La Maison Bleue

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The menu’s pretty standard, but this blue bistro wins us over with its quaint seaside-town feel.
If you’re after a vibe that’s more Langue d’oc beach bar than inner-city bistro, this charming restaurant near the Gare du Nord will do quite nicely. A large sun-drenched terrace, faux wooden interior and servers dressed in blue polos all contribute to its relaxing seaside-y atmosphere, while customers sit back in comfy leather seats and Maison Gatti wicker chairs, peering out onto the stunning Église Saint-Vincent-de-Paul. The two-course lunch menu (€16.50) offers a wide range of Parisian bistro classics like their Breton sardines with braised veg, a Capelin pork sausage flanked by a gorgeous potato puree, or a decent-value Caesar salad (€13.50). Desserts, meanwhile, include things like a freshly prepared cheesecake, which is decent but not outstanding.
