Score 1 for Lazy Bums!

Food delivery is nothing new in Paris, but the choices used to be pretty slim unless you happen to adore pizza, sushi, or tandoori chicken. Now there’s a new generation of services offering delivery of food we actually want, whether it’s from popular restaurants, gourmet home-cooked meals, or just breakfast in bed. And of course, […]

The Latte Generation

There are a few special places in Paris that need little introduction – the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, a handful of parks and, I’d argue, the literary institution Shakespeare & Company. But I’ll give you a little background anyway. When it was owned by American expat Sylvia Beach in the 1920s-1930s, it was […]

Korean Cocktail Adventures!

The Quixotic Project team (Candelaria, Le Mary Celeste, Glass) is once again ahead of the curve with their latest opening: Hero, Korean Restaurant and Bar. Rather than rest on their laurels, this group has brought something fresh and unique to the scene with each new opening, earning them a fiercely loyal legion of foodie and […]

New Girls in Town

Many new gourmet shops have opened on rue des Martyrs in the 9th arrondissement; it seems as though a new one pops up every few weeks. I stumbled upon a most adorable pastry shop, Mesdemoiselles Madeleines. A recent trend in pastry shops in Paris is taking a classic pastry, such as éclairs and cream puffs, […]

Southern Comfort in the North of Paris

  Pigalle continues its play for one of Paris’ best bar destinations with its latest addition, Baton Rouge. This opening brings some fresh Creole flavor to the neighborhood with a voodoo bar and Louisiana-inspired menu. The team behind Baton Rouge includes a couple of topnotch industry personalities with Julien Escot (Papa Doble, Montpellier) and Joseph […]

Your Own Parisian Dinner Party

If you’d like to really “eat like a local,” nothing beats dining in a Parisian home. And if you don’t have any Parisian friends, you can simply sign up to join a dinner through meal-sharing websites. Vizeat has hosts in 18 cities, including Paris, Nice, Marseille and Lyon, where each meal (regularly scheduled or on request) is […]


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 […]
