Chez René

14 Blvd. St. Germain
Paris , France

Chez Rene, near the Sorbonne, Pont Marie, and Ile St. Louis, is a popular bistro for the rich and powerful; President Mitterand used to frequently dine with his daughter here. Lyonnais classics are served, with the beef bourguignon and the coq au vin being in particular demand. Both are served with a thick, creamy sauce made with red wine. Chez Rene looks like the quintessential Parisian bistro: crisp white tablecloths, burgundy woodwork, a zinc-covered bar, and photos of the staff from every decade since the 1950's adorning the walls.
