  • Eating out in Paris:
  • There are thousands of restaurants to choose from in Paris; as well as plenty of French restaurants, there are hundreds of Italian restaurants, pizzerias, Vietnamese restaurants, and restaurants serving food from just about every country in the world.  There are also interesting French regional restaurants, serving traditional regional dishes.
    There are restaurants all over Paris, because Paris is very much a lived-in city. The best concentrations of top-class restaurants in Paris are near  the Champs Elysees, in the 8th, 16th and 17th arrondissements, where there are a good number of Michelin starred restaurants. For more affordable eating, and plenty of choice and atmosphere,  try the small streets in the Latin quarter (5th and 6th districts), or on the Ile St. Louis.   For the best oriental cuisine, go to the Paris Chinatown, south from the Place d’Italie in the 13th.
