Le Pamphlet Closed For Renovations - Help!
Hi, I just received an e-mail back from the Concierge at our hotel that Le Pamphlet is closed for renovations. So much for all my research! We are leaving tomorrow and I am down to these two: Le Dauphin or Le Reminet. Food and atmosphere are both important but I'd say we'd definitely put more emphasis on the food. Thanks!! Claire
There are many modern valule bistro similiar to Le Pamphlet:
L'Epi Dupin in the 6th
Chez Michel, 10e
Dame Jeanne 11e
L'Avant Gout, 13e
La Cerisaie, 14e
Le Regalade, 14e
L’Os A Moelle, 15th
I've had good meals in all of the above. I do like Le Pamphlet because it is more comfortable than most of the above and the service is not as rushed.

OH VERY interested - what is this about a chef change at Mon Viel Ami? We went three times in 05 and loved it. We have been once in 06 and it was a disappointment - short uninteresting menu and bland rather vegetably food. We've been trying to gather our courage to find out whether this was an aberation or a permanent decline. Please advise. Thank you.
I went there on a Sunday night last October and had the same impression as you. The menu had very few choices and I thought it was because the kitchen was running out of food after a busy weekend. I had to wait 45 minutes for my 9:30 reservation. There was a shortage of service personel and the chef had to come to bus tables. The food was decent but it seems like the whole restaurant was out of sync. I just chalked it up as them having a bad night.
I have eaten at both Le Dauphin, a larger more "brasserie" type of atmosphere, and Le Reminet, a jewel of a chef-owned bistro, and love both. You will not go wrong at either.
