Le Stella

Paris, November 2018 – In the heart of the 16th arrondissement, a short stroll from the famous sight of Trocadéro, is a classic Parisian brasserie – Le Stella.  Several French people told us that Le Stella has one of the best steak tartare in the city and is where locals go. Since Mr. King and I don’t eat raw beef, we had to take their word on the steak tartare. We had an early dinner there, and were impressed by their cooking.

It was a pleasant change to be away from the tourist crowds. The décor is typical of Parisian brasseries, wood panelling and red leather chairs. The menu has a number of classic brasserie dishes (like seafood platters, grilled pig’s foot and steak & fries). The waiters were very friendly and helpful.

We ordered the Onion Soup au Gratin. It was the perfect starter for a cold winter evening.

For the main course, Mr. King selected Stewed Farmhouse Poultry with Boiled Potatoes.  The chicken was tender and very juicy.

I chose the Grilled Rib Steak (350g), served with parsley and lemon butter, and Le Stella’s fresh French fries. The steak was succulent, and the fries were crispy and addictive.

Each dish was tasty, and the portions were very generous. We ended up not ordering any desserts as we were stuffed.
