Place Vendôme, considered a favorite among Parisians, is a renowned historic square located in the heart of Paris. This is purposefully a bistro, not a café nor a brasserie. The selection of the name "Bistro Vendôme" reflects our desired image in the community: a local favorite in a downtown rich with history that offers an exceptional dining experience in a charming, neighborhood setting.
