Café Constant is dead, long live Café Lignac! A worthy successor to monsieur Christian Constant, the TV chef Cyril Lignac has taken over the reins of this legendary spot on Rue Saint-Dominique, transforming it into the most Parisian of his restaurants. You’ll find a retro spirit that’s a cross between Claude Sautet’s films and Emily in Paris (golden crown mouldings, red velvet curtains, Thonet chairs), where you can indulge in the best of Left Bank bistro classics (with their corresponding prices): artichokes with vinaigrette, Black Angus chuck steak with black garlic, veal sweetbreads vol-au-vent, chanterelle mushroom omelets, vanilla millefeuilles… For us the night we went for lunch, served on white tablecloths: impeccable eggs mimosa; a perfect hand-cut steak tartare with golden fries; before a flavorful and deeply chocolatey soufflé. // Albertine Simonet

FEELING THIRSTY? Around 30 labels of high-born wines: a Beaujolais white from the Domaine Chaveau (€8 a glass), a Bourgeuil from Catherine and Pierre Breton (€50 a bottle), a Pauillac from the Château Dompierre (€136)…
PRICE: À la carte €39-92.
