Toby Bryans: Pour manger à Paris

Here are a list of restaurants that I have enjoyed in Paris.

Cafè Latèral

It's very near the Arc de Triomphe but most tourists don't go down Avenue Mac-Mahon so it's only French people there and as such the food is really good. It is both a traditional french bar / brasserie but there is a slightly less hectic restaurant in a small room in the back if you prefer something slighly more spacious / quiet.

4, Avenue Mac-Mahon 75 017 PARIS. Tel: +33 1 43 80 20 96.

Le Louchébem

Louchébem is french Butcher' slang for Butcher. If you really want to ea good meat then this is a great place to go. They serve loads of different cuts from lots of different animals. You may have to book; it was very busy when we went.

Corner of 10, rue des Prouvaires and 31, rue Berger 75001 PARIS. Tel: +33 1 42 33 12 99.

La Rotonde Bastille

A funky modern bar serving good snacky food near Bastille. Bastille can be a bit overwhelming and this bar with friendly staff and a chilled out atmosphere (there's cool art on the walls and funky music in the background) is a good spot to get away from the madness.

No website, but here's the google info page on it. 17 Rue Roquette, 75011 Paris +33 1 47 00 68 9.

Brasserie Bofinger

A classic french bistrot experience. The food is excellent, the dress code is smart casual or above (the waiters are all in black tie) and most people there are french. Booking essential.

3 Rue Bastille, 75004, Paris. Tel: +33 1 42 72 87 82.
