Sleigh bells ring, snow glistens, and Paris restaurants close. At least the vast majority of them do, between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day. To help you find a place to celebrate, we’ve compiled a schedule […]
There’s a reason why our food tours have been celebrated by The New York Times (twice!), and knowledgable foodies like David Lebovitz and Ruth Reichl: we keep our group sizes tiny, we spend generously at the best shops in town, and we only work with expert guides who have devoted their lives to food & wine. […]
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?” […]

We collected the best examples of classic & creative interpretations, and invited a panel of food experts & enthusiasts to evaluate them in a blind taste test.
Between September-December 2014, we anonymously tested all nine of the Paris restaurants that hold three Michelin stars, along with seven others that are considered to be shining examples of haute cuisine.
Haute cuisine is not exclusively about what’s on the plate. Elaborately choreographed service, the spectacular number of dishes, the depth of a wine cellar and sumptuous surroundings – these are arguably the elements that separate restaurants with two […]

Long a favorite among students, the bustling “Beer Academy” is a worthwhile stop for any enthusiast of Belgian beer. Food is served at all hours of the day, and the two large patios are covered and heated in the winter. […]
Boasting the very best selection of craft beers on tap in Paris, as well as a bottle collection that brings the total offer up to 150 different beers, La Fine Mousse is certainly one of the city’s most well-stocked beer bars. It’s also one of the most expensive. French craft beers share real estate with lesser-known Belgians and German brews, with room left over for the USA, the Netherlands, and less-represented places like Norway and Italy to show off their brewing prowess. […]
