What is your favorite Paris restaurant?

Le Severo
Small bistro away from the tourists. The chef used to be a butcher and the beef here is fantastic. I’d make the trip just for the fries! The wine blackboard fills a whole wall of this bistro. Looking for a truly Parisian experience? This is the place. Info: 14th/Métro Alesia Metro Alesia or Mouton-Duvernet. 8 rue des Plantes. Tel. 01/ Closed Sat, Sun. and Aug. Moderate.

Probably my all time favorite restaurant in Paris is L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon but it is so expensive! My last trip to Paris I went to Le Bistrot Paul Bert in the 11th and that's now on my list of favorites. The food was excellent, prix fixe 34E and they have an extensive wine list.

One of my new favorites is La Veraison, in the 15th. It's casual and small -- the one-man kitchen is up front, and you'll see the chef cooking as you walk in. Excellent selection of natural wines (the chef will obligingly zip out from behind the stove to help you make a selection). The food is a modern take on traditional French cooking: fresh, seasonal ingredients, simple but appealing presentation, beautifully cooked. Plus it's just fun to go somewhere that's a bit off the beaten tourist path...
