They’re open every day (lunch only on Sunday), and you don’t need to book weeks in advance. You’ll find Astier included among our Favorite Paris Bistros.

  1. This was on our list of places to visit, and indeed we walked by the joint a couple of times and peered in. Very nice, and a warm welcome, with — oops — American English chatter all around. There goes the neighborhood. We found the fare rather ordinary, including two of the signature items: the spicy prawns (3, small) with stuffed onion, tomato and zucchini, and the oeuf custard pot de creme dessert. The real deal was the “all-you-can-eat” cheese board, depleted by the time it got to our table. It had 10 or more selections, but the waiter could identify only two with any certainty. A very persistent mosca domestica was all over the Cantalet. Advice for a return visit: select a plat du jour, take the cheese course (12E), and order a nice wine.
