best solo dining spots in Paris
I'm popping over the Channel for the weekend and I am hoping to find some of the best solo dining spots in Paris if anyone can suggest a few? I used to live there myself but would like some fresh perspective on dining.
I'd like to find comfy places to go, sitting maybe at an oyster/tapas style counter or just a neighborhood gem where you feel relaxed at your own table.
I really enjoy visiting places on my own and have made quite a project of it so any help appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Great place for a reasonable solo lunch/dinner is Les Cocottes, No reservations
135, rue Saint-Dominique, (VIIe). Tél. : 01 45 50 10 31. Métro : École-Militaire. Had lunch last Saturday and it is the best concept I have seen with the potential to succeed in most major cities if the quality of the food is kept at a high level.
Its part of the Christian Constant restaurant and desert/chocolate empire on the 7th. Les Cocottes is a 'French diner' with a long counter and some 2 and 4 top tables. The food is prepared in individual 'cocottes' cast iron pots. Great food and deserts at reasonable prices. Had a salad and coq au vin with caraffe of wine for 35€
One place that I like solo is Les Fontaines on rue Soufflot in the 5me. It looks rather like a bar, but is really a great neighborhood restaurant with delicious renditions of traditional bistro food.
I always seem to meet interesting folks to talk to while dining there!
