L'Entr'Acte Restaurant Review

: Add authenticity to your visit to Le Sacré Coeur and Montmartre by stopping at L'Entr'Acte for a hearty French meal. Named and decorated after the nearby theater (entracte means intermission), L'Entr'Acte is a true neighborhood restaurant run by the Chiriaux family, who have been Montmartre locals, better known as Buttards, for some time. The grandfather and his wife, who was a postman and a painter at the beginning of the century, started nourishing the neighborhood, and they were often paid in paintings by their friends. Part of the collection is still hanging in the restaurant, almost covering the walls. The next generation opened L'Entr'Acte, a real restaurant, in 1963. It is now in the hands of their son Gilles, who assembles the huge bouquet displayed on the bar by himself every Tuesday. French bistro traditions are respected with rillettes, fresh sardines, fresh vegetables or homemade pâtés as appetizers. A daily special such as tête de veau (calf's head) is offered as well as a catch of the day from the ocean. Classics like veal scallop, beef filet or steak tartare are, of course, also available. Always order a plate of french fries, as they are definitely worth the detour. Cheese and-or homemade desserts (a slightly too heavy chocolate mousse, fruit tartes) will conclude your meal, and you won't be hungry for a while.
