For a relaxed meal in a charming outdoor setting, try the reliable Bistrot de Breteuil, which overlooks the lovely, lightly trafficked Place de Breteuil in the 7th arrondissement and offers a good-value fixed price menu with numerous choices that includes an aperitif, starter, main course, dessert, coffee and a half bottle of wine per person. Consulting chef Jean-Jacques Jouteux proposes appealing dishes like artichoke heart with coddled egg and smoked salmon, beef filet with Choron sauce and fries, and Le Magnifique, a frozen Grand Marnier soufflé, for dessert. And it’s open seven days a week.

3 pl de Breteuil, 7th,, Métro: Duroc or Ségur. €42 per person with a half bottle of wine
