It’s always a good sign when restaurants run out of dishes, and if you get to Philou late, you may see a line or two of the blackboard menu has been rubbed out. Luckily, everything here is good, though the restaurant is particularly well known...More

I just finished dinner on a quiet Saturday night in Paris. I think it’s important to give background on me so a good review has context. I am a foodie and amateur gourmet cook. I’ve eaten from 5stars to no stars all over the world....More

I first went here some five or six years ago and was knocked out by the quality of the cooking. At that time it was surfing on the back of a laudatory review in the NYT and was full just about every evening, especially with...More

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
