From frequent contributor Betty Guernsey:
Parigot (French slang for “Parisian”), occupying the corner of Grand Street where it meets Lafayette, is a small, friendly, downtown spot with the emphasis on unpretentiousness and a certain authenticity – similar perhaps to what you might find in an arrondissement like the 11th in Paris.
Its owners are French, the waiters are French, as are many of its patrons, many of whom have made Parigot their home away from home – in addition to locals living or working in the neighborhood.
With 12 tables and a tiny bar, it’s not fancy, but its typically Parisian menu includes an excellent steak au poivre, salade niçoise, a decent house wine, and a tarte tatin of which they are justifiably proud.
