Later, the bistro was popularized by literary greats such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Simon de Beauvoir, and Ernest Hemmingway, who sat in friendly French cafes pouring their souls onto paper and wine down their gullets. It was around the same time as the surge of jazz in Paris. Traditionally, the menus, prices, and venues are modest, but they have great character. In an age of social disconnect, there is a growing movement to preserve and protect the dying bistro culture.
Not too long ago, nearly half of all the restaurants in Paris were considered bistros. Now, these bistros of the traditional type are down to 14 percent, as more brasseries put their signs up around the city. In recent years Parisian kitchens have been stormed by revolutionaries sprinkling pepper onto chocolate mousse and throwing coffee beans into the soup. During this time, portions became smaller, and innovative recipes and fusions appeared in seductive, intimate venues.
Like a brasserie you ask? Yes: brasseries are more upmarket restaurants with white linen and fixed menus. They have Michelin stars on their menus and celebrity stars as their clientele. What if you just want a simple steak-frites or blanquette de veau veal ragout?
Is it even possible to find one of those original bistros, all minimum fuss, and maximum flavour? A traditional French joint, where the ratio of price to portion appeals to everyone and brings in a mixed clientele. Also, the bar is noisy and the food is fantastic. It isn't easy, but they are still around! Multinational fast-food chains are appearing around the city.
Top 15 Best Affordable Classic Bistros in Paris
Sharing economy startups like Ubereats, and other food delivery services, mean more people are eating at home. Moreover, sky-high rent in the French capital is pushing traditional bistros to the outskirts of the city.
That old-fashioned French bistro of yesteryear, where French mothers and wives served up huge portions of home-cooking from family kitchens, then from small cafes, is under threat. Our classic Paris bistro is standing its ground however; there are some plucky institutions firmly planted in arrondissements districts around the capital. Close your eyes, and you may even be able to hear the Russian soldiers shouting!
What's the big deal about these bistros? Food just like Maman made it! This place is a family-friendly and good value joint by Place de la Bastille.
There is also more contemporary French food on the menu. Generally, however, at the classic Bistrot du Peintre, the emphasis is on hearty and home cooking. For decades, this institution of the 11th arrondissement has been providing its loyal clientele more than simply food which is delicious.
