L’Ami Jean is a lively French bistro in the 7th, and it’s on the expensive side relative to the environment and what you’d expect to see price-wise at a casual bistro like this. But the food is excellent, exciting, and worth your time. The best way to do L’Ami Jean is the €80 tasting menu, finished off with their famous rice pudding, which comes in a wooden bowl with a big wooden spoon that you will be temped to use as your primary utensil. Do not resist that temptation. L’Ami Jean is popular, so make sure to book a few days in advance.
