Les Cocottes could certainly be one of my favourite places in Paris. They offer a great atmosphere, fantastic food and a fun concept at a fair price.
Unfortunately they don’t take any reservations, but finding a seat or two isn’t impossible. I think that we, without intention, managed to arrive just in time for the lunch rush but it wasn’t a problem at all.
Like the name indicates, everything is served in small Staub “cocottes”. It’s a fun concept that works great. The former Hotel Crillon chef Christian Constant has really hit a home-run with this restaurant, located just a few steps from the Eiffel Tower. I still dream of this place, and it’s one of the first items on my list to-do list when I arrive in Paris this January! The Bœuf bourguignon is the best I’ve ever had.

Come on spring! Just come to Paris a little bit earlier, won’t you?
I’m in love with these cast iron fences in black and gold that you’ll find all over Paris. I actually look like a part of the fence with the black clothes and the blonde hair… That was not intended when we took the picture though!
Everybody needs to take a little break every now and then…
