Offal on a Monday in Paris?

Tobelo Jul 7, 2012 07:53 PM

I will be in Paris on a Monday (and only a Monday) and was hoping to hit a restaurant that specializes in offal. I had planned on Ribouldingue but they are closed on Mondays. I was hoping for something like Viva m'boma in Brussels - and Ribouldingue sounded great. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Moisonnier in the 5th, but I'm not sure about the Monday opening.

      Chez Denise open on Monday and has always, tripe, brains, pied de porc, kidneys, andouillette and even a great steak tartar. Daily specials include tete de veau and ris de veau.Come hungry, portions enormous.

        Can anyone tell me how the tripe at Chez Denise is prepared? à l'ancienne or à la mode de Caen? Or something I haven't tried yet?

          Never noticed cider, thus assume L'ancienne. Comes in a copper pot large enough to serve 6.
          Always on menu, always inexpensive.
          Auberge Bressane has a wonderful tripe, open onMondays, that comes with a pastry dome. Slightly more highly seasoned than Chez Denise's

            Thank you for the tip on Auberge Bressane. One thing that my husband is enthused about for about our upcoming trip to Paris is the opportunity of eating well-prepared offal

              If you go to Auberge Bressane, the tripe is seasonal and goes on menu in colder weather. Call to make sure it is on the menu now 01 47 05 98 37.
              Chez Denise is always on the menu.

                Chez Denise. Rognons in mustard sauce still on my to-do list. It looked killer as served to a neighboring diner. Always a full list of innards on the menu as well as andouillette.

        Yah, Rib..... Would be it but I'd recommend Christophe and despite some negative comments I'd go with le petit marguery left bank too.
