Here’s the Beef!

Jean-Francois Clavier, the owner of a company Archibald Gourmet, which imports Wagyu beef to France, and Jean-Francois Celbert, owner of the upscale Josephine Restaurant and Boulangerie have teamed up to serve a Wagyu tasting menu. Wagyu is a breed of Japanese cow that yields a high percentage of oleaginous unsaturated fat, producing a high quality […]

Rum’s French Accent

Rum is an incredibly interesting spirit, from its rich history to modern-day debates on its true definition. It can be sipped straight or mixed into a cocktail. There’s also its cheeky tiki side. En plus, it’s got a real French connection with artisanal rhum agricole hailing from the islands. If you’re already a rum lover […]

Where It All Goes

(I don’t know what this is, but I love it.)

France Bans Free Soda Refills

Until I visited France, I had always thought that a person’s weight simply increases irrevocably as one ages. One day in Paris, however, clarified that misinformation. The lean-ness of the citizens struck me, particularly of the chic older people. Grandpas and grannies strolled their trim figures around the the Jardin de Luxembourg, their beige trench […]

Sweet and Simple Bistro in the Marais

It’s tucked away on a Marais side street, at 8 Rue de Jouy, that I’d almost forgotten about Metropolitain. The neighborhood standby has been around as long as I can remember with its cherry red storefront dotted with portholes. Passing it last month, I saw they had a 20€ two-course lunch menu and decided to […]

A Vegan in Paris

Last weekend there were two big vegan events in Paris, the Veggie Pride parade and market at Place Stalingrad overlooking the canal, and the Veggie World fair at Le Centquatre. I went to the fair to find some decent vegan cheese for making pizza, and ended up going home with a whole grocery bag full […]

A Secret Menu and A Boozy Liquid Pizza

People who know about CopperBay’s new hush-hush menu can ask for this mysterious, unmarked, gray menu. There’s only one copy of this hand-drawn notebook, which offers three unusual, creative cocktails. So, what differentiates the secret menu from the standard menu? A few things: The presentation is kicked up a notch. There is more of a […]

Book ’em, Danico

A while back I made a visit to Mama Shelter where I was impressed by the drinks, as well as the person making them. That was 2009 and the bartender was Nico de Soto. And while Mama Shelter may have kind of lost cocktail cred over the past few years, Nico has seriously gone places (literally […]

They’re All the Same, Right?

Before setting out for an unforgettable day of Paris dining, it’s important to understand the differences between these types of establishments. And once you do, it’s important to understand that the distinctions are becoming blurrier all the time. Bistros are generally small, often family-run and open for limited hours at lunch and/or dinner. The food […]

Gros, Not Gross!

At lunch Gros, in the 10th arrondissement, has a 17€ (appetizer and main course or main course and dessert) or 22€ for appetizer, main course and dessert. You choose between three items for each course. I started with lentils mixed with a delicious and delicate hummus and a big crust of hard sesame bread. My […]
