Restaurants in Paris

Please let me know if anyone has been in Paris this year and has eaten at Vagenende 142 Boulevard Saint-Germain and at Brasserie Bouillon Racine at 3 Rue Racine. I am staying in Paris for five nights and want to have a few restaurants to know about before going to Paris. As I know restaurants book up and many are very small so seating is limited. Trying to find really nice places to have dinner after a long day of sightseeing. Thank you.

Besides asking here, you might try asking at your hotel. They would have local knowledge of fine dining establishments in the area.

Thanks, I was just asking if anyone has eaten at Vagenende or Brasserie Bouillon Racine as they both look very nice. I guess you have not eaten at either restaurant. But thanks for advice.

Hi Ann - you might get more answers if you put this in the France trip forum. The France Reviews space is for people who've BEEN to france and want to share insights/sites/tips etc with others.

(Although I don't know if you'll get anyone having gone to your specific restaurants. I presume you've checked TripAdvisor and ChowHound and are looking for additional input?)

For restaurants in Paris, in addition to Trip Advisor--check Paris by Mouth and lefooding.com (both I heard about on a RS podcast :))

This is the listing for the second spot in Rick's Paris guidebook:

[$$] Brasserie Bouillon Racine takes you back to 1906 with an Art Nouveau carnival of carved wood, stained glass, and old-time lights reflected in beveled mirrors. The over-the-top decor and energetic waiters give it an inviting conviviality. Check upstairs before choosing a table. Their roast suckling pig (€20) is a house favorite. There’s Belgian beer on tap and a fascinating history on the menu (€18-25 plats, €32 menu, a few fish options and lots of meat, daily, serves nonstop between lunch and dinner, 3 Rue Racine, tel. 01 44 32 15 60, www.bouillon-racine.com).

It's not undiscovered; see also Trip Advisor.

Yes, I read the RS book and yes I looked up the restaurant in Yelp and Trip Advisor. Just wandering if anyone has been to this restaurant this year. I guess not according to the responses I have received. Thanks all, just hoping someone will respond that has been to either one of the restaurants.
