We had made a dinner reservations for the Bistro du 1er and arrived to find Le Brun. Yes, Le Bistro closed over the August break and had just reopened with a new chef and new management, although some staff are carry-overs. It turns out we hit the new place on opening night (Sept 11). They honored the reservation we had made for the old place (but truthfully, they were not full), and so my husband and I gave it a go.
Bottom line: it was very good and we'd recommend it. The staff are all young and hip and very friendly. All spoke pretty good English, although the menu is only in French. The food is "modern bistro" and we can recommend the seared salmon starter with avocado wasabi cream, plus the roasted chicken and magret de canard as entrees. Our server suggested an excellent Syrah and it paired well with our food.
We liked the ambiance - the background music was fun and the noise level was moderate. When we're in Paris again, we're going to check up on this new team.

The restaurant is closed. This was not clear on TripAdvisor, only after searching in reviews we found the restaurant to be closed. Took us quit a walk to find out by ourselves. See photo.

The server spoke good English and explained the food well
The for was not bad. Just that special items on Menu are not as special.
They offered 30% 0off for reserving online.

Booked online but probably wasn't necessary. Was met by the main waiter who spoke great English and showed us to our table even though we were early.
The menu was in french however the waitress was able to eloquently translate it for us.
I had lamb shoulder and veg- immense!
My gf had pork 'surf and turf' - good!
Over all paid €76 for two mains and a bottle of wine.
Would recommend and revisit!
