Something good a reasonablly short distance from moulin rouge

a friend is going to paris for moulin for her birthday and i was trying to help her find a great birthday dinner

i saw the thread that the food there is not good so she is relying on me to find a good place for her

she wants to keep it around 40-60 euro

looking at the map the one thing i saw that might work from my research is passage 53 - however the larger tasting menu would be a bit over her range, is the smaller tasting menu worth it or is it go big or go home here?

  1. passage 53 is not particularly close to the Moulin Rouge.
    P├ętrelle is a short walk away.

    Another nice place is chez Jean on rue Lafayette but dunno about the 40-60 euro budget. Is that with or without wine? I believe the dinner menu starts at 50 euro for a 3-course. For a onen-star, it is not bad value at all.

      40-60 euro is NOT including drinks or wine, sorry for the confusion

    2. Passage 53 has only one menu. In September, it was around 90 euros/person.

        Chez Grenouille on rue Blanche is a five minute walk. It's good and is in your budget. Very meat orientated though. Do a search on here for more information.
