La Régalade Saint-Honoré
Chef Bruno Doucet purchased one of the city’s most beloved bistros, La Régalade, from pioneering chef Yves Camdeborde in 2004, and soon after opened a second, more central location, near the Louvre. The Saint-Honoré outpost is a modern, minimally decorated room—cement floors, white walls—and the food is an incredible value for the glamorous Right Bank address. The 33 euro menu often starts with a pork terrine, served all-you-can-eat style from a casserole, while starters and mains upgrade rustic comfort food, like an extra-smoky boeuf bourguignon and pork belly with lentils.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
