Looking for recos, lunch or dinner, any kind or price. Thanks...

    it's about a 15 min. walk from the Belleville metro. the only chef's tasting menu we had on our Paris visit, and one of the meals we've enjoyed the most, anywhere. simple, family-run bistro ambience, reasonable wine prices. Le Galopin.

      This has fast become one of our favorite areas. Of course there are classic Le Baratin and Melon Chapeau but also excellent newcomers Chatomat and Roseval a half dozen blocks south, and crossing the border into the 10th look for Le Galopin, Philou, Youpi et Voilla and quirky, tiny La Tête dans les Olives.

      I personally like hole-in-the-wall Raviolis Chinois Nord Est a block and a half from the Belleville metro on rue Civiale for an almost free dumpling lunch.

        Well in addition there's the Petit Cheval de Menage but must say Mangeur/Margaret my meal at Youpi et Voila [sic] was pathetic.

          Our dinner at Y et V did not measure up to the very positive reviews that took us there (Phyllis Flick and kind words from Pti), but the food was very good. Service was a bit glitchy, but nothing that got in our way of enjoying the evening. Y et V has had mixed reviews since our visit, but I would go back.

          John, I just reread your review and see that of your party of three, only you were unhappy with your choice/s. As you wrote, "Madame's fish was not 1/2-bad, however; indeed they both loved their dishes." And I looked up my notes and found a shot of my lovely bloody pigeon.

            Pigeon served to me at Youpi et Voila (And I have to admit that I adore polenta in almost any form!) :

              It's unfair but often one person's (even my) opinion overules the general impression.
