Probably one of the best things to happen to French food in the last few decades, the bistronomique movement sparked a renaissance of revitalized restaurants. Often tied to the birth of La Regalade, the bistronomique trend began when some of Paris’s top chefs abandoned their posts at fine dining restaurants and opened small casual bistros that were much less expensive. Many of these new restaurants have since become classics in their own right, and now the style is entrenched, giving birth to new restaurants who follow in their footsteps every year.
