We’re not big on the whole “go to this place just because Anthony Bourdain did” thing, but it is true that Anthony Bourdain visited Le Baratin during one of his episodes of The Layover. But the more important point to be made is that Le Baratin is a place where Parisian chefs eat. Owner Raquel Corina is a bit of a legend in the local restaurant community, and her food is simple and homey and exactly what you want to eat when you’re in Paris. It’s a bit of a trek up to the 20th from the center of the city, but it’s 100% worth the trip.

Frenchie Bar A Vins
At Frenchie Bar à Vins, the food is just as good as it is at the Frenchie across the street, but you can actually get in.
L’Ami Jean is a lively French bistro in the 7th, and it’s on the expensive side, but the food is excellent, exciting, and worth your time.
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.
