Le Baratin

Perfect For:Date Night

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.

Le Stella

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.

Miznon

Miznon comes to Paris from a famous Israeli chef, who opened the original in Tel Aviv. The menu changes frequently, but the sandwiches are excellent.

La Tour d'Argent

La Tour d’Argent has the best wine cellar in the world. As in almost 500,000 bottles. They also have a mean pressed duck, and other opulent things.

Le Temps des Cerises

Le Temps des Cerises is a local favorite in Le Marais for French bistro classics. The menu is small, but excellent.
