Le Reminet - un Paris bistrot


With so many options to dine in Paris, how do you find a great, reasonable meal?
Certainly, you should check internet reviews, but I would offer that reading blogger favorites may be a good place to start.  In June of 2010, Virginia (Paris Through My Lens) introduced me to Le Reminet.  She had met Meredith Mullins for déjeuner at Le Reminet at Meredith's suggestion.  The prices are quite reasonable at lunch if you guard your wine consumption and select from la formule.  The meals have been excellent and the friends I have sent there agree.  Often I enjoy a bit of a splurge at lunch and have just a light salad or baguette et fromage for dinner. 

Le Reminet has a lovely aubergine-colored entrance, a charming ambiance,
and it is situated on a narrow street in the 5ième near Notre Dame.

I think some of the ingredients for a great dinner are the atmosphere, the place, the decoration. This place of your photo has all of them.

«Louis» wishes that he had known of Le Reminet when he lived in Paris. He was on the other side of Nôtre Dame in the 4 ème.

This is an absolutely perfect shot Genie!!! You'd best get yourself a nice big print and get on over there and sell it to them for their advertising!!!

I have created a map for my visit next May. And this is one of the first places I have added. Between you and Peter, I keep seeing things I want to weave into my stay, and the Google map becomes mandatory.
