Best sweetbreads in Paris?
I'm looking for a down-home bistro that just happens to serve incredible sweetbreads. I know I've read they're everywhere in Paris, but when I look at menus, I don't see them very often. Any suggestions would be most welcome!
We had wonderful sweetbreads (ris de veau) Friday for lunch at Philou in the 10th near Canal St Martin. I don't know how often the menu changes. Also saw them on the menu (and at a neighboring table) at Chez L'Ami Jean last night with lamb sweetbreads on the degustion menu.
Chez l'ami Jean and Le Barratin are two places where I had great sweetbreads.
Don't know if they're the best in Paris though (how would I ?)
Claude Colliot makes great sweetbreads, not everyday though - it might be a good idea to check at reservation.
What is this Groundhog Day?:
I'm avoiding naming the "best of" this year and for some reason this year (2014) everyone seems to be doing sweetbreads and I haven't had an overcooked one yet. Among my favorite places were Kigawa (don't tell a soul, because CH, the NYT and the FT haven't found it yet), Belhara and Le Lulli - without forgetting, as Figaro says - the Table d'Eugenie (not Eugene), Christophe and Les Degres......etc.
