Paris, France (Gastrosofie). In the film “Inglourious Basterds”, the Bistro la Renaissance became famous far beyond its Parisian fame, because a scene takes place there and not elsewhere.
And why did the filmmakers around Quentin Tarantino choose this bistro and no other? Because the Bistrot la Renaissance north of Montmartre on Rue Championnet is so beautifully authentic with its original furnishings, the small tables and the large counter, the antique ceramics and the stained glass windows.
Don’t worry, only a few tourists get lost on Rue Championnet. However, if you want to stop by the Bistro la Renaissance once, even if it’s just for a café noir and a pastis or Ricard, you will probably stay for a second. And if you’re already there, please eat something too. You can drink and eat in the morning, at noon and in the evening. Typical traditional bistro cuisine is served.
In the afternoon, a café gourmand is available or a quenelle de chocolat de Tanzanie, crème anglaise safranée, with coffee.
If you want to drink wine, you only need baguettes and quatre fromages (grande). A bottle of Grignan-les-Adhémar 2017, AOP Vallée du Rhône, a bottle of Domaine du Salut 2016, Graves, a bottle of Pic Saint-Loup, Domaine de Lambrusques 2017, AOP Languedoc or a bottle of organic wine Château Bas 2015, Côteaux go well with it d’Aix-e-Provence.
