French Wines: Château le Coteau 2008

My love affair with French wines began with Bordeaux. Having swallowed enough boxed pink plonk in college, I eventually graduated to supermarket screw-cap wines. When I began my Wall Street career […]

French Recipes: Sautéed Steak with Balsamic Vinegar Reduction

Valentine’s Day can often lead to forced gestures for those not so versed in the romance department. We can blame Hallmark or consumerism for the dread some fear when this holiday approaches. Luckily Parisian […]

If you’re craving steak with all the French trimmings served in a bustling bistro atmosphere, the 11th Arrondissement Paris restaurant Chez Paul delivers on all accounts

Paris Restaurants: Chez Paul

The weather has long since turned in Paris, and the cool, crisp air is now the norm. Instead of fighting winter’s fury, I’m trying to embrace it, and there’s no better way to warm up than to take my pick of Paris restaurants and wedge into a crowded bistro for some homestyle French specialties.

Walking into Chez Paul on a recent Saturday night, I was greeted with the exact bistro experience I was craving.

Summer Flavors in Paris Restaurants, Part Two

Earlier this season we suggested some wine and food pairings based on what we were seeing in Paris restaurants. The sun is shining, and we are all trying to eat lighter fare so we can squeeze into those swimsuits. But duck, pork, steak, burgers and foie gras remain on the menus in Paris no matter the time of year—it’s all a matter of finding a more seasonal way to enjoy them.

Duck confit with grilled potato rounds and salad at Aux Tonneaux des Halles, a classic spot for steak frites in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris

Aux Tonneaux des Halles

There is no shortage of Paris restaurants serving steak frites. You can find the dish on many menus, and everyone claims to have a favorite, from the all-you-can-eat steak frites at Le Relais de l’Entrecôte to the beef aged to perfection at Le Severo. I’ve eaten my share of this delicious red-meat-and-potato combo in Paris, but I recently learned of an old (but new to me) top-notch steak frites spot called Aux Tonneaux des Halles, and I had to check it out.

Rump steak and faux filet at Le Severo, a Paris bistro in the 14th Arrondissement that specializes in steak frites

Le Severo

When people ask me where to go for steak frites, Le Severo is where I send them. This Paris bistro, in a quiet residential area of the 14th Arrondissement, is run by William Bernet, a former butcher who honors the quality of his steaks by cooking them very well.

Steak frites at Le Relais de l'Entrecôte, which dishes out delish steak and fries to locals and tourists alike in locations all over Paris

Le Relais de l’Entrecôte

“Quelle cuisson?” (“How do you want your steak cooked?”) is the only question they ask at Le Relais de l’Entrecôte, which I would call a mill if I didn’t like it so much. Oh, who am I kidding. It’s totally a mill. And I love it.

Le Relais de l’Entrecôte belongs to a group that has three Paris addresses, plus outposts in Geneva and (sigh) Dubai, that serve nothing but steak and fries. I’m still not sure if it’s a Paris restaurant or a Paris-themed restaurant, but I’m also not sure I care.

Charbon Rouge

Here’s an address for steak frites with South American style. Sure, you can have béarnaise sauce with your steak at Charbon Rouge, but one look at the menu and you’ll know that this isn’t a classic French steakhouse.
