The Best Bistros in Paris

There are few people I trust more on the subject of French cuisine, and in particular the institution known as the Bistro than my friend and fellow blogger Pim. Her blog, Chez Pim, is the envy of many an epicure, filled as it is with her frequent trips to Paris and infallible knowledge of the dining scene there.

As a Christmas gift to all of us, Pim has succumbed to popular demands and posted a list of what she considers to be the best inexpensive meals in Paris. These include both her favorite Bistros, as well as some ethnic restaurants, take out places, and wine bars (YAY!).

Go pay her a visit and check them out. Then go to Paris!

Alder,

Did you mean to say you know people whose opinion on French food you trust over mine? heh.

ha ha, just kidding. I'm glad you found the list useful. And good luck on the Food Blog Award thing, you know whom my vote is for. ;-)

I found your reviews on Parisian bistros very helpful and informative. Thank you! I have one great wine shop to add: Maison des Millisimes at 137 BD Saint Germain. It`s the best wine shop I have ever been to! It has the widest range of French wines starting at 8 euros and ending at 2,000 euros per bottle! I was just amazed! Great find for real wine lovers...
