Chez Gramond

5 Rue de Fleurus
Paris , France

This tiny, traditional, 20-seat bistro-style restaurant in the Sixth Arrondisment, just outside the Hotel les Jardins du Luxembourg, is not just old school, it’s old world. An admitted royalist, chef Jean-Claude Gramond prepares classic French dishes without any of the accents or fusion of the modern restaurants featured in most travel guides—just dishes like fried mushrooms with parsley, roasted squab, Burgundy snails, and a Grand Marnier soufflé. Gramond’s wife Jeannine serves as hostess, waitress, and conversationalist, but will call out her husband if properly charmed.
