Finding a decent meal on a Sunday night in Paris can be a tough challenge, especially if one is looking for a casual and traditional dinner experience. Besides such all time favorites as Fontaine de Mars and Auberge Bressane, l’Assiette is another fantastic option. This tiny and lively out of the way venue serves classic bourgeois dishes revised by Chef David Rathgeber who spent several years with Alain Ducasse and also headed the one Michelin Starred Benoit. Tucked away in the 14th Arrondissement, about a 20 minute car ride, locals and “in the know Foodies” come for Rathgebers delicious hearty fare such as homemade foie gras, tartar of blue shrimps, fresh market vegetable stew and the excellent cassoulet maison. The ambiance is noisy, cozy and easy going featuring a dining room that combines a beautiful belle époque ceiling with these typical bistro tables without table clothes.
