Tucked in a discrete corner in a quiet neighborhood of the 14th arrondissement, taxi drivers know where they’re going when clients ask for the rue des Plantes around lunch or dinner time. Vintage chairs fill this simple bistro that features chalk illustrations of cuts of red meat on the walls. While some of the starters are light and may even be vegetarian, Severo is all about the beef. And fries. Their crispy yet creamy fries are the perfect side to their expertly grilled steaks— making a quintessentially Parisian meal all the more French when served by two friendly waiters wearing red and white stripped butcher aprons and welcoming smiles.
