If you are looking for the perfect Paris dining experience that does not require a Michelin guide entry, look no further then Chez Janou in the 3ieme. Cramped, noisy, chalkboard menus and reservations required, this local Bistrot is fantastic. In warm weather try and reserve a terrace table and watch the Marais pass you by.
A provencal restaurant that serves some great signature dishes (thon provencal for example) you will be hard pressed to not find something to tempt your taste buds. We started with the moules gratin then Mrs CWG shocked the world by having magret de canard (so original…).
We went with a 2006 Chapoutier Deschants (Saint Joseph) for our wine and were not disapointed. Tasting notes were not taken but we enjoyed it to the last drop. The wine selection is Rhone heavy and should have enough choice to satisfy all budgets and tastes alike.
To finish the dinner off be sure to leave room for desert. The creme brûlée still remains the best we have ever had, but if you have room for 2 also get the chocolate mousse and try not to faint when they leave the huge bowl at your table. Overall you will get a great dinner with an experience to match.
