Along with art galleries, and a vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere, you’ll have the chance to discover some of the most renowned restaurants in the City of Light. Here they are:
Le Gaigne belongs to a young chef with a lot of experience in haute cuisine. It is smaller than usual, only 20 seats, but it serves very creative food. Chef Mickaël Gaignon has worked with Pierre Gagnaire, which is expressed through dishes like l´oeuf bio (three open shells stuffed with creamed spinach, carrot and celery) or roasted monkfish with broccoli puree and gooseberry emulsion. This is a great place to eat.
With a modern design and a menu that contains more than 15 artisanal ciders, this Breton restaurant is much more than a traditional creperie. Here is what to order: start with a plate of Cancale oysters, followed by a Cancaleise crepe, made with potatoes, smoked herring and herring roe from Brittany. The choice of fillings is a bit limited, but all the ingredients are high quality, including a Valhorna chocolate with 70% cocoa crepes for dessert.
The owners of this fantastic place do everything they can for you enjoy all its unique tastes. Colorful fresh salads, soups and the risotto of the day, go along with a plate of smoked salmon and assorted Merci or with the chicken kefta with two salads and an assortment of teas and juices, along with homemade desserts. This is an ideal place to come for lunch or dinner.
This classic hostel serves the best food from central France. An order of ham comes with two dishes: one that contains thin slices of ham, a lentil salad cooked with goose fat and studded with chunks of lamb. The other comes with chunks of lamb with a very tasty sauce and white beans. The perfect side dish for this menu is a delicious combination of mashed potatoes and cheese. Of course, there would not be a French dinner without wine; here you’ll want to try Chanturgue, Boudes, Madargues, and AOC Marcillac.
Every Sunday at noon, there are long lines of hungry customers buying falafel at the restaurants on Rue des Rosiers. Located a little further is Chez Hannah, which remains more isolated than the others of its kind. Here you’ll find delicious falafels and swarhama that cost 4 Euro (take away) or 8 Euro if you want to eat in the restaurant.
Opening a raw-food restaurant has its risks, but Cru owners have succeeded at it. Its menu includes many vegetable chips and a few grilled dishes, including dishes for carnivores like the beef carpaccio with lemon. The best thing of this restaurant is to enjoy its spectacular terrace, inserted in a crowded street in Le Marais district.
Paris is a cultural paradise where you’ll be able to enjoy, apart of the before mentioned restaurants, a great range of places and activities to remember. Find beautiful apartments in Paris city and get the most out of the City of Light.
