Paris 75017: Chez Georges, classic is good!

Looking for a good restaurant with the authentic atmosphere of a real chic bistro near the Palais des Expositions de la Porte-Maillot, look no further than Chez George, just tasty classic without a catch, traditional as we know it. love. This very friendly address belongs to Georges and Bertrand Menut ( ), two brothers, talented entrepreneurs who also own the cult and starred Grande Cascade, its little sister the Auberge du Bonheur, and all located on Avenue des Ternes, Le Boeuf Maillot, La Trattoria di Bellagio, Le Ballon des Ternes. Here, the decor is in the “ Art Nouveau ” style with its antique engraved windows, its woodwork, its brass, its leather benches, its substantial silverware and its tables well coated.

In the kitchen, the delightful Stéphane Schermuly, (Chabichou Courchevel, les Crayères in Reims, la Côte Saint-Jacques in Joigny, Taillevent, la Pinède in Saint-Tropez and Tante Louise rue Boissy d'Anglas of which he was the chef until 2008 ) in place since 2009. It is not difficult to believe you are in a Georges Lautner film, with the delicious dialogues of Michel Audiard, upon entering this restaurant where Justin and Sébastien welcome you with smile. The gunslingers, these figures of French cinema, would surely have appreciated the friendly atmosphere and generous cuisine of this establishment. Lino Ventura, Bernard Blier, Francis Blanche and Jean Lefebvre could have enjoyed traditional dishes and quality wines, while exchanging scathing retorts and juicy anecdotes. What would they have chosen as entries ? Surely the country terrine with pata negra ham and mixed greens salad , the Comté terrine and smoked bacon , the egg meurette , and the tuna tartare with coriander . They would have continued with large prawns à la Provence , cod fillet, béarnaise butter with seasonal vegetables and the ultimate treat, crispy grandmother-style sweetbreads . To fix things up, the eggs with snow , the traditional crème caramel and the amber rum baba from Martinique would have changed them from : “ You have to admit… it’s du brutal ”, one of their memorable phrases.
