The second edition of Dining Out in Paris, by American in Paris Tom Reeves, has just been published in paperback. This indispensable resource for new visitors to Paris delivers on its subtitle: “What You Need to Know before You Get to the City of Light,” explaining all the mysteries of French restaurants, food shops and markets: how to make sure your meat is cooked the way you like it, how to ask for tap water rather than bottled water, how much to tip, etc.

This edition focuses on the fifth arrondissement, with new reviews of restaurants and food shops. For nervous newcomers who don’t want to be mistaken for Ugly Americans, the most valuable section will probably be the tips on “how to dine like a local.”
