Any suggestions for a comfortable & tasty meal near the Place des Vosges.

  1. Bofinger very close and expect dogs no problem there. l would stick to the plateaus.

      Petit Bofinger might be more appropriate, being less upscale. Your hotel should be able to find something in the St. Paul area. FYI, I was once seated next to a black terrier at Cafe Constant, but that is too far to walk I suspect.

        All the Paris restos that I have known are dog-friendly, unless the dog is too big and the restaurant small. For example, Souphie's huge dog always waits outside chez L'Ami Jean, but only during "rush hour". Besides, we all know that dogs behave much better than many children in restaurants.

          If only they also smelled as good.

              Your comment on dog in restaurants brought back a funny memory. Many years ago at L'Auberge de l'Ill in Illhaeusern, a foul smell kept creeping up during our dinner. I commented to my partner that though our waitress was terrific in every respect, she needed a bath. Then suddenly a small dog ran out under the next table and gave off that foul smell. It was somewhat of a relief and saved L'Auberge de I'll's reputation.

                I've had the same experience, but the smell came from a human.

      2. i thought all paris restaurants are dog friendly - unless its big,

        1. Chez Janou...friendly and lively.

          1. Robert et Louise, little comfortable, rustic spot on Rue Vielle du Temple-- medium sized so your dog will be welcome, and some of the best Cote de Boeuf in Paris. Warm and amiable staff too.

            1. Where did you wind up at. Condor?

                I ended up at Cafe de Marche on Rue de Bearn. An ok meal.
                A previous visit was at Gaspard de la Nuit which was very good.

                I will be spending another night in Paris w/c Jan 1, and have L'Ambroisie, L'Ami Louis & Beurre Noisette on my list. Any other suggestions gratefully received.

                1. re: condor

                  Robert & Louise didn't make the list?

                  1. re: menton1

                    Where does one start in Paris ?

                    Robert & Louise website does not make the menu clear which I always find a useful but not essential start to deciding.

                    Spending alot of time near Perigueux, I am not looking for foie gras, duck and gascony style cooking.

                    1. re: condor

                      Chez Paul, which I suggested in a reply to your other post, is also dog friendly.

                      1. re: Jeffo405

                        LOL! Dining at Chez Paul during one of my first meals in Paris, we sat next to a couple who repeatedly but discreetly muttered "a couché". We finally peeked under their table to find a huge but quite well mannered German Shepard.

                        Not bad food either. They have been serving roast rabbit with goat cheese and mint for decades.

                          Hmm. re you sure? I remember the very lazy but very alpha tabby holding court curled up on the counter…
                          I like the hachis parmentier there. That is, besides the alpha tabby.
