolate mousse. Ask for advice in selecting wine from a list that highlights small producers.

    Le Pré Verre Review

    We had a pleasant dinner here with new acquaintances. My french not being the best I ordered rognon de veau. It was served in a delicious sauce with very tasty rice cakes, however it was kidney of veal and it brought me back to the dinners my mother made us eat called a "mixed grill"; kidney, liver, and bacon. I would recommend the restaurant for the quality of food, service, and atmosphere.

    What an amazing, affordable meal!

    I don't where the last reviewer ate, but the food at Le Pre Verre was DELICIOUS! The place appears to be a popular spot for locals and is also tourist friendly, with menus in English and French. They offer a pre-fixe menu with a selection of creative entrees. On the two nights we ate there, we truly enjoyed everything. Particularly good was the cod with smoked mashed potatoes and the leg of lamb with polenta. They also have an extensive wine list. I strongly recommend this restaurant for anyone who wishes to eat good, modern French food. This place is far far better than any corner bistro or brasserie. ENJOY!

    Ruined!

    This bistro used to be a real gem. Unfortunately,
    it has now been taken over by crude thugs. The kitchen used be simply amazing. Now, the only amazing thing is that anyone will put up with the
    sort of abuse this place seems eager to dish out.
    On my last visit, my food was burnt, they tried to
    pawn off TWO corked bottles of wine on me,
    and I was subjected to the kind of verbal
    abuse one might expect from Seinfeld's
    Soup Nazi. I wouldn't eat at this place again
    if it were the last restaurant in Paris!
