10th Arrondissement:

Les Enfants Perdus, 9 Rue des Récollets: Great decor, excellent food, close to the canal Saint Martin. Have the Foir gras, and the Côte de Veau and think of me. Phone:+33 1 81 29 48 26

11th Arrondissement:

Clown Bar, 114 Rue Amelot: Daily menu of tapas (small plates, not the spanish ones) with super interesting combinations is served unceremoniously by the very friendly staff. Make sure to book. Phone:+33 1 43 55 87 35

Al Taglio, 2 bis Rue Neuve Popincourt: Serving Roman style pizza Al Taglio (by the slice), this is a great place for a pit stop before going out for a drink in one of Oberkampf’s infamous bars.

Les Parisiennes, 17 Avenue de la Motte-Picquet: Charming Neighbourhood Bistrot, with consistent food and a hefty menu, making it a great place for groups. It’s a good idea to share one of my favourite dishes, the Coquillettes, a mac and cheese with a hint of truffle oil that is to die for. Phone:+33 01 47 05 07 37
