Too late for game? Returning to Paris 23 Jan to 5 Feb
My wife and I will be returning to Paris the end of Jan. for a couple of weeks. Will we be to late to have any game that is in season? If not where would you recommend? We have been to La Biche au Bois in the fall but never this early in the year. Thanks in advance.
You may be lucky, the seasons for game vary across France as they are controlled by the regional governments. Many will end by late January but some will carry over until the end of Feb. It obviously depends on what you want to eat, as the season for small game (birds etc) is shorter, whilst large game like deer is longer. Obviously some is also frozen so could still be available out of season.
I've gotten biche at BauB very late and all sorts of stuff at Petit M as stated above. Also while under-reviewed, the bistrot Volnay.has much game now and maybe onwards.
