Eat Your Way Through Paris
From chic cafes to unforgettable dining experiences
Located in the heart of Paris, Alcazar is the perfect place to start your night out on the town. With its marble tables, velvet sofas and greenery, this restaurant and cocktail bar is the epitome of Parisian chic. The cuisine here is not traditional, but a blend of modern flavors, seasonal cooking. and fresh ingredients: mushroom ravioli, salmon tataki, burrata and ceviche are all on the menu. After dinner, head upstairs where you’ll find a DJ and balcony bar.
Head to Holybelly for one of the best brunches in Paris, popular among both foreign tourists and locals alike. Not only do they serve great food and amazing coffee, you are always greeted with a big smile, making this the perfect place to start your day. They have two locations, both on Rue Lucien Sampaix, one at number 5 (pancakes, eggs & sides, daily specials, specialty coffee and craft beer) and one at number 19 (seasonal breakfast sharing plates, plats du jour, specialty coffee and natural wines).
Situated at the heart of the chic St.-Germain-des-Prés, Café de Flore is not just a well-known Parisian café, it’s a historic landmark. Founded in 1887, it became famous as a hangout for 1950’s-era writers and intellectuals such as Ernest Hemingway, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Pablo Picasso. The café offers classic French dishes for breakfast, lunch or dinner. When the weather’s nice, the patio is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a cappuccino.
If visiting the Louvre Museum is on your Parisian to-do list, then enjoying a yummy meal or refreshing cocktail at Le Café Marly should be as well. With an unbeatable view of the Louvre pyramid, the courtyard seating is ideal for catching your breath and people watching. The menu is pretty vast and has something for everyone. Your bill will include the incredible experience and ambiance so save this for one of your splurge meals!
If you’re planning a trip to Paris and want to eat at the hottest restaurant in the city, make sure to book your reservation three weeks in advance - we’re serious. Septime’s very cool and creative reputation makes it difficult to get into but is definitely worth the effort. The menu changes daily, always offering an ingredient-driven, modern take on French cuisine. Order Carte Blanche and have all your courses chosen for you by the chef - you won’t regret it!
Keep things deliciously simple and treat yourself to an unforgettable steak dinner at Le Relais de l’Entrecote. Since there is no menu, the only thing you have to think about is how you would like your steak cooked. Served with perfectly thin & crispy french fries or “frites”, you will enjoy your first helping and have your second helping wheeled out only when you’re ready. The steak sauce is a divine secret that no one has been able to replicate and will melt in your mouth. This was hands down our favorite Parisian dining experience.
A trip to Paris is not complete until you stop for some macarons. Stop at Ladurée for an authentic French experience. Macarons are the perfect treat for your trip home and a great souvenir for loved ones. Choose between unique classic flavors or try their more creative seasonal flavors.
Located right across from the Palais de Justice on your way to Notre Dame, Brasserie Les Deux Palais is an elegant, but affordable restaurant. It is the perfect spot for a cup of coffee or a light French meal. With outdoor seating right on the gorgeous Boulevard du Palais, you can enjoy the view and people watch at the same time.
Located on the Trocadero, this ultra-trendy brasserie is pricey, but the view is to die for. We recommend making a reservation at least a few weeks in advance so you can guarantee a table facing the Eiffel Tower on the beautiful terrace. You won't be disappointed with its delicious seafood either. We recommend the lobster linguine with tomatoes and herbs.
