La Bourse et la Vie – Small Bistro Big Flavor

La Boruse et La Vie is a small bistro in Paris.  I went straight to the main dish here without a starter because I had a big lunch.  Roasted pigeon, and foie gras.  It is brought over in a copper pan and then plated for your tableside.  The sauce is a warm vinaigrette, is delicious, and cuts the richness of the dish well.

This is a heavy dish.  Absolutely delicious.  The perfectly cooked pigeon and the fattiness of the foie work so well together with the sauce.



For dessert a rum baba.  Not the best I’ve had but still good.


Service was very good.  Others at my table had ribeye and also fish.  Both were good too.  8.5/10
