Le Suffren: "Best Bistro" Paris Restaurant Tip by duncanlbrown
Paris Restaurants: 2,594 reviews and 3,216 photos
Traditional Brasserie fare in a recently renovated but utterly charming corner spot opposite the Ecole Militaire. This is our favourite staple - every Sunday evening when we arrive back from elsewhere, every "first night" for our visitors, or just for a quiet beer which turns into two then three then four then the munchies.
Being a brasserie, there is a bar - you can stand at the bar while waiting for a table, or all night. The staff are "faux-grumpy" in the style of many Parisians. In fact they are most helpful, quick, efficient, occasionally jovial and always polite.
There is no typical customer - everyone is here. A fair amount of tourists, but often locals, families, officers from across the road, barflys, octogenarians enjoying a weekly feast and always always a madly dressed old woman with a dog on her lap (not always the same woman, mind).
Favorite Dish: Starter - Soup a l'oignon gratinee (cheesy onion soup)
Main - Confit de cuisse de canard with garlic tatties
Pudding - I don't think I've ever got this far!
Wine - 50 cl of Brouilly
Alt - the seafood platters look excellent.... and the salads for the health concious
