In Paris for three days

Hey all

My dad and my brother are off to Paris next weekend for the Ireland - France rugby match. They'll be staying in the 17th arrondissement near the Arc de Triomphe. It's a fairly short visit - they're flying out on Thursday morning and coming back Saturday night.

They're looking for a few good restaurants, both in the 17th and elsewhere in case they're eating when they're out sightseeing. Price range is around €30-€40 per person. Can anyone recommend anywhere to give them a sample of really good, not too pricey French food?

  1. Not a cheap neighborhood. They are gonna have to watch their budget if they want to keep it.

    Le Bistro d'a Coté (open sunday!)and Il était une Oie dans le Sud-Ouest rue Gustave Flaubert; L'Entredgeu rue Laugier ; BE (bakery where you can have lunch and buy amazing sandwiches and pastry- by Ducasse and Kayser) bd de Courcelles; also across the street is a brasserie with good meat whose name escapes me. Great sushis to go at Okame faubourg Saint Honoré. They are next to the market on rue Bayen&Poncelet where they should not miss Divay and Maison Pou for foie gras and all sorts of pig delights, Planete Fruits for vegetables and fruits, and Alleosse for cheese (all open sunday morning). Also La Brulerie des Ternes for coffee if they like it. Oh and I amost forget Petrissans, great food and great wine with a nice terrace, Avenue Niel.

    1. Thanks very much Souphie, they sound like some great spots. I'm getting jealous that I'm not going myself!
