Our travel book had this restaurant rated as "the pick" of the district, so we figured we owed it to ourselves to have dinner there. It is one of the restaurants in Paris that still has much of the original interior, in this case classic art nouveau, so the enviornment was a plus. The menu was classic French cuisine, but with only 5 or 6 entrees. We generally don't eat red meat, but against the other options, the steak entree seemed to be the best pick for us, and we admit the cut of beef was very nicely prepared, tender and tasty. The one distraction to our meal was the heat. The evening we visited Bouillon Racine was on a day in the low 90's, so it was still in the sultry mid-80's at 8PM, and there was no A/C. The restuarant has large doors that open to the sidewalk, and they were ajar to let what little breeze there was come in. Paris in general is not big on A/C, and if you haven't experienced Paris in a heat wave, you may want to seek out places that use A/C, and save this restaurant for a cooler evening.
