1.  Chez Aline: Choose your own fillings or defer to chef Delphine Zampetti for a deceptively simple baguette sandwich at her petite, retro-flavored deli.
85 Rue de la Roquette, 75011,  T 33-1 43-71-90-75

2.Septime: Rustic wooden tables and an open kitchen give the space a farmhouse vibe; the menu of neo-bistro classics is both soulful and inventive.
80 Rue de Charonne, 75011,  T 33 1 43 67 38 29

3.L’Avant Comptoir: At this elbow-to-elbow, standing-room-only “hors d’oeuvres bar,” the bread basket is communal, but the foie gras skewers and boudin noir macarons are just for you.
3 Carrefour de l'Odéon  75006, T 33-1/44-27-07-97

4.Frenchie Wine Bar: Across from impossible-to-book Frenchie lies its edgy sibling, whose shared tables, 80’s rock playlist, and small plates (pulled pork on brioche) are all the rage.
5-6, rue du Nil 75002,  T 33

5. Bistrot Paul Bert: The classic Parisian bistro every carnivore dreams of, with knife-cut steak tartare, foie gras haricots verts, and, of course, a venerable steak frites.
18 Rue Paul Bert  75011 T 33

6.Café Constant: Two blocks from the Eiffel Tower, noted chef Christian Constant pays homage to his grandmother’s recipes at his casual, bi-level brasserie.
139 Rue Saint-Dominique  75007, T 33 1 47 53 73 34

7. Ten Belles: The new-wave coffee shop from rock-star barista Thomas Lehoux, whose cappuccinos are made with cult Telescope beans.
10 Rue de la Grange aux Belles  75010  
T+33 1 42 40 90 78

8. Glass: It’s all about creative cocktails, grilled hot dogs, and Brooklyn Brewery beer (!) at this South Pigalle nightspot, where a fashionable crowd mingles with chefs fresh off the line.
7 rue Frochot 75009
​T +33 (0)9 80 72 98 83
