My friend @drbluman is headed to Paris (and Berlin) for the first time. As he's helped me get familiar with the restaurant scene here in NYC, I thought I'd ask a couple frequent Paris-goers for help in recommending places he should check out in the City of Light.
Stuff that's more toward the casual/neighborhood gem side of things as opposed to the 3-stars (not because those aren't interesting, but because there's an easily obtainable list of those.)
One I definitely wanted to check out, but didn't, was Relais Entrecote. All they do is steak frites.
@nelson - what was the name of the zinc bar we went to? That stands out for me.
