Les Climats

Worth a trip for the gorgeous terrace alone (at lunchtime only). The excellent all-Burgundy wine list and fresh, albeit somewhat underseasoned, modern French dishes don’t hurt either. […]

Bistrot Belhara

A recent visit didn’t live up to the hype in which Thierry Dufroux’s Basque-inflected bistrot was declared “one of the revelations of 2013.” With the exception of a vanilla millefeuille with fresh strawberries, every dish […]

Debauve & Gallais

Sulpice Debauve was the chocolatier to Marie Antoinette, and you’ll pay a queen’s ransom for a box of her preferred pistoles. She ate them as medicine, and this shop retains its original apothecary display case. A Paris chocolate landmark. […]
