Fodor's Review

The prodigiously talented Grégory Marchand worked with Jamie Oliver in London before opening this brick-and-stone-walled bistro on a pedestrian street near Rue Montorgueil. Word of mouth and bloggers quickly made this one of the most packed bistros in town, with tables booked two months in advance, despite two seatings each evening. Marchand owes a large part of his success to the great-value €48 three-course menu at dinner (prix fixe only)—boldly flavored dishes

such as calamari gazpacho with squash blossoms, and melt-in-the-mouth braised lamb with roasted eggplant and spinach are excellent options. Service can be, shall we say, a tad brusque, but for some that's a small price to pay for food this good. If you can't get a reservation, nearby Frenchie Bar à Vins will fix you right up.
