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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Café Charlot is a great place to hang in Paris and people watch. The food is classic brasserie, and the crowd is neighborhood and expats.

Famous for their buckwheat crepes from Brittany, Breizh Cafe is a perfect affordable lunch in the Marais.
A solid, traditional brasserie in the 16th, Le Stella is good any night of the week, but it’s especially useful because it’s open on Sundays.
