Paris Restaurants: Le Garde Temps

There has been a lot of chatter in Paris and New York about the neighborhood just south of Pigalle. The words ruin and hipsters were thrown about. People were insulted, lengthy articles were […]

Paris Restaurants: Le Pont de Yunnan

Every morning when I look out my window at the park below, I see clusters of Chinese women doing some sort of cross between jazzercise and tai chi. While it looks a bit ridiculous against the backdrop of […]

The 9th Arrondissement is becoming quite the food mecca, with dozens of new Paris restaurants continuing to open each year.

Patatas bravas at Sergi Arola's new Spanish tapas spot, Restaurant Arola, at the W Hotel in the 9th Arrondissement of Paris

Restaurant Arola

The newest spot in town, the W Hotel, brought the crème de la crème of all my favorite regions of the world together under one roof at the new Restaurant Arola, named after the Catalan chef-owner, Sergi Arola.

Shrimp dumplings at Pacifique, a Chinese restaurant with an exhaustive menu in the Belleville neighborhood of Paris.

Le Pacifique

I hit Paris bistro saturation last weekend, and found myself in need of some new flavors and a new environment, so I ventured out to Belleville for a taste of their little Chinatown.

Chinese immigrants settled in the Belleville area in the 1920s, and you’ll see their influence up and down rue de Belleville, mixed in with African, Jewish, Greek and Armenian cultures.

Bouillon Chartier

Chartier is more than a Paris brasserie; it’s a piece of the city’s history. When Chartier opened in 1896, the idea was to offer local workers a decent, affordable meal. And in more than a century, not much has changed. Today you can get your daily soup for 1 euro, along with French classics such as choucroute or lentils with pork for less than 10 euros.

Les Affranchis

When I’m walking around Paris, I’m always amazed at the number of bistros on every corner and everywhere in between. I wonder how they can all stay in business, and I’m equally curious when I continue to see new spots opening on a very regular basis. Les Affranchis recently joined the bevy of Paris bistros giving it a go in this city.

On the chefs’ side is a solid pedigree […]

The charcuterie plate at Le Pas Sage, a neighborhood bistro in the 2nd Arrondissement of Paris

Le Pas Sage

I love the many passages of Paris. There are the ones that silently slide off major streets, revealing hidden gems under colorful, covered galleries. Then there’s the growing number of notable restaurants that share the name, like the Michelin-starred Passage 53, and the eclectic back-alley Au Passage. Now there’s Le Pas Sage, a relaxed neighborhood bistro located on the attractive passage du Grand Cerf and the sometimes sketchy rue St.-Denis.

Hit La Chambre aux Oiseaux, a café full of vintage charm in the 10th Arrondissement of Paris, for a sandwich or pastry and coffee

La Chambre aux Oiseaux

La Chambre aux Oiseaux is a Paris café with heart and a history to match. Léna, one of the owners, grew up in a haberdashery owned by her mother where vinyls spun on the record player and delicious smells constantly floated out of the kitchen where her grandmother baked. Léna’s partner, Hervé, enjoyed a similar childhood. His mother and his father (a baker) instilled in him their interest in decor and lovely little knickknacks.

Sesame tofu salad at Rose Bakery, a Paris tea salon in the 9th Arrondissement

Rose Bakery

This adored Paris tea salon, bakery and organic canteen put rue des Martyrs on the food lover’s map when it opened in 2002. South Pigalle was conquered by carrot cake and crumbles baked by (gasp!) an Englishwoman.

When you're ready to ditch the foie gras, try the piquant handmade-noodle soup at Les Pâtes Vivantes in Paris

Les Pâtes Vivantes

“You saved our lives,” said a friend in New York, just back from a trip to Paris. “We got sick,” she continued, “and that noodle place was exactly what we needed.”

The noodle place in question? The 9th Arrondissement’s Les Pâtes Vivantes.

This neighborhood bistro in the 9th—on a wonderful stretch of food real estate that includes Vivant and L’Orient d’Or—has been a Foodie Fave once before. But recently it got a slight makeover, plus an infusion of American blood in the kitchen, and I’d heard good things.

L’Orient d’Or, a go-to Chinese restaurant in Paris, in the 9th Arrondissement

L’Orient d’Or

L’Orient d’Or has become my favorite Chinese restaurant in Paris, a go-to spot when my friends and I are looking for something delicious and fun that won’t break the bank.

Chinese cuisine is, of course, deeply regional, and the cooking at L’Orient d’Or is Hunanese, relying heavily on the use of chilies for seasoning. It’s not for the timid.
