Brasserie for a group of women in paris
We are a group of 8 women going to Paris next month. We are staying in the 1st, and looking for a brasserie suggestion nearby, or within in a 10 -15 minute cab. Thinking about Fottes, Fermette Marbeuf, Lorraine and Marty. Any thoughts would be appreciated. This group has already done Coupole, Vaudville, Bofinger.
Stay away from the Fermette Marbeuf. My daughter & I went on the recommendation of Michelin and it was bad....overpriced, terrible service, indifferent reception. Another find from Michelin turned out really well. It's Bistrot d'olivier in the 1st. We had a 3 course "menu" (36 euros each). Delicious, different & we felt, it was (gulp!) relatively inexpensive compared w/ other Michelin recommendations.
Chez Flottes, formerly Brasserie Flottes, is a bit down scale from Bofinger, but I find the prices lower and of the same quality. Certainly much better than Vaudeville and Coupole. The duck dishes are superb, and Aligote is included with the Confit de Canard. We usually stop here for their Croque sandwiches avec frites etc. A friendly place for English speakers.
