Fodor's Expert Review Le Buisson Ardent

$$$ The Latin Quarter French Fodor's Choice

This charming Quartier Latin bistro with woodwork and murals dating from 1925 is always packed and boisterous. A glance at the €39.90 set menu—a bargain €28 at lunch for three courses—makes it easy to understand why. Dishes such as chestnut soup with spice bread, squid with chorizo and creamy quinoa, and quince Tatin (upside-down tart) with mascarpone and pink pralines put a fresh twist on French classics, and service is reliably courteous. If you don't finish your bottle of wine, you can take it with you to savor the last drops.
