Where do French restaurateurs go in Paris? Bertrand Auboyneau’s favourites – Le 6 Paul Bert

Interview; Bertrand of Le 6 Paul Bert - www.MyFrenchLife.org

In the second part of our interview with Bertrand Auboyneau, the proprietor of Le 6 Paul Bert, we asked him where he spends his time in the French capital – when he’s not at Bistrot Paul Bert, or Le 6 Paul Bert, bien sûr.

A true French gastronome, Bertrand has a long list of favourite Parisian restaurants. He is very particular about what he wears and where he relaxes – a creature of habit, or perhaps just a man who knows what he likes.

How many of these places have you been to?

To eat

I am a little unrefined, because I don’t have a favourite restaurant. I really like the Comptoir d’Yves Camdeborde, the modern cuisine at Rino and the traditional cuisine of Olivier au Villaret. However, on Mondays you can find me at Racines or Racines 2 – it’s delicious!

I often go to Brittany to go sailing – I love it!

For a day trip

I go to Lisbon. I lived there eight years ago and it’s a city which is very close to my heart. I know Lisbon as well as I know Paris. The city attracts me just as much as the hospitality of the Portuguese – I love them!
