Dinner near the Ritz

Recommended Posts

I'm here in Paris and want to have a drink on Monday night at the Ritz. Can anyone recommend a restaurant (hopefully close enough to walk to) near the Ritz. Something French, a brasserie? Thank you!

If you want to stay in the neighborhood you could walk to the marché Saint Honoré where you will find Caroline Rostang's L'Absinthe. Or for Corsican, that gets very good reviews, there is A Casa Luna.

I had a very good meal at le Gallopin, a beautiful brasserie with traditional French cooking which is only a few blocks away, however John was disappointed (Pudlo, however, gave it a coup de coeur last year). www.brasseriegallopin.com. And there is le Vaudeville, which is a Flo brasserie meaning that the food isn't spectacular but the setting normally is.

Has anyone been to Le Dauphin, that's in the neighborhood as well but I haven't been.

Just across the street is Le Castglione, on St. Honore, more like an upscale cafe but with surprisingly good food. Their Dover sole was excellent. A few blocks away on Mont-Thabor is Le Souffle; try the three course souffle dinner...memorable.

Drouant is within walking distance.

I'd second Drouant but think Alice Bardet's Point Bar is infinitely better than l'Absinthe if you're eating around the Marche; also I like Pinxo + Le Meurice for very different reasons.
