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?
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’m a little obsessive! For 25 years I’ve bought my shirts in Ralph Lauren and my shoes at Weston.
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!
Thank you Bertrand for sharing your favourite places with us. We were delighted to meet you and to eat at le 6 Paul Bert!
