La Tupina

Top choice french in Saint-Michel & Capucins-Victoire

Filled with the aroma of soup simmering inside a tupina ('kettle' in Basque) over an open fire, this iconic bistro is feted for its seasonal southwestern French fare: calf kidneys with fries cooked in goose fat, milk-fed lamb, tripe and goose wings. Dining is farmhouse-style, in a maze of small elegant rooms decorated with vintage photographs, antique furniture and silver tableware.
