Eat Where The Parisians Do

Tuesday, April 21, 2009


Looking for one of Paris’s best neighborhoods to satisfy your hunger? Then head to where the locals head, the quartier d’Aligre in the 12th arrondissement, as described here by Budget Travel.

High on street markets (Marché d’Aligre, Marché Beauveau) and low on pretension, you can find three-Michelin star chefs like Fabrice Le Bourdat at Le Bristol who “rises every morning at 2 to make his famous millefeuille and iced madeleines for late morning customers. While . . . his cheerful wife Céline will help you choose between a buttery croissant or white chocolate brioche”

Close by is La Gazzetta, Swedish chef Peter Nilsson’s Italian-inspired restaurant serving a 30-duro prix-fixe menu, a popular hangout for locals and pets alike.
