  1. Hi Phil! There have been plenty of new openings in the last year in the 15th and in Saint-Germain (left bank), but it’s true that the right bank – especially the 10th and 11th have been booming for several years now. In the next month, lots of new things will open on the rue de Richelieu in the 1st. You’re right that rents in eastern Paris are much expensive, and yes, I do think that has a lot to do with why new places are opening in these neighborhoods. It’s also, perhaps, a reflection of where the chefs and staff are themselves living. There’s also perhaps a bit of bias in our reviewing. I live in the 19th and it takes me an hour to get to some parts of the 15th, so a place has to be pretty darn good (or the reviews thereof) to get me to cross town for it. I’m sure the feeling is mutual for friends who live in the 15th. Within the whole group of contributing editors for Paris by Mouth, only two live on the far more expensive left bank. And so while we do try to cover the entire city, we know our own neighborhoods better. However, I’d disagree with the age distinction – I don’t think many of these new openings are catering to a young (which usually means broke) demographic. The proliferation of small plates places in recent year may result in more young/broke people being able to participate, but the result is a very mixed demographic and I think that’s a welcome thing.

  2. It seems that most of the new restaurants are opening up on the Right Bank. Several years ago, the 15th was the hot area for new restaurants. Shortly afterwards, the neighborhood around Rue Daguerre in the 14th was the “it” place. Now, the 11th Arrondissement appears to be the spot for burgeoning chefs. This can’t be motivated simply by lower rental costs. What gives?

    In addition, all the “hot” restaurants and bars appear to cater to a young demographic. Don’t people over forty go out to eat, drink, and have a good time?

  3. For those who appreciate French terroir restos, I think Le Petit Pan (across the street from Le Grand Pan) also opened in 2013. In contrast to the Grand Pan with its large meat dishes, their sister antenna, Le Petit Pan offers smaller dishes that average around 5 euros each. It’s lovely to sit at the laidback bar with a friend and share six or seven dishes, accompanied by a nice selection of wines by the glass or bottle.
