4Le Roi Du PotAuFeu Res­o­lutely tra­di­tional down to its red ging­ham table­cloths, the big draw of the ‘‘ King of Hot­pots’’ is the pot au feu, a stock­pot of beef, root veg­eta­bles and herbs, with the stock served as starter and the meat and veg­eta­bles as main course. It’s hearty, no-fuss nour­ish­ment, per­fect for the start of a night out (34 Rue Vignon; closed Sun­day and Au­gust; pot au feu $20). 5 Bistroy Les Pa­pilles A beau­ti­ful bistro and deli with el­e­gantly dressed tables and walls lined with wine and lo­cal pro­duce, Bistroy les Pa­pilles of­fers a qual­ity of food that en­sures its nar­row in­te­rior is packed out ev­ery night. Its mar­ket-led menu is dif­fer­ent ev­ery day and is com­ple­mented by an ex­cep­tional wine list. Try its mar­mite du marche, or ‘‘ pot of the mar­ket’’ (lespa­; 30 Rue Gay Lus­sac; closed Sun­day, Mon­day and mid-July to mid-Au­gust; four-course menus $40). 6Le Hide This tiny bistro around the cor­ner from the Arc de Tri­om­phe has won rave re­views for its tra­di­tional French cui­sine – cooked up by a Ja­panese chef.

Inside a bright, sim­ple space, Hide Kobayashi serves up dishes such as cote de veau (veal chop), epaule d’ag­neau (shoul­der of lamb) and monk­fish in le­mon but­ter, as well as a scrump­tious se­lec­tion of clas­sic desserts (; 10 Rue du Gen­eral Lan­rezac; closed Satur­day lunchtime, Sun­day, mid-May and mid-Au­gust; mains from $22).
