La Petit Lutetia has become a favorite ever since it was taken over and face-lifted by Jean Louis Costes, the man behind city institutions Hôtel Costes and La Société. The décor is still that of a classic Paris bistro with the charming mirrored walls, the monogrammed dishes, the haphazard stacks of newspapers, and too-small tables. While the food is certainly good, you’re here for the people watching, an endless parade of beautifully outfitted Parisians ducking out for cigarettes between courses, and drinking seemingly endless glasses of red wine like water.
