This neat, red-and-yellow bistro in the villagey Butte-aux-Cailles district is always a reliable bet, with a friendly unpretentious atmosphere. Chef Christophe Beaufront juggles French regional tradition and cosmopolitan influences, so amid warming soups and casseroles, thick steaks and confits, you might find duck fillet with green tea risotto, cod with Chinese cabbage or saté suckling pig. The lunch menu is an incredible bargain for the soup and dish of the day, glass of wine and coffee. On the three-course menu, you can sample Beaufront’s trademark pot-au-feu aux épices, a succulent, gingery pork stew, accompanied by a glass of broth.
