Traditional French bistro in Toronto: some names?
I'm just looking around for places in Toronto which serve traditional bistro food (duck, rabbit, liver and/or kidneys, pates, terrines, sausages, charcuterie, soupe de poissons, et al).at the usual moderate prices, in pleasant surroundings (nothing fancy) but without the "put upon" Gallic expression.
So far I have Le Paradis, Le Select, Batifole, Pastis Express.
Are there others in the GTA? Let me know, and thanks in advance!!!

In my view, nothing beats Le Paradis for classic bistro nosh at modest prices. But Steak-Frites, on Yonge St. north of Lawrence Ave., does a pretty good uptown version of Le Paradis, with most of the dishes you requested, but at slightly higher prices. Somewhat fancier decor, though. And also uptown, there are two small French bistros on the same block of Mount Pleasant Rd. south of Eglinton: Simple Bistro and Mogette, both of which are pretty damn good - and cheaper than Pastis Express, which is the best of the bunch, but the most expensive as well. Definitely not what I'd call moderate.
