Paris is one place that you go in hope, no in search of, a good cliché. You want to take a cheesy photo in front of the shimmering Eiffel Tower. You want to walk along the Seine feeling smug and loved up. You want to eat a lot of oozing cheese, buy a freshly-baked baguette, get drunk on cheap red wine. And you want to have a languorous lunch at an authentic Parisian bistro.
Le Bistrot Paul Bert is just that. Set on a quiet back street and full of locals, this is a calm and quaint restaurant that will indulge all of your Parisian fantasies. The ‘prix fixe’ set lunch costs 36 Euro (reasonable by Parisian standards) and offers a choice of bistro classics that are executed to perfection. Enjoy frisée salad with poached egg and lardons followed by delicious steak frites, and make sure you save room for the Paris Brest - an insanely delicious and decadent choux pastry concoction, stuffed with hazelnut cream.
