Response to Paris recommendations?
Lots of places. Here are favorites. Allard in the 6th. It's really back! Do not miss the duck with olives, one of the great world classics. And if St. Jacques are still in season start with a half order swimming in beurre blanc.
Brasserie de l'Ile. On the Ile St. Louis in the 4th. Always reliable.
L'Epi Dupin in the 6th. A bit avant guard but wonderful.
Benoit. A bit more expensive than the others. Go for lunch or Sunday nights when lots of places are closed.
Le Grand Colbert. Charming and you can forgive its size or that it is owned by a group.
Au Trou Gascon in the 13th. Love the place. Owned by Alain Dutournier.
These are all reliable, wonderful places all with a great feeling of being in Paris
