Located in the 9th, this tapas resto serves small plates that are not of the Spanish variety, rather, they cook up their food with a French gastronomic touch with international fusion.
Les Enfants Rouges is unique in the fact that it's a French fare resto with a Japanese chef, and boy does it work. Come by for some salmon filets in beef bouillon and order from their extensive wine list.
This large space serves all French fare all the time and you can order breakfast, lunch, or dinner to that effect. Looking for something super-French? Get the horse steak with grilled bacon.
This cafe with an Art-Deco design serves up classic French fare using only fresh ingredients and produce, and there is plenty of foie gras and charcuterie for your French fix.
This resto has a casual Parisian bistro feel to it and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. And the best part? (other than not losing limbs) They don't take reservations so you can just pop in at a moment's notice.
Seafood lovers in Paris rejoice. The name, of course, is a reference to the tomato juice drink that you'll often find in your Bloody (concocted here with clam juice), and the fact that it has a killer bar in addition to great ocean grub should have you running to get here.
Bronco doles out legit 'Merican food, such as gourmet burgers, and on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, there's a DJ so you can rock out while you chow down.
Located in the 10th, this resto is perfect for breakfast (we're talking classic bacon and eggs breakfast), and they have a wicked coffee to boot.
This resto serves up Franco-Asian fare made by the fabulous Chef Yoshi Morie. They source their ingredients from some of the best purveyors in the country and the focus of the wine menu is "natural".
