Fave bistros or brasseries in St Germain neighborhood?

We are a group of 4 NYers in Paris for the week and looking for good, affordable bistros or brasseries in the St. Germain area. If anyone has any suggestions, please respond. Thanks!

          I often stay at a hotel down the street from Pizza Chic and yet, I have never tried it. Is it good? I really don't think of pizza in Paris, but it could be a nice change of pace. How does it compare to good New York pizza or Mozza in LA?

            American pizza is a thing of its own. If I had a choice between Modern in New Haven and Pizza chic I don't know what I would chose, probably Modern. Pizza chic is good and expensive.

              New Haven has the best pizza in the world. Must go...

        2. La Ferme Saint-Simon, 6 rue de Saint-Simon, phone: 01 45 48 35 74
 you will love it!

          1. Fantastic! Thanks, everyone.
