As our readers will know, John and I love a family-run restaurant. Our hosts in Paris know this too and they recommended Le Bougnat in the Haut-Marais.
We found it on the rue de Saintonge just off the rue de Bretagne.
To call this tiny eatery charming would be an understatement.
We were obviously the very last of the lunch crowd.
Our waitress recommended the roast beef with frites and a pichet of Faugères red wine.
The proof is in John's grin.
Of course we finished with espressos and a piece of dark chocolate.
We love new discoveries.
We were all smiles as the lady of the house rang up our bill.
