Paris Dining Guide

As part of my project “French Cuisine, Today?” I’ve started putting together a list of our favorite dining spots in Paris: restaurants, bars, cafés, boulangeries - you name it…

Sébastien and I usually steer clear of the most touristy spots and seek out quality restaurants that cater more to locals.  For the first six months we lived in Paris, we made a pact to only go to restaurants we’d never tried before – and that offered a type of food we weren’t familiar with.  We discovered all sorts of fare, from Savoyard to Breton, from Cambodian to Tibetan.  Our six-month venture didn’t last forever, simply because we got attached to a handful of favorites and keep going back!

All the restaurants on these lists have at least pescetarian options, if not full-fledged vegetarian meals.
