It’s not alway easy to find good places to eat in St-Germain but this little beamed bistro, on a side street behind the former market, happily continues to produce age-old dishes, like snails, boeuf bourguignon and roast veal kidneys, along with tempting desserts. Others dig into big steaks. There are a couple of tables outside on the pavement, but it’s much more preferable to sit inside – a small, narrow space with ever-so-trad red banquettes and red and white checked cloths. Most of the people who come here for lunch are clearly regulars, some of whom greet chef Rémi Lebon by name when he comes out of the kitchen.
