It is thrilling to ring in the New Year in Paris, but finding a great place that is open with fresh food & wine, not so easy. Here are my top picks for you to either go out in a classic bistrot, a TOP CHEF finalist’s hot new cocktail bar & restaurant or to stay in.
Holiday Guide: Where to find the best oysters, bistros, natural wine bars, craft cocktails, street food, Asian/Italian, fine dining & more during Dec. 26-30.
Dec. 24 & 25 are the quietest restaurant days of the year. Whether you go out or to stay in with platters of oysters, pizza & wine these are my top picks for fresh food & wine.
Caves à manger are fun little wine shops that serve small sharing plates with their wine. They are popular with Parisians as places to socialise during apero (short for aperitif) from 6-8:30pm before and (often) after dinner.
Because you aren’t interested in every place to eat, only the places to eat, right now… these are my top picks / short list in each of Paris’ arrondissements.
Voila! My top picks by neighbourhood that are open part of or all summer – the good news is that there are even more options than last year.
Finding restaurants open during August can be a challenge. Then, finding good restaurants that are open takes a lot of effort. But no worries, I’ve done the leg work for you. Here’s the short list.
Eating & drinking through this hip northeast arr. can’t be accomplished in a weekend, it is literally the hottest area going, especially for the natural wine scene.
If you only have 24 hours in Paris, these natural wine bars are a must. FYI that by law all wine bars must sell food with alcohol.
Although most restaurants are closed on Sunday, these options are not just good, they are great.
When I am asked by foodie travellers who want to know where to eat, right, now, this is where I send them. Up Next? 10 Paris Wine Bars not to be missed.
The million dollar question, isn’t what restaurants are open on Monday, but which good restaurants are open on Monday. #donotwasteameal
