      And your question is What are the "Best bistros in Paris?"
      Have you searched on CH?

      There can be literally hundreds of "best bistros" in Paris. Do you have more criteria to narrow the list down?

        Best would imply that anyone has visited them all....and that anyone else's definition of "best" magically aligns with everyone else's.

            Dead on. There ain't no such thing as "best."

            Favorites - on the other hand................

              You post should be on every page of Chowhound.

            The best bistro is the one where your hunger will perfectly align with the quantity of food served, where your expectations will ever so slightly be surpassed, where your company will be of a particularly good mood, and the ambiance will allow for this mood to thrive during the meal.

            I really wish you find this bistro, but as I cannot read the future in the stars, I can't tell you for sure where and when they will align for you.

              **brilliant** -- required reading for anyone visiting Paris (and extends to coffee, croissants, baguettes, confit de canard, etc., etc., etc.)
