American food in Paris

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I will be visiting some friends in Paris soon. One is very gastonomic, but not the other; in fact, he is known as M. McParis. They both think Americans eat like pigs. I would like to try to convince them to the contrary. Where to take them for decent USA food in Paris? Anyone know much about Chez Haynes, Breakfast in America, or Blue Bayou (I used to live in New Orleans)? I hear bad things about the Tex-Mex chain named Indiana.

Ken -- there's one good place that I've tried that has very good waffles and pancakes and believe it or not, one hell of a good burger. Quality ingredients, etc. Place is packed, service not so good. Let me ask my wife what the address is. It's near a place that sells Alden and Trickers on the right bank. Sort of pathetic that this is the way I give directions, based on the location of clothing and shoes, but there it is. edit: oh yes, there's also a "chain" -- at least I think it's part of a chain, called Buffalo something or other. Or Texas something or other. By all accounts of the French, it's actually good quality food. Even if the atmosphere isn't the best. That's in Montparnasse. Near city wall. Let me check on that too.

Ken:

Coffee Parisien serves a good interpretation of classic American diner food, in a classier ambience.

Check your Zagat's -- if you don't have one, buy one.

There was a wonderful brunch place on the rue du Cherche Midi, I forget what it was called.

There's also a nostalgia place called Thanksgiving.

Avoid anything Tex-Mex themed in Paris as it will be god-fucking-awful.

Sam Pepper serves some takes on American food, in the 8th arrondissement.

just off the top of my head.

They exported them to Bs As too! Although, in Bs As they call them "˜Freeday's', an irony which is not lost on me.

KP, why don't you ask if you can borrow their kitchen?
