Paris Travel


Wonderful brasserie near Le Bon Marché


Located on Rue de Sèvres, Le Petit Lutetia is literally a 5 mins walk from Le Bon Marché and La Grande Épicerie, so if you want to boycott the in house restaurant (which is really rather good) La Table for something a little more traditionally Parisienne, then this is your spot.


This fairly large restaurant has an abundance of foliage and dark wood permeates the room – it’s got a traditional brasserie aesthetic and feels super cosy overall.

Lots of foliage which I love in a restaurant


Back at the start of Jan, my sisters and I embarked on the 2nd leg of the bridal fitting for my sister’s wedding as we were all excited to see how the dress was coming together.

 @ Celestina Agostino

Again, come lunch time, we looked to the inimitable Celestina Agostino for nearby restaurant recommendations. She said we should try Le Petit Lutetia – warned it was pricey but worth it. So, off we went post fitting, to fill our bellies with some quality French food.

I ordered a roast duck leg with some sliced sautéed potatoes.


Oh my, where do I even begin? The potatoes were perfectly cooked – the most staunch anti carbist would struggle not to indulge in these little beauties – simply delightful.


Then the duck – my restaurant go to dish, every.single.time. Well that duck, I will go so far as saying was nothing short of magnificent – literally nothing to fault there; wonderfully moist, slipping off the bone like a sexy little minx slips out of a silk slip, lubricated with a nice bit of fat. Can you tell I enjoyed this meal?

I stole some of this beef which my sister ordered: really superb

Service was professional and amenable – the folks in the back and front of house just know what the hell their doing. Superlative old school cooking and service. I will definitely be back.


We went at lunch time on a Friday and seats were occupied but the place was not heaving; I expect come dinner time Le Petit Lutetia would be packed. The crowd seemed generally upscale and local and with a lean towards an older demographic. It’s fairly formal but also pretty chilled at the same time – I felt really relaxed here and liked it a lot.

À plus tard


Quite pricey but worth it.


I absolutely LOVED this traditional brasserie near Le Bon Marché, from it’s old school feel to the delectable dishes. I would happily eat here again and again.
