What’s New | Fall 2015
As the leaves turned beautiful colors of yellow and orange this fall, we spent less time outside and more time inside eating our way through some of Paris’ newest dining and drinking spots! From healthy juices and bagels to market-fresh fish and super creative ingredients to re-visiting some of France’s most traditional dishes, there is a restaurant for every palate and every occasion this Fall.
Here are some of our favorites from the past few months that I am sure will warm your stomachs and souls as the temperatures continue to drop over the next few weeks!
Shakespeare & Co Cafe37 rue de la Bûcherie, 75005 Paris
The coffee, juice and culinary genius behind Bob’s Juice brands has taken over the space next to the legendary Shakespeare & Co bookshop on the left bank. This literary-themed coffeeshop is open every day for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon pick-me-up. Serving up fresh juices, bagels, sandwiches, coffee and a whole lot of love and comfort, this is the perfect hideaway from the bustling streets of Paris or a great spot to sit down with a good book!
UPTOWN18 rue Francœur, 75018 Paris
Located in the heart of Montmartre’s winding streets, this cheerful new spot serves up creative small plates to share in their very New York-style dining room. Owned by three charming (and adorable) young French restauranteurs who bring a smile to the service, Uptown is open for dinner and even a gastronomic Sunday brunch. The rustic wooden tables are made from the bases of old French sewing machines which we love and the delicious food is accompanied by a lovely selection of cocktails and wines from around the world.
The newest from chef Daniel Rose of Spring, La Bourse et La Vie brings it back to the traditional French bistro-style conviviality that has all but disappeared from Parisian restaurants. With an incredible A La Carte menu serving up classics and a tempting wine selection, LBLV presents dishes “a l’ancienne” like their famed pot-au-feu, fois gras and steak-frites, and, our personal favorite, the fried quail with herb butter. This is the spot if you’re looking for that open, welcoming environment where you’ll lose track of time becoming friends with the chef or enjoying French wines with the sommelier.
Salt6 rue Rochebrune, 75011
Located just of the charming Square Gardette in the heart of the 11th arrondissement, Salt is the creation of the Britishmen behind the Express Bar and Australian Abigail Snellgrove who heads the front-of-house. Walking into Salt, you receive a lovely warm welcome from the staff and their passion for seasonal, fresh ingredients translates into the menu. A largely fish-heavy focus, beautiful plates are artfully churned out of the open kitchen with flavors influenced by Chef Daniel Morgan’s travels to Japan, Sweden, Denmark and India. Pair your courses with natural wines or artisanal beers or some of their lovely eco-juices and teas. There is a very reasonable lunch menu and even a charming private dining table for eight downstairs.
