Seeking Restaurant recommendation in 17th arrondissement
For something a little different, try the restaurant at l'Institut Vatel, the local cooking school. We were very pleased, and it fits your budget very nicely. Food was inventive, fresh, service excellent. All prepared and served by students, under professional supervision. A surprisingly elegang diining room, and wonderful experience.
Also to mention that Bath's is good (Was there last weekend) but not such a pleasant place, very design but cold. Also, we waited a lot and they look seriously understaffed. So it was not a very nice evening despite an excellent company. But the food is good and not expensive. The restaurant across the street Villebois-Mareuil is nicer but has a very short menu and wine list. I like it but not everybody does.
Le gourmet des ternes -- don't miss the butter tender beef and the baba au rhum.
Find dining: Michel Rostang for the great 79euros lunch menu (see review at julotlespinceaux.blogspot.com)
Next door id le bistrot d'a cote (they share their fridges-- the Rostang family) and also Il etait une oie dans l'ouest
