Famous for their buckwheat crepes from Brittany, Breizh Cafe is a perfect affordable lunch in the Marais.
L’Ami Jean is a lively French bistro in the 7th, and it’s on the expensive side, but the food is excellent, exciting, and worth your time.
Papillon in the 17th is somewhat upscale but also relaxed, and while the menu here is constantly changing, we’ve yet to walk away disappointed.

At Frenchie Bar à Vins, the food is just as good as it is at the Frenchie across the street, but you can actually get in.
Ellsworth is a casual restaurant from the team behind Verjus, and it’s one of our favorites in Paris. Hit it for brunch, or for some fried chicken.
Au Deux Amis is an excellent late night spot in Oberkampf, which is where you’ll probably end up if you’re out late in Paris.
Le Comptoir should be on your radar, if only for the fact that you’ll probably end up in Saint-Germain at some point and you’ll probably end up hungry
Le Baratin is a bistro in the 20th that all the chefs in Paris love. Anthony Bourdain loves it too, but that’s not why to go. Go because it’s amazing.
Le Servan is of our favorite little bistros in all of Paris, and we’re not alone in that sentiment. Hit it for lunch and some unexpected flavors.
