Reviews of Interest

The Gannet (2015) “Le Bon Georges is more traditional than the other newcomers on the Paris restaurant scene and the cuisine is closer to traditional French cooking, with an accent on well-sourced ingredients. On a recent visit, I was wowed when the chef remastered the classic oeufs mimosa, chopping the egg white then setting a barely poached egg yolk on top. It was served with some bonito (tuna) flakes and a generous dollop (and stripe) of Dijon mustard sauce, which gave it a lively kick.”

David Lebovitz (2015) “The emergence of Le Bon Georges… makes it clear that people still hunger for the classic Parisian bistro. And for good, honest food prepared by a staff that cares. Owner Benoît Duval-Arnould has managed to reinvigorate the Parisian bistro, making it relevant to today by carefully sourcing his ingredients from the best French producers.”

The Wall Street Journal (2015) “A post-card-pretty, traditional-style bistro in the 9th arrondissement… The menu at the very popular Le Bon Georges changes almost daily but runs to homey, carefully cooked dishes such as rabbit stewed with prunes, roasted rack of baby lamb and butter-braised yellow pollock with roasted baby leeks. The côte du boeuf Polmard, or rib-steak for two, has to be reserved in advance.”

Alexander Lobrano (2014) “Pretty much perfect neighborhood bistro… good, solid, simple food.”

L’Express (2014) “Un vrai bon plan… Le Bon Georges, le bistrot qui a (presque) tout bon!”

Table à Découvert (2014) “L’œuf poché et sa blanquette de légumes. Pas très généreuse la blanquette me dis-je en voyant arriver l’assiette. C’était avant de goûter… Au premier coup de cuillère, j’étais encore plus frustrée. L’œuf délicat et sa note maîtrisée de vinaigre, le crémeux de la liaison, son goût presque sucré par les légumes, les divers légumes en coupés en brunoise et la verdeur du persil plat ciselé créaient une synergie extra.”

John Talbott (2014) “Really cool, really old, really friendly joint… right now this stands Number 3 on my Great Hits List for 2014.”

Le Figaro (2014) “Un bistrot bien campé dans le parigot entre sérieux répertoire comptoir et fameux bagout viandard (notamment un fameux bœuf de chez Polmard).”

1 Comment on Le Bon Georges

  1. Cuisine: Delicious pavé de boeuf, succulent venison.
    Wine: good quality but they never served what was advertised. 2012 Colliuire becomes 2013… a Luberon 2010 in fact is a Luberon 2012. “Mais le gout est pareil Monsieur, est c’est le meme prix!”
    The young waiter, with a real attitude problem, treated us like dumb tourists…
