We looked back over Paris Update’s weekly restaurant reviews from last year and chose our 10 favorites, ranging from the intimate and inexpensive to the impressive and pricey. They all have one common feature: high-quality food. We hope you’ll appreciate them as much as we did.
A touch of Venice
To eat here is to fall in love with the mamma’s Venetian-style cooking and the homey ambiance.
Down-home, French family-style
Great neighborhood bistro run by a brother and sister.
Best take-Mom-to-Sunday-lunch restaurant
A class act: wonderful food, a beautiful Art Nouveau decor, a winter garden and a real garden for summer dining.
Best Korean cuisine
No table barbecues and some surprises in this gourmet Left Bank Korean restaurant.
Chouchou lunch spot
Adorable for its food, atmospheres and friendly owner.
This Montmartre bistro stands out for its originality and great ingredients.
Gare de l’Est
Say good-bye to bad food in the environs of the train station.
Owned by a caviar supplier, but really just a cozy bistro with great food.
Simple, sparkling-fresh seafood straight from the coast on a quiet street in the Marais.
On the upscale side, with fine food and a social conscience.Favorite
How can you not mention Guy Martin’s LE GRAND VÉFOUR? I dine when there with regularity, the finest in Paris, worth every euro.
This is not an all-inclusive list, just our top 10 from those reviewed last year. Thanks for telling us about your favorite, which also has one of Paris‘s must beautiful 19th-century restaurant decors, by the way.
