Paris: Brutos

Lucas Baur de Campos & Ninon Leconte’s rustic little spot is a local favorite for tapas like roasted chicken (Sundays only), smoked beef croquettes with chili sauce, followed by family-style platters of grilled beef bone marrow dripping jus into pureed potatoes and generous cuts of red meat & natural wine.

Insider Tip:

The terrace is perfect for groups. Solo diners can request the bar overlooking the kitchen.

What to Order:

This wood-grilled beef bone marrow dripping jus into pureed buttery potatoes (pictured), and whatever is in the grill is in season: Langoustines, whole fish, sweetbreads, rib-eye dusted with cassava flour, lamb shoulder, prime rib, black Angus ribs, beef croquettes guava-sweet chili sauce, addictive home made fries, equally additive fried tapioca squares.

Getting In:

Reserve WELL in advance (I have a reservation link below), especially on Sundays.

What to know before you reserve:

Although Brutos serves killer cuts of red meat , do not expect a “fancy steakhouse” with expensive “Chateau” wines. They are cookin’ their hearts out in their little rustic kitchen and are passionate about quality product, including small production wines made with little or no additives.

If you need your meat cooked well-done, it is better not to reserve here and risk be disappointed/offended when they tell you they won’t do it.

Follow them on IG for Pop Up Dinners:

They are good friends with the famous Joe Beef guys in Montreal, often doing popups while they are in town.

Respect Your Reservation:

Confirm your booking the day of or in case you need to cancel, do so in advance.

If they don’t hear from you or if you don’t show up, not only do they lose business, they deny others who want to dine.

If you don’t confirm your table, they cannot guarantee your booking, and fifteen minutes after the time of your booking, the table can be replaced.
