I’ve been waiting for Cyril Lignac’s cocktail bar Dragon to open on Rue du Dragon on the Left Bank. It’s exactly what the neighborhood needs – a place to go for a craft cocktail that isn’t a hotel bar.
Lapérouse is one of the oldest restaurants in Paris and surely one of the most storied thanks to its private salons – it isn’t called the “Maison de Plaisirs” for nothing. I’d been dying to try Lapérouse for quite some time and its recent renovations finally pushed me over the edge to get there.
Dumbo is hands down the Best Burger in Paris. Period. Game over. No questions asked. In fact, I think it might be the Best Burger I’ve ever had anywhere.
I think I walked by Le Gévaudan at least 500 times before I tried it. I’ve eaten everywhere else on Rue du Bac so I don’t know what took me so long. This summer I noticed they were redoing the interior which peaked my interest. I made a mental note to try it.
One of the best parts about living in Paris and France for a foodie like myself is all of the weekly open-air markets. Marché Raspail is “mine,” since it’s the closest to my apartment. And it makes shopping for food a dream.
