    Recommended to me years ago by the book
    "Food Lover's Guide to Paris,"

    I made a point to have dinner at Chez Rene.

    It was delicious. - I arrived when they opened (19:30) and it filled up fast.

    I'm a sucker for boeuf bourguignon & other classic traditional "comfort food" dishes.

    I had fois gras with a pastis, then the boeuf bourguignon, and fromage, with an espresso for dessert.

    This was all washed down with a bottle of the house Beaujolais per Patricia Wells' recommendation ...(perfect).

    The staff was most helpful and courteous.
    The ambience to me was very authentique, original, old-style and comfortable.

    A night to remember, and one I hope someday to repeat.How is Chez Rene today?
    Last year I received this nice note from David Leibovitz -

    "Dear David: Thanks for your message. I ate at Chez Rene about a year or so ago and the Coq au vin was (still) excellent. Prices have creeped up and lunch is a better deal. Don't know of any recent changes, but a Parisian friend who's writing a dining guide to the city asked me if it was perhaps too 'postcard Paris'... Be sure to ask about the eau de vie hidden behind the bar...although it's not for the squeemish! --David"

    Favorite Dish: Boeuf Bourguignon, and the Coq au Vin is also highly recommended, though Chez Maitre Paul not far from here has excellent Coq au Vin (also recommended by Food Lover's Guide, if you love to eat in Paris.)
