This is a terrific thread!<BR><BR>Le Florimond:<BR>19 av. de la Motte-Picquet in the 7th (near the Rue Cler market). <BR>Metro: Ecole Militaire<BR>Tel/fax: 01 45 55 40 38<BR>Chef-owner: Pascal Guillaumin<BR>closed Sat. mid day and Sunday<BR><BR>My husband now declares it his favorite neighborhood bistro, surpassing La Fontaine de Mars. Perfect in every way.<BR>Warm welcome, immaculate, pretty, stylish dining room, caring and gracious service, exquisite cuisine, nice house wines sold by the verre or the carafe, great value (3 course menu now goes for 28,50), chef came out to chat with all his customers at the end of the evening. Featured in &quot;Bistros of Paris&quot; the by Hamburgers. Zagat calls it a &quot;perfect neighborhood place&quot;. We dined there last week. Yummy lobster raviolis, delicious desserts such as the huge millefeuille a la Vanille. It's a &quot;don't miss&quot;, but reserve well in advance-only has 30 seats.<BR><BR>The set course &quot;menus&quot; at the chef-owned bistros we tried last week have now go up from last yr's av. of 25 to 28-32 euros, but still a great value. We dined very, very well for around $80-85, ordering the 3 course &quot;menu&quot; (with several choices), a modest bottle of southwest wine (Madiran, Cahors, Roussillon, Irouleguy, Gaillac) or a carafe of the house vin rouge, a Kir aperitif and cafe. Our most expensive bill was $89, at La Regalade for their 30 euro tasting menu, aperitifs of Jurancon, cafe and a Bearn vin de pays.<BR><BR>Other winners for us:<BR><BR>Le Pamphlet (3rd)-3 courses, 27<BR><BR>Le Dauphin (1st)-incredible 3 course weekday &quot;menu du dejuener&quot; for 23, including coffee. A fabulous bargain and exquisite cuisine!<BR><BR>L'Avant Gout (13th)-3 courses, 28, very fairly priced wines from their shop across the st.<BR><BR>Auberge de Jarente (4th)-28,50 includes a bottle of SW wine. Sweet little Basque-Bearnaise, homey place off the pretty Place Ste. Catherine the Marais.<BR><BR>L'Os a Moelle (15th)-wonderful 6 course degustation menu, 32 An exercise in pure gluttony.<BR><BR>Le Troquet (15th)-another great tasting menu, 30<BR><BR>L'Ardoise (1st)-Sunday lunch, 30<BR><BR>L'Affriole (7th)-a close second to Le Florimond, 4 courses, 28?, including little basket of 8 chocolate truffles to die for from Michel Chaudun. Always a repeater.<BR><BR><BR><BR><BR>

Hi Sakis,

Go to www.multimap.com and look up rue Guisarde.

It is just off Place St Sulpice.

This street, and the ones the it connects to are lined with good, inexpensive restaurants.

At the intersection of P. St Sulpice and rue Bonaparte is Pierre Herme Patisserie. Down the block, toward Boule St Germain is Laduree.

Le Florimond looks wonderful; we will try to visit it on our next trip.

We also liked Le Bosquet, 46 ave. Bosquet, for Alsatien food (dinner for two less than 32 Euros) and a nearby Chinese restaurant, Jardin Imperial (ave. Bosquet), dinner for two about 26 Euros, including wine.

I will also recommend the Reine Blanche. You also might try lunch, it is less expensive but good. They are not always open for lunch so check to see what days they do serve lunch.

My favorie restaurant that is affordable is La Table d'Aligre near Bastille. I dined there last October and the price was 23 euro for a wonderful three course meal. The food is exceptional and creative. The menu changess every day. They also have a good selection of wine. One of my French friends turned me on to this restaurant -- it is not in a high tourist area. It was also mentioned in the Paris issue of Bon Appetite a couple of years ago. They open for dinner about 7:30 in the evening and you will need reservations. There is usually a line outside before they open. They also serve Lunch until about 2 in the afternoon. I feel you would not be able to find a comparable meal in the USA for three times this price.

La Table d'Aligre
11, Place d'Aligre
75012 Paris
Tel: 01 43 07 84 88
Metro: Ledru Rollin, line 8

Another vote for La Reine Blanche. I was there last Saturday night (19th Oct) and we had the &euro;30 menu. But there's a cheaper menu cheaper if you eat before 7pm - I think it's &euro;17 per head. I had the pate de foie gras, grenouilles, and chocolate mousse. Delicious!!
