David Lebovitz (2014) “At boucherie Les Provinces, you won’t be blown away by the food, but you’ll have a good time, as we did, digging into our onglet steaks… While you likely won’t find Les Provinces listed in restaurant guides as a place to cross town for, I can’t think of a better way to spend a day in Paris than strolling around the Aligre market… before diving into a couple of steaks while knocking back a few glasses of red in the convivial atmosphere of boucherie Les Provinces.”

Dersou restaurant and cocktails from Taku Sekine and Amaury Guyot in Paris

Dersou

Maybe there’s a right way to do Dersou, one that involves sharing a sixty-day aged steak and a bottle of Crozes-Hermitage, as the happy couple next to us was doing at 11pm. We who had signed up from the tasting menu – offered for 90€ from 7:30-9pm, were less pleased. Chef Taku Sekine’s food – a series of five inventive, generous and mostly delicious plates, each paired by with a cocktail from barman Amaury Guyot, is not well-enough supported by an adolescent staff that seems to be more enthralled with their own vibe than with the banality of service. >> Read More

Raimo

Raimo is one of the oldest ice cream shops in Paris, and one of the best. Now with locations in the 5th and 4th, along with the original shop and tea salon in the 12th.

Pommier

Located just inside the covered market at Place d'Aligre, this little shop is easy to miss, nearly hidden behind its own refrigerated snack case. But it's a gem, with a solid assortment of Belgian, German, and French beers at very low prices.

Troll Café

This unassuming bar, tucked on a side street near the Marché d'Aligre, boasts an impressive collection of over 100 beers. The selection is largely Belgian and mostly in bottles, though the tap choices are above average.

Express de Lyon

Although it appears on first glance like any other train station-adjacent café-bar, this place is a must for serious beer geeks in Paris. Their rotating selection of taps includes kooky craft beers from all around Europe, as well as more well-known Belgians like Chouffe, Chimay and Leffe.

Japanese Knife Company

After 16 years in London, where it was hailed as a "shrine to the knife" (The Guardian) offering "the finest selection of culinary blades we have ever come across" (Financial Times) that is "awesome, amazing and the very best available" (The Wall Street Journal), the Japanese Knife Company established its first Paris shop in May 2014. With backing from a team that includes the owners of Au Passage and Bones, its already become a magnet for chefs to browse and buy knives (so far, we've spotted chefs from Verjus, Roseval, CheZaline) and for restaurants to get their kitchen and table knives sharpened (Le Servan and Septime, among others). Soon to come: sushi and butchery workshops, chef demonstrations, and other cutting edge (sorry) event

Au Coeur du Marché

This small fromager and affineur can sometimes get hidden by the all the hustle and bustle of market life just outside, but duck in. The quality is high, the service is friendly (and bilingual), and they will happily sous-vide (vacuum seal) your cheese for travel. Notable offerings include a wide selection of foreign cheeses (quite rare in Paris), goat milk yogurts, and a good variety of butters.

Atabula (2014) “Au programme: nappes épaisses, lourds couverts dans une ambiance mi populaire-mi bourgeoise. Comptez une vingtaine d’euros pour un menu qui fait la part belle aux terrines, rilettes, gibiers en saison, coq au vin, andouillette… Une jolie adresse dont on ferait volontiers sa cantine.”

Table Restaurant in Paris from Bruno Verjus | parisbymouth.com

Table

We stayed away from Table for quite some time, fearing that it would be terrible. With a food writer (Bruno Verjus) in the kitchen and seemingly unlimited funds for decor and product sourcing from the guy that founded L’Occitane, it seemed like the sort of place that would be long on concept, high on prices, and short on soul. In recent months, however, we’ve become devoted fans of the 3-course lunch for 25€. Prices are much higher at dinner, but the lunch is one of the best deals in town.
