(Quickie) Simple bistro near the Rex Club....

For a couple of friends who are going to Paris a a couple of weeks and will go out to "Le Rex" (Boulevard de la Poissonnière).

A quick google returns "Frenchie", anything else.

(one of the 2 does not eat fish/seafood).

  1. Derya on rue faubourg St Denis is a quite reliable quickie simple bistro. 6 minute walk from Rex according to Google. Extensive menu, quite meat-focused.

      I don't know Derya but have frequently entrusted my palate to Parigi with excellent results and this is her quartier. Another place that I do know and like which is also an easy walk from the Rex Club is l'Office at the corner of Richer and Faub. Poissonniere.

    2. I thought of l'Office too, which may not be a quickie option. However, the l'Office "bis", or Le Richer, (n°2 rue Richer) is good and casual and not time-consuming.

        Parigi, I still love you, but L'Office bis is not L'Office. I counsel Max's friends to go to the old original and tell them they're pressed.

      2. Thanks all,

        I have passed the suggestions to my friends.
