The Best Steak Tartare in Paris? - once and for all
I will be travelling to Paris with my gal - both avid steak tartare fans - can real tartare connaisseurs please present their picks!
I am preferrably looking for something casual at lunch.
Is 'Bar Des Theatres' worth the visit?
Here's a thread from back in October 2007 - GREAT STEAK TARTARE IN PARIS? posted by Deenso. Scroll to the bottom to take a look at a video I posted.
Last October, I went to lunch at Bar des Theatres on avenue Montaigne - I'm sorry to say, I didn't like the steak tartare that much - wasn't awful, just wasn't very good.
One evening, I had tartare at Ma Bourgogne, across the street from place des Vosges. Going west it's where Francs-Bourgeois meets rue du Pas de la Mule - before you reach the square. Excellent.
Other times, I had truly delicious tartare at La Coupole.
Brasserie Balzar's steak tartare is quite good; and you get to see it prepared at the chef station in the center of the room.
