Le Zingam

It appears to be run by bike messengers,” was what a friend said of charming, wood-paneled épicerie and greengrocer Le Zingam when it opened by Voltaire in 2014. And lo, indeed it is. But who says bike messengers can’t also have impeccable taste and wallet-friendly

Café Oberkampf

This tiny café on a small street just off the rue Oberkampf perpetually has a crowd of young people lingering outside. They’re all waiting to snag one of just a dozen seats before the daily supply of Shakshuka runs out. The Lost in Cheeseland sandwich, named after

Paris Restaurants That Are Good for Groups

In Paris, where restaurants are tiny and can sometimes contain only a handful of tables, dining en masse requires a certain level of strategy. If you’re trying to book dinner for a large group (more than six people) or are planning a special event, we’ve found a selection of restaurants that

Muscovado restaurant in Paris

Muscovado

We first discovered Quina Lon during her pastry chef days at Au Passage and then Martin. Her pastries, never too sweet and always utilizing the freshest ingredients, were evidence of time spent in some of the best kitchens in the world (Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Mugaritz).

Edible Saint-Germain

Unless you’re on an all-chocolate diet, this can be a frustrating food neighborhood. Prices are high, quality is questionable. But with a batch of new openings over the past year to add to our old favorites, we’re no longer stumped by the (frequently asked) question: “I’m staying in the 6th arrondissement. Where should I eat?”
