Au Boeuf Couronné
Au Boeuf Couronné Review
Parc de La Villette once housed the city's meat market, and this brasserie devoted to fine beef (whether French or Irish) soldiers on as if nothing has changed. It's worth the trek out to this far-flung neighborhood to sample one of the 16 takes on the beef theme (plus a gargantuan marrow bone) or good fish and seafood dishes, such as sole or scallops (in season). You'll find bon vivants from all over Paris in the buzzy dining room, feasting on the great-value €34, four-course lunch menu that includes an apéro and a half bottle of wine.
