Great brasserie - Paris
Le Comptoir du Relais: Great brasserie

Saint Germain area, a few steps from the metro station, this lovely brasserie will definitely make you happy.
The tewnty and something tables are always full. The décor is classic French, and the service is super warm and nice.
Lots of meat dishes, but you will also find some very interesting fish and vegetables proposals. Great desserts, cheeses (of course we are in france), and a buzzling atmosphere!
The chef is quite famous. His name is Yves Camdeborde.

Le Chateaubriand: New bistro style

This place it is worth if you are looking for something out of the ordinary classic bistro cuisine. The chef is a basque guy and all the staff is very young. I liked the ambience, very lively and crowded, it keeps its original dark wood paneling and tiled floor, giving an authentic 1930’s look. People seating at the tables were all almost in their 30 something.
Food was contemporary in presentation, ingredients and taste. Nice mix of curious dishes. Unfortunately the dessert didn't match up with the rest of the menu. If I have to notice something there was sometimes too much use of foams.
