Does anyone know if Le Bon St Pourcain has an email address?

I ate here last August 29th. Food was simple and delicious. The leeks with oeuf mollet and peanut sauce DOES work!

I’ve been going to this restaurant every single trip to Paris for more than 10 years. The traditional food was consistently good and I felt at home in the intimate atmosphere. I remember the owner and his daughter very well. I’m sorry that I won’t see them anymore. I will have to check out the new place my next visit.

Lovely article, photos…and restaurant. We ate there just once, but had a nice time. I wonder if the new owners are following the old tradition of presenting a tiny serving of house wine to each diner, for approval – and then a full-size serving.

Please tell me they have updated the toilets?
