January: Our Top Five Restaurants in Paris

Le Comptoir Du Relais
L'Avant ComptoirAddress:  9, Carrefour de l’Odéon

You definitely need to call ahead, way ahead, for a reservation at Le Comptoir du Relais, but it’s so very worth it. They have a very creative menu with spins on traditional French food offered by Chef Yves Camdeborde. If you came to Paris for the food, you probably already have your reservations for this delectable restaurant, but if you just want to try something unique and authentic – make your reservations for this restaurant quickly! We highly recommend the fois gras and haricot vert salad, the brandade, and the charcuterie and beef cheek.

Bistrot Paul Bert

Bistrot Paul Bert

 

Address: 18, rue Paul Bert, 11e, Paris, 75011

The chef at this quaint and classic French cuisine restaurant came from a Michelin star restaurant called La Regalade. You can choose from a wide menu that changes very often, so if you are able to go multiple times – definitely do! However, if you can only dine once, choose from the three course menu.

Le Chateaubriand

Le Chateaubriand

Address: 129 Avenue Parmentier, 75011

In 2010 this bistro made the list of world’s best restaurant, and not without reason. You can order La Carte, but we highly recommend trying one of the chef’s daily creations off the fixed six course menu. Make sure to call ahead for reservations and dine in this friendly and warm Parisian restaurant.

L’as Du Falafel

L'as Du Falafel

Address: 34 rue des Rosiers

If you’re looking for the best falafel in Paris, nay in the world – definitely check this place out. It’s closed Friday and Saturday, but any other day you can drift up to the window and order or go inside and eat (just 2 eu more than eating outside). We highly recommend trying the falafel with everything: HUmmus, 2 types of cabbage, tzatziki, eggplant, spicy sauce, and falafel of course.

Berthillon

Berthillon

Address: 31 Rue St Louis en l’ile

If your looking for something sweet after all that good Parisian food, don’t miss the Berthillon – Paris’s best ice cream! Located near the Notre Dame, stop in and choose from over 60 flavors. You can’t go wrong!
