Most anyone you ask will have Frenchie on their list of best restaurants in Paris. That usually means that reservations are impossible to secure, and it also often means that by the time you actually get a seat, you’re so hyped up on the place that it will inevitably let you down a little bit. In our opinion, there are too many great restaurants in this town to get stressed out over a reservation at Frenchie. That’s why their wine bar is such a beautiful thing. At Frenchie Bar à Vins, the food is just as good as it is at the main spot across the street, but they do not take reservations. So you can just stroll up, order a bottle of wine from their incredible selection, and dive into a few excellent things to eat.

One of the hottest Paris restaurants for several years, Septime is nearly impossible to get into. But you should still try. It’s one of Paris’ best.
A solid, traditional brasserie in the 16th, Le Stella is good any night of the week, but it’s especially useful because it’s open on Sundays.
Papillon in the 17th is somewhat upscale but also relaxed, and while the menu here is constantly changing, we’ve yet to walk away disappointed.
