Sitting pretty on the eastern side of the Sacré-Coeur, Chéri Bibi has become the unofficial canteen for the young and artsy Montmartre crowd. The affordable fixed-price two- or three-course menu features classic French fare with modern touches, like a tender flank steak with homemade chutney or beef stew with coriander. The decor is understated hip, with flea-market chairs and exposed stone walls. The crowd gathered around the restaurant’s zinc bar sipping wine sometimes spills out onto the sidewalk on a warm night. Open only in the evenings.
