Where can I find good coq au vin in Paris?

Hi fellow chowhounders,

My visitors next week requested specifically for coq au vin and I can't seem to find much information on chowhound and elsewhere on where to bring them! The only coq au vin we've had since March was at a la biche au bois, which was a good deal but we only found the rest of the meal besides the chicken and the cheese plate so-so. Would really appreciate some solid recommendations, thanks!

    I don't know a single place that has it on the menu on a regular basis. My advice is to chose a good traditional place and ask them in advance (L'Auberge du Quincy, l'Assiette, L'Auberge du 15 strike me as places likely to accomodate this request, but I wouldn't guarantee it).

      Thanks souphie for your recommendations. Unfortunately they are either not open on Saturday night or do not have the dish. I've found some favorable reviews about the coq au vin at Auberge de Bressane and will likely try that place. Hopefully it will meet my guests' expectations!
