Best Steak Frites - Paris
- Syphrite May 9, 2006 11:16 AM
I'm heading to Paris in just a few weeks and I've been wondering where I should go to find the best steak frites? My budget is around 120 euros for two people, including wine.
Any recommendations? :)
I wouldn't argue it as the best - but it is hard to beat brassarie balzar off of St Michael. their roasted chicken is also great. and easily in your budget.
In paris, my favorite is Le Relais de l'entrecote - nothing to do with the l'entrecote chain. There is always a line (as it is a frenchman's favorite) but it moves quickly. The sauce is incredible and there are a couple of locations. There is one at 15 Rue Marbeuf (off of the Champs Elysee) and one in the 6th at 20, bis rue st. benoit. They don't take reservations, but the wait is well worth it. They have a prix fixe menu, I can't remember what, but you should stay under 120 euro for two. It's steak/frites, salad & dessert. I can't remember if the wine was included. Good Luck!
