Members of my party have developed a hankering for some classic French dishes, in particular, frisee salad with lardons and ouefs en gelee. Can anyone suggest good places to go for those in central Paris?

What a bashful bunch here. OK, I'll take the dare.

While I've had plus/minus meals there, the best salad frisee I've ever had was at Aux Lyonnais. As for other classics, how about Chez Georges, Quincy or Bofinger or updated classics at the Repaire de Cartouche.

La Fontaine de Mars, le Gourmet des Ternes have stuff like poireaux vinaigrette. Chaumette rue Gros has suprising version of oeufs mayo stuffed with mushrooms and parsley. Chez George le jeu du mail, chez Adrienne are places for traditional entrées (French sense). L'Auberge Bressane does poulet aux morilles and crepes suzette.

Thanks John for daring and giving me the strength.

Very subjective but:

Salade frisée aux lardons oeuf pochée=Chez Georges in the 2nd

Cassoulet (Montauban style)=Violon d'Ingres

joue de cochon=Bistro Canaille in the 9th

grilled turbot, beurre Nantais=La Grille in the 10th.
