Passage 53

$$$$+33 1 42 33 04 35

Passage 53 is a two-star Michelin restaurant in Paris, and we honestly don't eat at many places in Paris with that many stars. Too often the food is too rich, too expensive, and takes up too much of your precious time that you could otherwise spend stuffing croissants in your mouth.

But if you are looking for a high end experience without all the stuffiness, this is the place for it. Passage 53 is in one of those ridiculously cute covered passages that Paris has. The food is excellent and not as heavy as you might expect from a place like this, and it's worth a special occasion splurge.

Le Servan

Le Servan is of our favorite little bistros in all of Paris, and we’re not alone in that sentiment. Hit it for lunch and some unexpected flavors.

Ellsworth review image

Ellsworth is a casual restaurant from the team behind Verjus, and it’s one of our favorites in Paris. Hit it for brunch, or for some fried chicken.

Verjus review image

Verjus is one of our favorite restaurants in Paris, simply because their seasonal tasting menu is consistently excellent. Don’t miss it.

Septime review image

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.
