capitale, Paris

[UPDATE: As of December 2022, Capitale is now closed.] The Paris dining scene continues to change and evolve. The pandemic changed where we ate, and how we ate…at least for a while.

some favorite Paris Restaurants, Bistros, Bars & Bakeries

Not a day goes by when I don’t get a message requesting a restaurant recommendation in Paris. (Curiously, I also get asked for restaurant recommendations in cities I’ve never lived in, or even visited.) My promise to you is that I’ll only write up or recommend places I’ve been to, and with apologies to all who’ve asked for restaurant recommendations on social media, if I…
