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?” […]

Edible Marais

With excellent shopping, unique art & architecture and a vibrant gallery scene, the Marais attracts a huge number of visitors. There are some outstanding food & wine options within this maze of fashionable streets, and we’ve selected our favorites for you here. […]

Special Report on Haute Cuisine

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. 

The 20 Best Bites of Haute Cuisine in Paris

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 […]

A la Bière Comme à la Bière

“Boissons vivantes & épicerie funk” announces the tagline on this small, brightly decorated storefront. Inside, you’ll find nearly 200 different bottled craft beers from Europe and North America, many kept chilled for immediate consumption. The […]

Le Bouillon Belge

Lots and lots of different beers, served inexpensively and without pretense – that’s the draw at this welcoming, convivial bar in the far reaches of Eastern Paris. The selection is predominantly Belgian, as the name […]

Les Trois 8

Revolutionary for Paris, this shoebox-sized bar just north of the lively Oberkampf district has a lot to offer lovers of craft beer… and their natural wine-drinking friends, too. French beer is well-represented both on the […]

Bièrissime

Situated in the increasingly lively Marché Saint Quentin, this shop is home to a wide variety of French and international craft beers, with particularly good selections from Italian and English breweries. Prices are very fair, […]

Académie de la Bière

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. […]

La Fine Mousse

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. […]

Brewberry

A true beer geek’s paradise, Cécile Delorme’s shop near the tourist- and student-friendly rue Mouffetard stocks hundreds of different beers from traditional Belgian and German to cult favorite Danish and Norwegian. […]

Le SuperCoin

Far off the beaten path, this place is one of Paris’ very best beer bars. The three rotating taps include two French craft beers and one bière ordinaire, and the bottle menu presents five pages of small-production craft beers brewed in France. […]

Berthillon

If you have only one ice cream cone in Paris, make sure it comes from Berthillon, the long-standing grande dame of glaces. The tea salon is worth a visit, too. […]

La Moustache Blanche

Hipster beer geekiness pervades this shop just off the Place de la Bastille, with a record player spinning the blues, a faux phone box housing the English beers, and a periodic table of beer styles on the wall. Prices are very fair, and Guillaume, the friendly young owner is rightly proud of his ever-growing collection which boasts 500 beers from all over the world. […]

Paris St-Bière

An alimentation génerale turned beer shrine, this tiny shop still carries convenience food alongside its floor-to-ceiling shelves of good beer. A refrigerated case promises cold beer to go, and the shop is open until very late on weeknights, just in case. […]

Peoples Drug Store

With a host of international beers, a speedy bottle-chilling machine, and a row of chess tables at patrons’ disposal, Guillaume Lucas’ shop is a welcome addition to the rue des Martyrs. A good place to pick up something on the way to a party or picnic, but you can also pass a few hours here, playing chess and sipping quality beer. […]
