Fodor's Expert Review Les Bouquinistes

$$$$ St-Germain-des-Pres French

Expect to hear more English than French in the cheery, contemporary dining room of this bistro, with its closely packed tables looking out onto the Seine. But luckily the sophisticated seasonal cuisine—such as snails and mussels with gnocchi, followed by British Hereford beef with squash-stuffed rigatoni and a caramel crème brûlée—is as authentic as you could hope for. The €36 menu du marché (back from the market) lunch menu seems less imaginative than the pricier à la carte options—though it does include three courses and a glass of wine.
