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.
High-end Chefs Go Casual
Now you can sample the cuisine of celebrated local chefs by visiting their walk-in wine bars. Braden Perkins eases his elegant culinary style at Verjus’s downstairs bar (47 Rue de Montpensier), where groups share small plates of succulent pork belly and veggie dumplings. This fall, chef Pierre Jancou, shown, reopens Vivant (43 Rue des Petites Écuries). Next door, Vivant Cave will serve charcuterie, daily specials such as rabbit and andouillette, and natural wines.
