Dinner in Paris: Le Petit Riche

On our first night in Paris , I decided to taking my boyfriend for a real french food dinner. Who better than my dad could tell us where to go !  My dear dad recommended "Au Petit Riche", a really old french brasserie, with authentic french food.
Now here is a daring little restaurant… Au Petit Riche has been seen on the corner of the rue Le Peletier and the rue Rossini since… 1854!
The passing years have brought a series of events, fires and architectural novelties, but this establishment is still here, allowing a chic bistro tradition to live on!

Coachmen, stage hands and Opera employees have left, and the restaurant is now home to the many regulars of this business neighbourhood. Not far from the Grands Boulevards, Au Petit Riche now attracts bourgeois customers, politicians, actors, Opera dansers, the Drouot people, bankers…

The décor is warm and friendly, a series of very welcoming small dining rooms, where brass and velvet dominate, with engraved mirrors and hat racks.
The service is also traditional, and the memories of Maurice Chevalier and Mistinguett set the tone for a festive restaurant where you can come late and be served after-show dinner!
The Chef has worked here for twenty years now, and he wished to compose an ideal gourmet menu that would be a discovery of his specialties, with many choices and surprises for demanding taste buds… A very good idea at Au Petit Riche! 

I decided to take initiatives (as always! Well I am a french women , can do you expect !) and ordered for us both! 

 When you live in Asia , a TRUE French baguette is so deeply missed! Well, except if you go to Robuchon ! This bread was fresh out of the oven ! So good and crispy.

 For starter I took a  half lobster salad  and tomato with with vegetable remoulade (22.9 euros)

 Marinated Salmon with dill 13.4 euros

Poached haddock with seafood and butter sauce (18.8 euros)

 Beef tartare served with salad and french fries (18.8 euros)

 Cheese platter (10.2 euros)
