La Rotonde is Our Go To Neighborhood Brasserie Frequented by Ghosts of Hemingway

La Rotonde has become our go to brasserie in the neighborhood. Their terrace is perfect in the summer. So is their menu.  Their Tomato Carpaccio is out of this world.  So is their Œufs Cocotte (BIO)  à la crème de morilles.  Our son's favorite is the Cote de boef avec morilles, avec riz. Since 1911, la Rotonde has become a…read more

La Ferrandaise – 8, rue de Vaugirard

Okay, I feel ashamed I don't even know this one, but I guess now we'll have to try it, seeing as it is supposedly just a few feet from chez nous. Actually, on the map, numéro 8 is down a bit, just a few meters short of the 5th, where the rue de Vaugirard gets lively near the Boul' Mich. La Ferrandaise—located near the Sorbonne and frequented by scholarly types, this neighborhood bistro has a charming, effortless appeal. ... I had a pate, boeuf bourguignon, and a chestnut soufflé and could not eat again that day. La Ferrandaise, 8, rue de Vaugirard [From Family of One: Family of One Dines in Paris 2010 ]

John Talbott’s Paris: Le Marcab – 255 rue de Vaugirard

A pithy review by John Talbott on a restaurant that sounds a lot closer than it is. ... Le Marcab, 225, rue de Vaugirard in the 15th, 01.43.06.51.66, open 7/7, has a set of menus for 16, 25 and 35 €, plus a la carte items. We have friends who live a short walk from it and invited them to joing us today. Three of them had the 4 course forced choice "menu" for 25 E which is a real bargain and I had the 35 E 3-course one. [From John Talbott's Paris: Le Marcab in the 15th; still very nice.
