La Mère Catherine
Chez la Mere Catherine restaurant high above Paris on Montmartre's Place du Tertre is one of the city's most historic eateries, founded in 1793. Remember 'Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die'? Danton wrote those words within these very walls. The term 'bistro' was coined here. Come make some history of your own at this traditional brasserie with its antiques, chequered table linens, red frontage, rustc dining rooms, terrace at the front and garden at the rear. The menu has changed over the years, but not enough to upset the clientele -- ginger grilled frogs' legs, honey confit of suckling pig, seabream with mango coulis, crepes suzette. Cabaret singers serenade you nightly with chansons of days gone by. Sit on the terrace and enjoy Montmartre's romantic village ambience.
