Le Chateaubriand is by now an essential Paris restaurant, and it’s one that you need to make time for while you’re there. The environment is casual and the reasonably priced tasting menu is seasonal and distinctly French, but also very interesting. The term some use for such a thing is “bistronomy,” but we can’t really say that out loud. You probably shouldn’t either, especially while you’re in Paris. A reservation at Chateaubriand is always recommended, as you can book for the first seating as long as you call a few weeks in advance. If that’s filled up, you’ll end up having to wait next door at their wine bar, Le Dauphin, for your table. There are worse things in life.
