13 Rue des Petits Champs, 75001 Paris, France
Opened in 1980, Willi's, with its bright blue facade, is a fixture in the 1st arrondissement. This French wine bar, which is actually owned by an Englishman, is perhaps most famous for its wine-themed posters, which are commissioned each year and...
5 Rue du Nil, 75002 Paris, France
Frenchie (the restaurant) is nearly impossible to get into, but the wine bar across the street provides a taste of chef Gregory Marchand’s housemade charcuterie and pasta, as well as small plates such as homemade smoked trout and burrata cheese...
13 Rue de Charonne, 75011 Paris, France
There’s nothing flashy or trendy about this Bastille-area bistro—just solid French fare served in a traditional setting. The decor is warm and cozy—wood chairs, white tablecloths and golden-yellow walls lined with vintage photos...
99 Av. des Champs-Élysées, 75008 Paris, France
There’s perhaps no better place for watching the well-heeled than from the terrace of this classic brasserie, which fronts both Avenue George V and the Champs-Elysées. Fouquet’s has occupied this prime corner spot since 1899, hosting movie stars...
6 Rue de la Grange Batelière, 75009 Paris, France
Passages were designed in the 19th century to give Parisians protection from muddy streets and horse-drawn vehicles. Some 20 of these covered walkways remain today, including the Passage Verdeau; they are an excellent way to journey back into...
10 Place de l'Opéra, 75009 Paris, France
The Palais Garnier, the national opera house of Paris, is a magnificent building dripping in ornate details and glittering with gold. The five-ton chandelier, made famous in The Phantom of the Opera, still takes center stage in the auditorium. It...
18-20 Rue Coquillière, 75001 Paris, France
This cramped and crowded temple to cookware is where Julia Child shopped, which might surprise you given how no-frills it is. Creaky floorboards, bad lighting and a basement haphazardly crammed with copper pots and pans is hardly a...
99 Rue Saint-Antoine, 75004 Paris, France
Locals queue up for delicious cheeses from this fromagerie, whose namesake owner received a Meilleur Ouvrier de France, the country's highest honor for a craftsperson (in this case, for his skills as a master of cheese). Aged Comté is king...
32 Rue Notre Dame des Victoires, 75002 Paris, France
At his éclair-focused shop in the Marais, Christophe Adam presents riffs on traditional recipes in eye-popping colors and exotic flavors. You may be tempted by the best-selling Chocolat Grand Cru, but don’t overlook the more off-beat seasonal...
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...
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...
76 Rue de Seine, 75006 Paris, France
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...
