Au Bœuf Couronné

paris with kids

There are serious lists  by professional gluttons of the best steak frites restaurants in Paris. Au Bœuf Couronné  always makes the cut. We love it because it’s the last steakhouse in the historic Villette slaughterhouse district. It’s old-school charming inside. We’re talking stiff table linens, brass, tiles, mirrors, zinc bar, and burgundy leather banquettes. They know how to treat a cow right, and they are the last steakhouse in Paris to serve steak pommes soufflées–twice fried slices of potato that puff into salty-starchy irresistible heaven. Excellent wine list.

They take reservations. They have high chairs. Children under 6 eat free. Children 6-12 have a petit gastronome menu at the temple of meat. It’s true, even if it sounds too good.
