While Tib’s 17 is located in more of an office/ business/ tourist area, Tib’s 19 is situated in a residential Jewish area - similar to an American-Jewish town. Large families and kids walking up and down the street, people saying hello to each other, all with Tib’s right in the middle of the action. While one would think Tib’s 19 would be more casual than its brother restaurant, this restaurant is more stylish. The restaurant is larger and has outdoor seating on the corner of Manin Avenue. French doors are usually open so one can sit inside yet enjoy the cool Paris breeze. Booths and large tables can be found on the dining room floor with a similar large and varied menu as the one in District 17. The restaurant is owned by Ariel’s partner, Yigal and delivers the same terrific results. They stay opened one of the latest in the city and are just a few blocks off of the main Paris highway - Peripherique Boulevard.

The portions are generous, especially the salads (hard to finish) and the quality-price ratio is very good. The restaurant is often busy, so reservations are suggested but because they are open throughout the day (contrast to their name) and the restaurant’s capacity is large, you should have no trouble finding a table. For birthdays, they turn on the lights and music so be sure to come on your special day. Recommendations include the Tounsia pizza with over a dozen toppings and the parve hamburger which really does taste like meat. Everything is made fresh to order and especially with the crepes, you can let your mind wander with what ingredients you would like to select inside. Tib’s specializes in on and off premise catering and can accommodate large families and events.
