The world's most visited city isn't resting on reputation. Paris's strongholds of culture and gastronomy continue to evolve. Top chefs are opening casual new wine bars, and pastry wizards are folding exotic ingredients into their dough. Parisbymouth.com writer Meg Zimbeck takes us on a tour.
A Different Side of Paris
The streets radiating from rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis are booming with destination restaurants and bars. This isn't postcard Paris, but it's a lively (chaotic but safe) reflection of the diversity found in France today. Mixed in among the African hair salons, Turkish kebab stands, and cheap joints for Moroccan couscous are a growing number of great restaurants including Albion, a recent opening by two Brits that has won the hearts of French critics.
