Diners come from all over Paris, as well as across the channel (via the nearby Eurostar train hub at Gare du Nord), to sample Thierry Breton’s superb cooking at affordable prices that have barely budged in a decade. A native of Brittany, Breton improvises on recipes from back home, including lots of seafood dishes like kaotriade, a Breton (“Breton” means from Brittany, by the way) fish stew, and fresh crab salad. For dessert, try the copious rice pudding or the awe-inspiring Paris-Brest (a choux pastry filled with praline cream).
