Some really snarky replies early on. Sorry, people, but anyone who took a French class before 1975 knows about Boul Mich.

Sir Milione, I would be interested in hearing where you ended up eating. Also, if anyone can add to this thread with updates, mercy!

I'm familiar with the 7th and the areas near the Bastille and Gares d'Lyon and Austerlitz, but this trip we will be staying near Boul Mich.

Call me "comically passé," if you like.

Oh, me too. I looked at this thread because it referred to the "Boul'Mich." And frankly, I was happy to hear it, because I would refer to it that way TO MYSELF recently, and wonder why I didn't hear the reference on this forum.

Now I have my answer. My last French lesson was in 1952, so NO WONDER!! Very funny.

My French friend says most of my idioms en francais sound like her grandmother, and the my accent sounds like I come from Marseilles. Oh, ma foi, que faire??

Le Reminet is a step above a lot in that neighborhood. Chez Fernand is also nearby , It is a sister to the Petit Fernand listed above. We also like Le Caveau d'Isle on Ile St Louis a short walk away

Make a feature of it, I would. There's a phrase my mother remembered from her schoolbook (circa 1920s) that I'd love to be able to drop into conversation in France: in this book, one of the many dull happenings in the life of the family Dupont was the day the dog vanished - and when it returned, the maid greeted it with "Ah, te voilà déjà de retour, fripon!"
