Situated near Montmarte in Paris’s 20th Arrondissement, Le Rez-de-Chausée is a classic neighborhood bistro. The space is warm and bright, with touch of sophistication lent by original plaster moldings and ceiling frescoes revealed by a total renovation a few years ago. The menu at Le Rez-de-Chausée features traditional cuisine of the Marcillac Valley and uses many ingredients from producers in the region. The wine list has a similar focus, with many small labels in the Marcillac, Languedoc and Gaillac areas represented. Dishes are prepared simply but with finesse and just the right touch of originality. Le Rez-de-Chausée offers daily specials, which change according to the market and the availability of fresh ingredients. Dine indoors or enjoy the terrace in fine weather, with one friend or a dozen.
