Female Chef

My wife and i were in Paris about 10 yrs ago and we ate at this fabulous little bistro that was being run by the best female chef in Paris at that time. We want to return this year and would appreciate any suggestions as to her name or her restaurants name. Thank you all very much.

At that time, it could have been Hélène Darroze: http://www.helenedarroze.com/

Thank you, but she was not the chef we visited. The bistro was a smaller venue with a typical neighborhood feel. Small tables with white tableclothes and the aroma of bread baked in the cellar below.

I'm sorry but i can't remember. i remember the restaurant seemed to be on the first floor of someones apartment and it sat on a corner with the front door literally on the corner. it had a small bar in the back of the restaurant. Very quaint. Really wish to return.

As seanbee suggests, maybe Ghislaine Arabian’s Les Petites Sorcières. It’s on a corner.

japper - I'm confused - did you eat in an apartment or in a restaurant with an upstairs dining room?

It wasn't Chez Denise, near Les Halles, by any chance...?

It was a restaurant on the ground floor but it was in a residential area and could have been mistaken for an apartment.
