Le Resto restaurant – the touch of old Paris

If you ever find yourself in Paris, make sure to visit a small restaurant called Le Resto. Paris is well known for the high-quality food and beverages, and here you can find some of the most expensive restaurants in the world. Personally, I’m not a fan of fancy restaurants, even though they can deliver great food. It’s better to use that money and explore the diversity of cuisine though small diners. But, from time to time, you can make an exception and visit some place that represents a symbol of state or city you are visiting.

Every time I went to Paris, I visited Le Resto restaurant. It is located near to the Pantheon (5th), and it has typical Old Paris settings, which got me hooked in the first place. Exposed beams and stonework provide warm and intimate atmosphere, whether you are dining alone or with someone. This entire establishment invites people to discover a variety of meals and every day new recipes are made. Patrons have a chance to choose between four entrees, four main dishes, and four desserts. Le Resto is kind of restaurant that wants to have regular guests, and they want to make you feel like at home. At least that was my experience.

pastaThe staff is very friendly and welcoming, ready to assist you with any requirements. Considering I don’t speak French, one of the waiters politely explained me the meaning of the dishes and helped me make my decision. This restaurant isn’t cheap, but it’s not overly expensive as well, it falls into a mid – range category. An average price for two – course meal is around $45. In Le Resto, you will have an opportunity to try a genuine French cuisine, so it would be a shame to waste it.

They accept all terms of payment, so don’t worry about their currency Euro. A great thing about this restaurant is that it’s pet-friendly, it’s English spoken, and you have a chance to use a free Wi-Fi. The maximum number of guest, one table can accept, is six, if you want to have a private setting.

Top three budget friendly restaurants in the U.S.

Ben’s Chili Bow – this restaurant is a true light of Washington, D.C. A neighborhood place, where patrons get the real sense of food and taste delicious meals. Ben’s was founded in 1958 and since then, it has attracted a lot of locals and celebrities with its famous dishes. The dish that made this restaurant famous was chili, so if you ever had a chance to try their chili, do pass out that opportunity. Take my word on it; it tastes like out of this world. The great thing about Ben’s is that it has food for everyone’s tastes buds.

Big Star – if you are a fan of tacos, then Big Star in Chicago will blow your mind away. If you are keen on visiting this restaurant, I would advise you to go early because you will likely to experience some waiting time, especially during summer months. Casual settings and friendly personnel will make this visit even better. The Chef Paul Kahan does wonders, and he won’t leave disappointed. Depending on your preferences, you can enjoy tacos, or have margaritas, which are so delicious but can make you seriously boozy. If you ever visit this restaurant, you will have a chance to try real and authentic Mexican food.

BollywoodBollywood Theater – we all know that Indian food is too spicy and sometimes bad for the stomach, but chef and owner of Bollywood Theater, Troy MacLarty, found a way to bypass that. This is one of the most visited and most popular restaurants in Portland. Considering the number of people visiting Bollywood Theater, you would expect the high prices of the meals, but you can have a lunch for less than $10.  The entire setting is adjusted to Indian culture, and you can see screen playing favorite movies from Bollywood production. This restaurant is a nice way to spend your time if you ever find yourself in Portland.

Bococarte restaurant – review

France has always been my go – to country. Whether I am traveling the world, or I need a change of settings, France somehow finds its way to my schedule. I love tasting French food and drinking French wines. There is something about the way French people serve the food, every time I dig in; I feel sorry for disrupting the perfect harmony on the plate. This time I’ve decided to review another French restaurant that has become my favorite place to dine. It’s called Bococarte, and it’s a great place with a bit modern setting.

The owners are Vincent and Simon, who are raised in a traditional French culinary family. Their father thought them culinary skills and they now have one obsession, to make food which is healthy, but still tasty. For a short amount of time, they have managed to create a respectful establishment, with the help of greatest French chefs and pastry chefs. The great thing about this restaurant you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a beautiful and enjoyable meal. It’s all about finding and recognizing the right place. The Bococarte restaurant has several branches across the Europe, you can find them in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxemburg, and Monaco.

salmonSo, let’s talk about food, which is the main reason why you should visit this restaurant. The meal prices are from four to nine euros, which is not that expensive. You get to choose the variety of ingredients, and all of them are prepared in a health – conscious manner. You have starters, main courses, and desserts. An average lunch can cost you between 20 and 25 euros, which is quite affordable for French cuisine. The only downside is that portions are bit smaller, but that’s a case with almost all French restaurants. French people are very health – conscious and their diet is rich in vegetables.

Bococarte also does home deliveries and covers all your important events. You can celebrate your birthdays here, have business lunches, and also have a private time with your friends and family. This restaurant will provide you a great time and delicious food.
