Low-lit spot serves a reliable steak at any time of night
The ‘6’ in the name is for the Parisian 6th arrondissement, encompassing Saint-Germain-des-Prés, and the ornate decoration and low-lit interior of Paris 6 is a conspicuous replica of that trés chic neighbourhood. But Brazilian touches have snuck their way in here, too, from the big-screen TV showing futebol to the minor celebrities whose names adorn some of the dishes on the menu. The food seems better some days than it does others, though the steak frites and the house red are reliably good, and the almond trout – truite aux amandes – with mash is a buttery delight. The real draw here is that it stays open (and busy) 24 hours a day. And the clientele? Beautiful enough, for the most part, to be halfway to making their way onto the menu themselves.
