Introduction to Parisian Restaurants

Paris is a food lover's dream. It's almost impossible to find a terrible restaurant in Paris, as the French would simply not eat there. It's best to stay away from tourist traps (i.e. if you see a photo of the food in the window, it's not a place Parisians dine in). Below we've listed just a few of our favorite tasty spots. While they are a delicious place to start, don't stop with just our suggestions! The Parisian food landscape is endless and best explored by wandering down a hidden side street and slipping into one of her many charming, 4 table bistros. Bon appetit!

Keep in mind that many Parisians go on vacation in the summer, so please call ahead to make sure your restaurant will be open during your visit.
