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 […]

A Sensual Italian

A few years ago, Julien Cohen added another fashionably trendy notch to his Italian belt with Il Professore & Gocce, in the 9th arrondissement. But unlike his earlier bobo pizza joints, (Pizza Chic and Grazie) this venture seems bigger and more ambitious. The first “room” in this restaurant & lounge is Il Professore, a large, […]

Trashed Foods Gets New Life

This past Saturday, a friend and I participated in an event at our local market called Disco Soupe. It was co-sponsored by the Disco Soupe Movement and Les Rencontres Cuisine et Santé. The goal of the event was twofold: to raise awareness of food waste, and to show how fruits and veggies that would normally […]

Lunch in a Former Stationer’s Shop

I met a friend for lunch at Caffe Stern and was trepidatious about how much the space would be changed. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that the original moldings, woodwork, signs and architectural details were intact from its past as a stationer’s shop, and later learned the interiors and furniture were listed as […]

Alsatian Gastronomy in the Shadow of Sacre Coeur

Antoine Westermann’s Alsatian roots shine in all their glory at his bistro-rotisserie, which gasconades the barnyard (or basse-cour) in a simple yet elegantly Parisian fashion. Located in the quaint rue Lepic, just west of Sacré Coeur, le Coq Rico ostensibly represents his attempt to fly the coop from his Michelin-starred existence at the luxury Paris […]

Seventh Heaven

The 7th, the roof terrace bar of the 4-star Terrass Hotel in Montmartre, is a bar with a view. But not just any old view: the 7th floor vantage point that lends its name to the bar offers a spectacular view of Paris, with the Tour de Montparnasse, Les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower, lined up […]

Care for a Deer Heart Salad?

I went to Yard with a friend who told me the chef Nye Smith was famous for his offal at St John’s in London, so I wasn’t surprised to see game and fish on the menu (pigeon, deer heart salad, rabbit, and whole dorade cooked in salt). The gnocchi starter in a doe ragout was […]

Egg-xactly

Why do the French make omelets with just one egg? Because one egg is un oeuf!

Discount Dining in the Marais

The oldest covered market in the city (dating from the 1600s), this small market-cum-outdoor restaurant in the Haut Marais area (in the 3rd arrondissement), the Marche des Enfants Rouges sells both individual ingredients AND ready-to-eat cuisine from all over the world. Studded among the traditional food stands are a variety of stalls offering Moroccan, Italian, […]
