LWSY Paris // Benoit, 20 Rue Saint-Martin, 75004
Perhaps our most special restaurant recommendation to date, and where we celebrated our wedding breakfast (I was 8 months pregnant!) earlier this year in the upstairs private dining room, Benoit, on rue Saint-Martin, 75004.
The restaurant first opened its doors in 1912 and is now one of the last remaining authentic Parisian bistros in the city. The restaurant was sold to Alain Ducasse in April 2005 by the Petit family who had been its owners for three generations.
Benoit is the only Parisian bistro to boast a Michelin star. Just a stone’s throw from the Hôtel de ville, the Pompidou Centre and the famous Tour Saint-Jacques, Benoit has been welcoming fans of traditional French cuisine since the early XXth century.
“Chez toi Benoit, on boit, festoie, en rois”
(“Come over to Benoit’s and once you’re in you’ll drink and feast just like a king”).
Lunch menu €39 (starter + main + dessert)
