As you know by now, I do not dine at *pricey restaurants in Paris. My theory is that you can get a good meal at a reasonable price almost anywhere in Paris. I prefer to save my euros for other things. I met American photographer Meredith Mullins at le Reminet for lunch in July, 2009, and since then I've returned several times and enjoyed it each time. Located on the Left Bank, it's close to Meredith's flat so she's a "regular". When you drop her name, the waiters light up! I love the décor, the mirrors made me pull out my camera.
* For most, le Reminet is a very moderately priced resto. I urge you to try it.
