Loiseau Rive Gauche Restaurant Review

: The late Bernard Loiseau's second bistro at the Place du Palais Bourbon is a chic dining option with wood paneling and white tablecloths. Fine ingredients are suggested on the menu, such as pan-seared foie gras, roasted John Dory and calf sweetbread. What's special about the venue is the addition of two separate rooms for those rare smokers of Havana cigars. Wines like Sauvignon from Saint-Bris and Hautes-Côtes de Beaune are also served. Set menus from €39 at lunch to €65 and €85 at dinner.
