      What about a really good Saturday lunch?

    2. Also looking for a good Monday lunch near the Louvre that doesn't require a jacket and tie?

        No place requires a jacket and tie in Paris. Try Pierre au Palais Royal.

        1. re: Ptipois

          Interesting that Pierre au Palais Royal is mentioned. I remembered how much I enjoyed eating there in the early/mid 80s. Classic bistro food and wonderful service. Then it changed owner and sort of drop off the map. I would love to know more about current the food and service.

        2. re: pigfish

          Chez Denise, Rue Prouvaires, at Les Halles, about 3 blocks down Rue St Honore. from Rue Louvre. Reserv are a good idea.

            Do not skip Poliane for apple tarts. They are so crisp and flaky they nearly fall apart when you take a bite. Just perfect.

            I wish I knew the name of the bistro where I had the best Duck Confit and potatoes grilled in goose fat. After that I was eating Duck Confit in various places but nothing compared to the place I wandered into near Les Halles back in some alley. I keep thinking it was call Espices but next time I'll take a notebook.
