Thanks to its status as the hottest/best restaurant in Paris for several years now, Septime is damn near impossible to get into. That means calling for a reservation well in advance of your trip is essential. But once you do get a table, you’ll be blown away by the ingredient-driven cuisine and excellent wine list. The people here are nice too, so feel free to try out a few of those French words you’ve just added to your vocabulary. Actually, don’t.

La Cave de Septime
Septime La Cave in the 11th is an excellent place to grab a bottle of natural wine, some meats, and some cheese before a meal at Septime or Clamato.
Bistrot Paul Bert
Bistrot Paul Bert is one of the most famous and popular bistros in all of Paris. Check it off your list, every time you go.
Brutos in the 11th is a sort of Brazilian steakhouse without the all-you-can-eat meat option on the menu - and it's actually charming with good food.

Aux Deux Amis
Au Deux Amis is an excellent late night spot in Oberkampf, which is where you’ll probably end up if you’re out late in Paris.
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.
