Paris Restaurants: Epicerie Musicale

Epicerie Musicale had me even before I pushed open its door. Walking down the quai de Valmy looking for it, I heard groovy soul music wafting out of a door. Of the numerous Paris restaurants in the Canal Saint […]

Paris Restaurants: Ma Kitchen

There is no lack of eateries in the rue du Faubourg Poissonnière quartier. The street itself is a long row of bistros (notably Richer and Albion) and cozy sandwich joints, as well as Big Fernand and Little Fernand […]

Paris cafés: food at Ten Belles

Paris Cafés: Ten Belles

It used to be that finding good coffee in Paris cafés was like hitting the jackpot: when you found one, you’d want to hug the stranger next to you and run into the street, shouting out for all within earshot that here, here was decent coffee to be found! You might even have come to lower your standards and accept the baffling phenomenon of bad coffee in Paris as a fait accompli. It’s as if Paris cafés are places to see and be seen, dawdle over your paper, catch up with your girlfriend—but you mustn’t pay attention to what’s actually in your cup.

Paris Restaurants: Paris–New York

There are a few sacrifices one has to make in order to fulfill one’s dreams of living in Paris. Sometimes it may not be an actual sacrifice but a simple trade. When my family moved here, I had to trade big, juicy […]

Ekyog, a stock store in the 10th Arrondissement in Paris

Paris Fashion: Stock Stores in the 10th

Paris isn’t Paris without fashion. A walk down the street is a runway experience in itself. A lover of fashion, and especially Paris fashion, I’m infatuated with the style of this city. Being passed by one chic Parisian after another, I can’t help but lust after the high fashion tempting me at every corner. But since couture isn’t always in my budget, I was lucky enough to stumble upon the wonderful world of stock stores. In the 10th Arrondissement, there are a handful of outlets for fabulous French designers, which offer discounts of up to 50 percent. These stock stores can solve all your fashion woes and bring the essence of Parisian style right to your wardrobe.

It’s hard to get excited about going to a Paris restaurant when you have to walk around a train station and over the tracks in pouring rain as I did last week when I went to Neva. Open just a year, Neva sits alone in a residential neighborhood just north of Gare St.-Lazare. Once I located the sole restaurant on the corner, I was relieved to open the door to find a modern, welcoming restaurant done up in warm hues of brown. I was intrigued to try the cooking of the chef, Béatriz Gonzales […]

Carre de cochon ibérique, an exquisite pork dish at Pierre Jancou's 10th Arrondissement Paris bistro Vivant Table

Vivant Table

It was with some trepidation that I ventured into Vivant Table to try Pierre Jancou’s recently updated Paris bistro. Vivant opened in April of 2011 to mostly rave reviews, but Girls’ Guide founder Doni Belau had a less-than-perfect experience when she dined there, with beyond poor service and inedible items on the plate. So I was curious to see where things would fall for me.

Pureed beet root topped with smoked heron at Pierre Sang Boyer, the Oberkampf Paris restaurant opened by French Top Chef winner Pierre Sang Boyer

Pierre Sang Boyer

Top Chef is as popular a television program in France as it is in the US, and as in the US, many contestants on France’s version of the show go on to open their own restaurants after all the media exposure. Such is the case for the Top Chef 2011 semifinalist, Pierre Sang Boyer, who just launched his first Paris restaurant.

Baked St.-Marcellin with honey sauce at the 5th Arrondissement Paris wine bar Le Porte-Pot

Le Porte-Pot

When it came time to find an appropriate place to celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau this year, I ran through my regular list of Paris wine bars. But no one was offering anything special for the occasion, so my friend and I ventured off list to a wine bar I had been meaning to try. This place was also pouring the young red wine fresh on the third Thursday of November, as tradition dictates.

The new Cantine du Troquet Dupleix, from Paris bistro wonderman Christian Etchebest

La Cantine du Troquet Dupleix

A good dining experience at a Paris brasserie means many things. Sometimes it’s simply breaking bread with a good friend and sharing some laughs. Sometimes an enjoyable dinner can be attributed to the people and energy there. And, of course, sometimes a good meal is a straight-up good meal with excellent food and service.

Bistrot Paul Bert, a classic Paris bistro in the 11th Arrondissement, is an address for all-parts eating and big appetites

Le Bistrot Paul Bert

I first visited Bistrot Paul Bert almost five years ago, and I’m delighted to report that little has changed since then—or even since the Girls’ Guide ran its first ode to this resto two years ago. (Guilty as charged! Just one visit is not enough.) Still packed, and as brash and belly-busting as ever, Paul Bert is one of my favorite Paris bistros. Facing several weeks away, I wanted to go for a last supper of sorts.

The historic, picture-perfect Hôtel du Nord

Paris Neighborhoods: Canal St.-Martin

I love ethnic dining in Paris, and I love exploring Paris neighborhoods even more, so as I was reading Barbra Austin’s article on bo bun at Le Petit Cambodge, in the 10th Arrondissement, I nearly ran out the door on an excursion that promised some excellent food and the chance to rediscover one of the trendiest, most vibrant Paris neighborhoods: Canal St.-Martin.
