I am fortunate enough to be in Paris this week with one of my best friends. I am certainly not one for queuing it up at the major attractions and was quite prepared to keep it strictly food and wine. Having said that we did a bit of exploring before our dinner reservation at the Petit Bofinger, a restaurant recommended by some friends back home.

After a good but brief tour of the city we headed to the restaurant located in the Bastille neighbourhood (4th arrondissement). Petit Bofinger is the companion restaurant of the more famous Bofinger Brasserie. It is considered to be the most beautiful brasserie in Paris and serves traditional Alsatian food. I couldn't make up my mind so ended up having three starters instead of the traditional three course meal. We were blown away by the excellent service, friendly staff and DELICIOUS food. I highly recommend this spot for a fantastic night out in Paree.

Here are a few pictures of the evening:
