Restaurants for History Buffs in Paris, France
Though Chez Gladines serves basque food, I've rarely been to a place so reminiscent of traditional french conviviality. This no frills restaurant is loud, busy, cheap, young, and cheery; with checkered table cloths, (thankfully) never-ending portions, and free-flowing wine. Come hungry and early, especially if your party is bigger than two people.Popular withFoodiesBudgetLocal

Had American Thanksgiving here, and it couldn't have been any further from what was going on at home in NYC (in the best way)! :) Moroccan, tagine, shared tables, loud music, great ambiance, belly dancers...the food is decent to good, service is ok to less than ok, but you go here for the fun and the place is gorgeous.Popular withTrendstersNightlifeFoodies

Good place for oil or cheese fondu! Unlimited bread for dipping and if you order meat there is so much you will not finish. They serve wine in baby bottles with nipples and everything, not sure why, just the way the place is. It's set up family-style and the ladies have to hop over the table; no matter what they ...
Charming and unique, Au Grain de Folie is one of the best vegetarian restaurants in all of Paris. It offers only a few tables but for the lucky people sitting in them a veggie delight awaits. I was a vegetarian for 4 years and I have rarely been to a purely vegetarian restaurant this good.Popular withVegetarianWellnessFoodies
Le Fumoir opposite the Louvre in it’s classical style is my favourite place for after work cocktails, particularly in the winter when when the wood lined walls make the large room feel cosy. There have a 6€ happy hour menu before 8pm but get there early as tables are always in demand. The food is excellent, if a little pricey. ...
Can't say enough about the Chez Marianne lunch. See all those people lining up over there at L'As? Dummies. Walk another half block to Marianne's, sit yourself down with little to no waiting, and order the plate of 4, 5, or 6, or even better, share with someone and order the plate of 10 different Mediterranean spreads/dips/goodness. You have never ...Popular withFoodiesLocalVegetarian

Awesome, hidden speakeasy bar. Not open terribly late (definitely closes before 2am most nights), but worth the visit. The front is a junky looking taco place, but walk through to the door in the back and into a cozy hideaway with good cocktail service. There is usually someone at the door, but not always, so it can look very unassuming.Popular withTrendstersNightlifeLuxury

Our first night in Paris we stumbled across this charming cafe - the food is spot on and the service is friendly, if a bit slow at times. The escargot is especially good - and inexpensive when compared to more touristy restaurants. A solid value in my book. Try the duck or the sole muniere.
Ate dinner here our first night in Paris, was not disappointed. We walked right in and sat upstairs, no reservation. All the food items were good, especially the Causollet and Sole with truffle sauce.Popular withFoodiesLocalTrendsters
We came here for lunch and enjoyed a four hour extravaganza of Michelin starred dishes. The chef emphasizes vegetable although it is not vegetarian and plenty of protein is served. The tomato salad was beyond description is was so delicious. The tasting menu was extensive and intriguing. The prices, particularly for the a la carte dishes, were very expensive.Popular withFoodiesLuxuryVegetarian

Offering a unique, yet still Parisian, take on pastries, this 16th arrondissement shop features the work of French sugar sultan Phillippe Conticini and centers on a futuristic display case made of steel and blonde wood, where handcrafted treats sit atop refrigerated pieces of slate underneath glass capsules. The tarte Tatin, an upside-down fruit confection, is among the most popular sellers.Popular withFoodiesLocalTrendsters
