Where can I find the best steak tartare in Paris? Someone recently asked, “Where can I get the best steak tartare in Paris?” I responded with 4 spots. Boom, done. But then I thought: ‘What if others, too, want to know where they can eat tender minced raw beef combined with the perfect balance of salty & tangy ingredients?’ So let’s dive in. First of all, it must be said, in all caps: STEAK TARTARE IS RAW GROUND STEAK. Some people don’t know this. I recently saw a review where the person gave 1 star and complained that the steak tartare almost seemed raw, like raw tuna. …Mhm. I, too, was on ..read more

Photo: http://www.frenchie-ftg.com Restaurant Frenchie has been a cult favorite foodie restaurant for the past ten years, and it recently earned a well-deserved Michelin star. It has been notoriously difficult to score a reservation at this small (and pretty fabulous) restaurant for years now. Chef and owner Gregory Marchand basically took over the street Rue du Nil, and now has, in addition to its flagship restaurant: Frenchie Bar à Vins (aka Frenchie Wine Bar) – No reservations accepted, but still the same excellent level of food in small plate form Frenchie To Go (more casual, and I’ll exp ..read more

Holybelly 19

HB19 for the lunch side of brunch The team behind the ever-beloved Holybelly 5 opened a sister restaurant, Holybelly 19. It’s definitely different than the ultra breakfast-focused Holybelly 5, but they still focus on high quality dishes and friendly service. You’re also almost guaranteed to wait at Holybelly 5, whereas you can put your name in at Holybelly 19 if there’s a wait, which is nice. This used to be the original location of Holybelly, Queen of the Paris Brunch Spots. They needed more space to accommodate the growing crowds for HB5, though, so they relocated down the street to 5 Rue ..read more

HolyBelly 5 HolyBelly has had lines out the door for years, and it’s really a testament to the fact that they make some unbelievably satisfying brunch food. On top of this worth-crossing-town-for brunch fare, they have friendly and efficient service, mighty fine coffee (not always a given), and it’s all done in a pretty space.  It’s all the brunch basics we crave. The thing is that they go the extra mile – it’s not just an egg or a pancake. They’ve made their dishes standout with creative twists and quality ingredients. Exhibit A, my favorite breakfast dish of all time: The Savory Stack ..read more

It is surprisingly hard to find good classic French bistros in Paris these days. I know you think you’d step off the plane and into a mecca of fabulous traditional bistros left and right. There are lots of bistros, lots of cafes, and lots of restaurants. It’s just that most of them are a far cry from fabulous. In fact, your average café, atmospheric as it may be, will likely be serving some sad, sorry food that will make you question what all the fuss is about. Which means that the place you choose is important. Eating traditional French food in Paris is an absolute must for at least one of yo ..read more

Josephine Chez Dumonet: One of the Best Classic French Restaurants Left in Paris

It is actually pretty hard to find good traditional French food in Paris now. Josephine Chez Dumonet is on it. This is an old world bistro from the Belle Epoque era. Here’s the thing. Before we dive in, I want to keep it real. I’ve been to Josephine Chez Dumonet many times over the years. But you know what? I always go at night. And you know what’s not good at night? Lighting. In an old restaurant. So the photos I have are trash, and I admit it, with my whole heart. Since my photos are too dark and ugly to see the light of day, I’m going to insert some Instagram photos from total stranger ..read more

New restaurants! How exciting. If you’re anything like me, your Paris restaurant list is always growing. You have your all-time favorites, while also trying new spots, so it can be hard to keep up. But keep up we must, because good things are happening. There are 8 new restaurants/wine bars on the restaurant surveillance radar that are glowing bright above the rest. Le Fooding, of course, is all over it with its small army of food gnomes. But I think I have ONE new yet-to-open restaurant that the gnomes haven’t announced yet. A good one, too.
