La Pharmacie

For our first Friday night back in Paris, my friends and I dined at La Pharmacie – a place Sarah has been raving about since the first day we arrived. I must applaud my friend because I’ve found (yet another) gem that must be showed off to future visiting friends. The red walls and dark wood of the restaurant embody an authentic Parisian spirit while the bright teal doorway and small details throughout reveal its roots as an old corner pharmacy.

La Pharmacie offers a limited, rotating menu full of reasonably-priced and creative dishes. My plat of salmon with a goat cheese cream sauce and potatoes ran about 19 euros while dessert cost about 8-10 euros per sweet. What you’ll find here is just as good as the overpriced bistro fare found elsewhere in the city.

If you’re looking for a charming, cozy bistrot à vins that won’t deplete your funds, scope out La Pharmacie for lunch or dinner. Did I mention the staff in English-friendly? That’s a reason to go if I’ve ever heard of one!
