Take a look at some of my favorite spots organized by neighborhood





The eastern edge of the 17th arrondissement, the Batignolles neighborhood is home to a growing food and wine scene. Steps from Place de Clichy, this hidden gem of a neighborhood is easily accessible yet retains its local charm.



Full of energy and action day and night, Pigalle boasts an impressive line-up of craft cocktail bars, natural wine bars, no-frills dive bars, and restaurants running the gamut from classic French to SoCal BBQ to Mexican and more. 



Montmarte's steep and winding roads beg to be strolled and are full of bakeries, boutiques, and charm. My favorite pizza joint in all pf Paris is hidden behind the Sacre Coeur, down the hill where tourists rarely wander.



Palais Royal


In the 11th arrondissement, Charonne is the heart of the booming natural wine movement in Paris. You can't walk half a block without stumbling upon another gem of a watering hole.

Between the Louvre and Opera Garnier, Palais Royal boasts one of Paris's most beautiful gardens, excellent eats, and a mini Japantown - the go to neighborhood for a steaming bowl of ramen.

Loved by tourists and locals alike, Saint-Germain is a bustling, Left Bank neighborhood with no shortage of shopping, excellent spots to eat and drink, and a handful of old movie theaters.
