The great macaron debate may forever wage on but from the first time I tucked into a small box of Pierre Hermé's dimunitive cookies, perfectly crisp on the outside and melt-in-your-mouth soft on the inside, I knew I'd remain loyal to his...

29-31 Rue Saint-Louis en l'Île, 75004 Paris, France
There is no ice cream in the world like Berthillon’s. The mango ice cream tastes like frozen mangoes and the chocolate like frozen truffles. I particularly admire the fact that—in true French fashion—although it’s an ice cream store, it’s closed...

93 Rue du Bac, 75007 Paris, France
My favorite pastry shop in Paris! The place is gorgeous, and the treats delicious.

1 Rue de la Banque, 75002 Paris, France
Legrand Fille et Fils is a quintessentially old-Paris wine store; it’s well stocked, but not in the least bit pretentious. After a browse through their superb choice of wines, walk through the beautiful glass enclosed courtyard and check out their...

American owner Juan Sanchez runs this jewel of a store. He has a wonderful selection of wines from all major regions of France.

Save Place
37 Rue de Beaune, 75007 Paris, France
Madame Grateau designs the most amazing lines of dishes, glassware, and linens imaginable. She’s resisted the temptation to sell them internationally, so you have to visit the mecca in Paris. Her tableware is simple enough to use every day, but so...

14 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, 75008 Paris-8E-Arrondissement, France

Experience Parisian cheese the way it was meant to be experienced, out in the open and totally natural. The employees can help you pick a cheese that should be eaten that day or the next—and it's always perfectly ripe.

Just walk into Barthélémy and breathe the air. The cheese smells so different from cheese in the United States—that’s how you’ll know you’re in Paris. I love this store. Be sure to ask for tastes; the service is as good as the selection.

8 Rue Monge, 75005 Paris, France
Everyone wonders if Kayser is the next Poilâne. I say, they’re both extraordinary. I love the flute, a type of baguette that has lots of flavor.
Save Place
8 Rue du Cherche-Midi, 75006 Paris, France
Poilâne bread is considered to be the best in Paris, and it’s my favorite place in the city. They'll even FedEx their famous four-pound loaf to your door for only $35, including shipping. In my new book, there's a Camembert-and-prosciutto tartine...

Although the prices are outrageous, the food here is beyond delicious. As Patricia Wells says, “people beg, cry, weep for a table.” It’s a wonderful place for special occasions.

This is an exquisite international takeout shop. Order salmon and foie gras for a party or get a sandwich and a pastry and go down the block to eat it in the Luxembourg Gardens. On a cold day, we like to sit on a bench near the orangerie, and in...

Don’t let the cozy atmosphere of this place fool you—all of the food is simple, and elegantly prepared. It’s the essence of a chic Parisian restaurant, and it’s one of my favorite spots for fish in the city.

This was the market that made me want to live in Paris. On Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, bakers sell their own homemade breads and farmers have tables with their precious homegrown raspberries. Don’t miss the potato pancakes and the rotisserie...

30 Rue du Bourg Tibourg, 75004 Paris-4E-Arrondissement, France
If you like tea, then you must make a pilgrimage to Mariage Fréres, which has been open since 1854. They sell the most amazing teas (my favorites are Marco Polo and French Breakfast) along with teapots, cups, and tea paraphernalia. I recommend...

Chez Georges is perfect for traditional French food in an old fashioned setting. If you’re in the mood for herring and potatoes, beef bourguignon, and baba au rhum, this is the place.

Hédiard is full of old-world French food. I love serving their boxed cheese straws with a glass of champagne.

34 Rue de Richelieu, 75001 Paris, France
Husband and wife team Braden Perkins and Laura Adrian opened this restaurant in the “tres Brooklyn” style that’s so popular in Paris now. The food is of American influence, but is made with fabulous French ingredients. We love going here.

The architect named this impressive restaurant after his cat. While the menu offers are modern and delicious, the nighttime view of the Eiffel Tower is worth the price of admission alone.

JeanLuc Poujauran claims to have produced the first baguette made from organically grown wheat, It also happens to be one of the best in Paris, and his cakes and pastries are delicious.

Most locals point to Breizh Café in the Marais for the city's best crêpes but my loyalties lie with Chez Imogène, a tiny, no-frills restaurant in the 11th arrondissement. Traditional buckwheat galettes and sweet dessert crêpes take pride of place...

17 Rue Montorgueil, 75001 Paris, France
So, you think you know Paris? There are hundreds of memorable streets and boulevards in the City of Lights. But, for my money, Rue Montorgueil is the best. It is compact, only three blocks long, with a metro stop at each end. In between, you have...
