Last night we attended a champagne reception at La Bonne Franquette, a restaurant located on Butte Montmartre not far from Sacré-Cur Basilica. Organized by the owners, Patrick and Anne Fracheboud, there were six different champagnes available to taste including three mono-cépages (champagne from a single grape variety).
La Bonne Franquette specializes in regional cuisine. We dined there recently and were impressed by the quality of the food and service. Located in the heart of a major tourist attraction (just off place du Tertre), it would be so easy for the owners to take the path of least resistance and serve mediocre food to the hundreds of tourists who come here. The Frachebouds, however, have chosen to set their sights higher. The proof is in the quality of the delicious regional dishes that they serve!
We wrote an extensive article about La Bonne Franquette for this month’s edition of Le Bon Goût, a restaurant review feature that appears in our monthly newsletter Paris Insights.
