If Paris is the City of Love and you are a self-declared foodie, then you have certainly encountered a romantic situation.
Grabbing a bite on a nice and cozy place in Paris could be more difficult than you thought. The city is swarming with options, and while some tourist traps must be avoided at all costs (Champs Elysées restaurants, i’m looking at you), there are certainly some spots that you should try, whether you live in the city or you are a joyful summer tourist. With no further delay, here is my top 10 suggestions to delight yourselves in the City of Lights.
Daroco, the most beautiful and tasty Trattoria in Paris [6 Rue Vivienne, 75002] They also have an amazing cocktail bar at the end of the restaurant. Booking is a must.
Vaudeville Brasserie, the authentic french experience [29 rue Vivienne, 75002] A splendid place to have a half-cooked and tender magret de canard.
L’Escargot, or the snail kingdom [38 rue Montorgueil, 75001] You can’t come to Paris and not try them. Put your prejudice aside and get that french connection with half a dozen of tasty snails. (spoiler: they taste like butter)
Depôt Légal, best spot for brunch on a Saturday morning [6 rue des Petits Champs, 75002] This coffee spot is a keeper. Don’t miss their truffled croque-monsieurs and healthy banana bowls.
Wepler Brasserie, and their late-night burger delights [14 place de Clichy, 75018] Whether you crave for a tasty burger or a dozen of oysters, the Wepler will undoubtedly deliver (until midnight).
Chez Janou, the perfect resto after a lovely walk through Place des Vosges [2 rue Roger Verlomme, 75003]. This is the recommendation of locals, so you just can’t get it wrong.
Loca, for a proper argentinian steak in the City of Lights [29 rue Lambert, 75018] F. @sliceofpai. I’m drooling over myself while remembering the steak I had here a couple of weeks ago. Not to miss.
Pink Mamma, and the art of uncomplicated and delicious Italian food [20bis rue de Douai, 75009] Truffled pasta, pizza and tagliatelle are some of the reasons why this is one of the most popular restaurants in Paris.
La Palette, must-go french bistrot at the heart of Saint Germain [43 rue de Seine, 75006] To end a lovely afternoon of errands around Saint Germain des Près.
Manko Paris, by the world-renowned peruvian chef Gaston Acurio. My heart if with them, of course. #PeruCorazón. Also: don’t miss their Cabaret on Fri/Sat nights. [15 Avenue Montaigne, 75008]
