Breton restaurants in Paris?

Besides Chez Michel, would you recommend any other restaurants specializing in Breton cuisine? Thanks for any suggestions!

  1. L'Agassin, rue Malar. In general, it is hard to identify breton cuisine beyond the heavy use of flour in crepes and pastry, the generosity in butter. Basically, a lot of it is about super fresh seafood -- but that's the charm of Bretagne when you're there.

    1. We found a great informal restaurant in southern Bretagne a couple of years ago - the specialities are oysters and whole grilled lobster (homard) with frites! They have a branch in Paris - L'Ecailleur du Bistrot in rue Paul-Bert in the 11th arrondisement. Homard-frites are nearly as good as in Nevez!!

        Interesting, a block from my apartment, and the oysters were very good, but very, very expensive. Place friendly and not complaining, but price has kept me away since.
