Twirl!

Pirouette is in a free standing building, very unusual for Paris, and is an open loft like space with double height ceilings and windows and a simple décor with warm wood floors, chairs, and tables. The 20-euro formule, entrée and plat, offered only one starter and a choice of beef or fish for main course. […]

Where’s the Burrito?

One of the things we’ve seen a bit of in Paris – which I think will become more prevalent – is bars focusing on a single spirit. A few years back Sherry Butt opened with a leaning towards whisky. And more recently there’s Mabel, the self proclaimed Cocktail Den and Rum Empire, as well as […]

A Cafe That Does It Differently

The Anti-Café now has three locations in Paris – Beaubourg (4th), Palais Royal (1st) and Les Olympiads (13th) – cozy lounges where you can meet, hang out, use Wifi, play board games, enjoy all-you-can-eat snacks and beverages (or bring your own food and drink), all for just €4/hour or €17 for the full day. There are tables, […]

Oh, Kei!

Dining in Paris has gotten more exciting this year with the addition of Kei to the roster of divine Parisian restaurants. As a student of Ducasse, Piège and Moret, Kei Kobayashi is known for bringing together the finesse of Asian cuisine and the strong tastes of local French dishes – this, obviously just reeled me […]

Craft Beer in Paris

Last month I trekked out to the gritty (okay, that’s code for ugly and covered in un-attractive-not-artsy graffiti) suburb of Montreuil by line 9 metro to pick up a fresh batch of Jolly Roger pumpkin beer from the rather spiffy micro-brewery of Deck & Donohue. It’s a young expat team from the US and Ireland who give […]

The Yule Log: Back to Its Roots

The fabulous Un Dimanche a Paris, a concept shop, restaurant, and bar all about chocolate has a new collection of Christmas cakes and Buche de Noel for 2014. Renewing an ancient tradition, Un Dimanche a Paris has gone back to the roots of the Buche de Noel, Un Noel en Foret (Christmas in the Forest) […]

Giving the Costes Another Try

I’m not a huge fan of the Costes restaurants, especially their original homebase, L’Hotel Costes, which doesn’t live up to its prices and has a flaky wait staff to boot. HOWEVERRRR, I have to admit that my most recent visit to one of the Costes’ Paris cafés really made me rethink my preset judgment. I […]

No Joke

When I first moved to Paris in 2005, I frequented Le Clown Bar, a cozy restaurant next door to Le Cirque d’Hiver. Loaded with charm, the interior from the turn of the century had tile inserts with clown motifs, along with an excellent two-course menu for about 25 euros. As I became more familiar with […]

Tower-Adjacent Dining

Eating around the Eiffel Tower is not THAT difficult, but you can’t really be too picky.  It’s pretty much a choice between restaurants that are overpriced for what you get, restaurants that don’t allow reservations and are packed, or humdrum joints that aren’t worth staying in the area for. This is why I’m so glad to […]
