Where exactly will you be, in the 18th? There's a nice wine bar called La Petit Syrah, not far away from rue Lepic and les Abbesses. I one had some great spanish charcuteries -- don't order anything else, I remember food was otherwise really average. But the wine list is definitely great.

Good to know. I stay in the 18th when I visit Paris (Ermitage Hotel on rue Lamarck) and always like to have something local and recommended to add to my list.

Thanks - sounds good.

Don't know exactly where yet. Was told we could use Metro Abesses, Pigalle or Anvers. :hmmm: And thanks for your suggestions.

Great: the three subway stations are really close to each other. Rue Houdon, I guess, when you come from Pigalle, another bistrot with lots of wine: chez Grisette. I've been there many times, and always loved their charcuterie and cheese plates. Honestly, the rest is quite average, though not bad.

An old fashion Montmartre bistro, next to a theatre on place Charles Dullin: l'Entracte. Classic french fare with great fries, 35 to 45€ more or less. The place is quite small.

La Mascotte, on the rue des abbesses, if you're looking for a classic

brasserie with great oysters.

Do you need more, MMerrill?

Just up the hill from the Abbesses Metro are two on Trois Freres; La Famille, loved by me the first time and I believe by F Simon and S Demorand still and Dan Bau, a one heart only in Figaroscope Sept 24; a Vietnamese place at 18, rue des Trois-Frères which has menus at 9.5 E (lunch) and 19.5 where I have not eaten.

chez Grisette. I've been there many times, and always loved their charcuterie and cheese plates. Honestly, the rest is quite average, though not bad.

I defer to Zouave on Chez Grisette and agree with him wholeheartedly on Montmartre restaurants in general. Caution about l'Entracte, as he says it is small and it features "boys' food"; addition, La Mascotte is one of "Amelie's" places, charming and not bad.

I still think 2 pieces cuisine, just a bit down the hill (to the North along the route St. Denis walked carrying his head), is a better bet.

Again, many thanks! I think we have plenty of options to choose from - which will be fun.
