Le Grand Bistrot: Fondue in the 5th

On our last night in Paris we ate fondue again, it's always been a favorite of mine and my niece had never had it before so it was a novel cuisine for her. On the maze of streets in this section of the Latin Quarter there is no lack of places to try fondue or raclette or a tartiflette and it was early so my usual idea of a place looking busy wasn't even working. So we finally just picked one, the prices from place to place were within a couple of euro of each other so I knocked out the 17€ per person places and settled on Le Grand Bistrot.

The interior is decorated with a lot of stuffed heads, I suppose the décor was aiming for ski chalet or hunting lodge.

Favorite Dish We ordered the fondue savoyarde for two, it came with a salad, roast potatoes and a slice of some kind of meat that neither of us ate along with bread for dipping. While not the best fondue I've ever had, it certainly was good and left both of us happy
