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.
The first time I went to Jean-François Piège’s Clover Grill was because my friend requested a place with a great burger, fries, mashed potatoes and atmosphere. Clover Grill had been on my list for a while and luckily we were able to make a last minute reservation at the bar.
One of the best discoveries I’ve ever made here is El Nopal – real Mexican food in Paris. In 2012 a fellow Texan told me about the restaurant run by people from Monterrey, Mexico and ever since it’s been a go-to restaurant.
I’ve had Cyril Lignac’s Aux Prés on my list for a while and after trying it last night I’m in love. It has everything I look for in a restaurant – a wonderful menu, a manageable size, friendly staff, a cozy atmosphere, and a great margarita.
My parents first took me to Le Voltaire in 2012 before I started my semester abroad in Paris. I remember the experience vividly for two reasons. First, it took us 45 minutes in a taxi to get from the Grand Palais to the restaurant…traffic. The second thing that I remember is there was only one other couple in the restaurant, also Americans, because we had dinner at 7:30 PM.
