6.0 Le Grand Bistrot de Breteuil in the 7th, 01.45.67.07.27 (Metro: Ummm Pasteur), open 7/7, is a place I have a special fondness for, since it's where Colette and I signed the power of attorney over to a dear French friend, some 22 years ago to buy our first Paris flat, some 22 years ago. Then and now it had a "menu unique" with an apero, 3 courses, 1/2 bottle of wine and coffee for a reasonable price (today 42 E). Why did I return? Because every 10 years they get a face-lift and I'd read about the newest one and thought - every decade one should go.
My dining partner and I have been sharing our courses 50-50 recently and it works pretty well - today we started with artichokes poivrade and rougets with chorizo - both of which had a hefty (good) kick to their sauces.
Then we split the scallops and wild sole (which were not over-cooked and rubbery as too often happens in Paris) as well as sides of spinach and Joel Thiebault veggies (which frankly could have come from Monoprix we agreed).
For finales we had the millefeuille and crepes, which were, rather standard.
With a bottle of blurry Bordeaux, incredibly bad rolls for a place that has products from celebrated sources - Thiebault/Desnoyers/Poujaran/Bordier/Cantin/etc., OK coffee and a soiled table cloth redeemed by a cool water pitcher for unbottled water, our bill ended up at 90 E.
Go? Short answer, en famille and for good chow as reasonable prices, indeed. My culinary-expert guest said that I must do essays on places with various price points (the 6 Paul Bert and the Bistrot de Breteuil being about the same (80-90 E) as yesterday's disaster at the Royal Turenne and places to take kids and old folks to (here) and I'll put it on my life list.
