L'Auvergne Gourmande: "Don't miss the Charcuterie platters" Paris Restaurant Tip by thinking

Paris Restaurants: 2,594 reviews and 3,216 photos

La Fontaine de Mars has been in all the guidebooks for years, and is surely a destination worth visiting, but this annex is a real treat.  If you are looking for a way to meet some new people, practice your French and try out a variety of ever-changing menu items, you've come to the right place.  L'Auvergne is a "table d' hote" or communal dining bistro?guests sit all together at one long dining table.  While the concept is relatively new in France, the "table d' hote" is gaining in popularity just as much as speed dating.  The atmosphere is cozy, the service on target and the traditional, but not always classic, French cooking is superb.  You'll find soups, charcuterie platters, several choices of beef, and many delectable desserts on a simple menu with daily specials that can't be beat.  Don't miss out on such a superb combination.

Favorite Dish: French cooking is superb. Try the daily specials.
