Our Favorite Restaurants in Paris: Part 3: 'The Brassierie Bofinger' in Paris

Updated: Jun 28, 2020

Here is another restaurant review by Marshall from his and Debbie's experience dining when they return to Paris (plus enjoyed while experiencing 'Tripping 1975') - The Brassierie Bofinger!

"When you get to Paris, it is only natural to see the great museums, the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur, etc. You will be exhausted when you finally get back to your hotel. The last thing you will want to do is to open your guidebooks and try to locate a good restaurant. We suggest that you pick out in advance a few restaurants that interest you. Leave a couple of nights open for that special place you discover while you are walking around. Also, when you first arrive at your hotel, contact the concierge (if you have one) and ask him/her to make the reservations for the restaurants you know you will be going to. A tip of 10 or 15 Euros will always be appreciated, and you don't have to spend any time making arrangements yourselves.

There is an excellent restaurant founded in 1864, close to the Place de Vosges and the Place de la Bastille. The Brassierie Bofinger is known for it's Belle Epoque decor as well as the food.

The address is 5 - 7 Rue de la Bastille, Paris. It is moderately expensive, but worth it. Hey, stop crying, you're the one who came to Paris. Tomorrow night you can eat at Mc Donalds. Actually, you can't. I forbid it.

When you finish your meal, take a few minutes to see how the Parisians have outlined in the pavement where the Bastille once stood.

Remember, get reservations! We hope you have a great time".
