Best Restaurants at the Mysterious Butte aux Cailles

The Butte-aux-Cailles (translation: Quail Hill) is a quiet little neighborhood in the 13th arrondissement that's often compared to a village in Spain, and rightly so. It's home to a constellation of great restaurants, along with a couple of less-great places.

Our roundup tells you which are worth a special trip.
L’Avant Gout: Chef Christophe Beaufront oversees an operation which le Fooding calls a gastronomic mini-Nirvana and which is very affordable given the quality.
26 rue Bobillot 75013 Paris.
Chez Paul: A French bistrot so classic you will think you’re dining somewhere in Burgundy, this is the kind of place your French lover’s parents adore.
22 rue de la Butte aux Cailles 75013 Paris.
Chez Gladines : Year-round you can depend on this place for salads bigger than your head served in a giant steel bowl and specialties from the Basque region.
30 rue des Cinq Diamants 75013 Paris.
Café Fusion: The décor is a little institutional, and the flavors are correspondingly clean. Choices include avocado and mango tartare, pork Pad Thai and coconut chicken crumble.
