Restaurant Astier

Map
44 Rue Jean-Pierre Timbaud, 11th Arr., Paris, 75011

Formerly a simple working-class restaurant, Astier is newly elevated thanks to new ownership and a chef who earned his stripes at Le Meurice. Three-course menus, which change every few months, feature French favorites such as foie gras with pressed leeks, guinea fowl cooked “grandmother’s way” in red wine sauce with mushrooms, and crispy seared pork with honey-glazed radishes and beets. That the dinner prix fixe menus ($39 for lunch, $47 for dinner) come with arguably the most generous cheese platter in town (more than 15 varieties, which change according to season) makes this address a favorite among budget-conscious gourmands. The original 1950’s wood paneling and flea-market finds lend the restaurant a kitschy charm, while the service is good-humored and the staff efficient and knowledgeable.
