Fodor's Review

You won't find any "concept" cooking here, just pure French bistro fare at its finest—beef salad with anchovy dressing, butter risotto with truffles, sliced leg of lamb, and traditional pork casserole. Leave room for the day's dessert, such as the wonderfully warm peach-and-frangipane tart. The prices here are as appealing as the menu. If you can't score a reservation, try one of Chef Antoine Crespo's other eateries: the Comptoir du Marché (at 8 rue du Marché) has affordable market-fresh cuisine, and the Bar des Oiseaux (at 5 rue Saint-Vincent) is a charming pasta place with a €20 set menu.
