Du Pied de Fouet

This no-reservation, no-nonsense mom-and-pop-style bistro stands in stark contrast to most of the touristy and overpriced 7th Arrondissement, where you’ll find the iconic Eiffel Tower, the Bon Marché, and plenty of expensive eateries flaunting the most gourmet expressions of trendy ingredients. Refreshingly, Du Pied de Fouet presents a back-to-basics approach of homestyle bistro cooking with a small menu featuring a handful of entrées (the duck confit is a common favorite), roughly a dozen starters that can double as sides, and a nice selection of cheeses and desserts. Most surprisingly of all, plenty of these menu items are under €5, including 10 of the wines by the glass.


Monday through Saturday: Noon to 2:30 p.m.; 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.


Budget ($)

Andy’s Notes:

You should plan to stand in line a bit before securing a table at Du Pied de Fouet, but you can also try its second location in the nearby 6th Arrondissement (3 Rue Saint Benoit) if the wait seems unbearably long.
