You can drink wine made in Paris (though we wouldn't exactly recommend It)
Paris actually produces its own wine, called Clos de Montmartre, made from grapes harvested in the Montmartre district. The tiny garden can yield up to 1,300 bottles of wine a year, which are sold to benefit social programs in the neighborhood. While we’re all for charities (and for going local), we’d generally recommend sticking with Burgundy or Bordeaux when it comes to your red wine selection -- this stuff isn’t always drinkable.
Jim Haynes hosts the original meet-up
While Paris offers plenty of opportunities for trendy food tours and dining experiences, Jim Haynes’ Sunday night dinners have been the low-profile, classic version since the 1970s. While English-speakers sometimes find their way to Haynes’ dinners through some guidebooks, the dude isn’t even on TripAdvisor or Twitter. We can confirm that he exists, though -- and that this meeting is worth checking out.
