3 meals in Paris, France
Owner of Translationsrule, Sarah Rule, recommends three great places to eat in the gourmet city:
151 bis rue marcadet, 75018 Paris
This gem of a place is a short stroll from Sacre Cœur and the bustling streets around Montmartre. Popular with locals at lunchtime, La Baignoire offers phenomenal food and fantastic value. The 13.50 euro daytime three-course menu is unbelievable value for the quality and quantity of delicious food on offer. The evening set menu (25€) is also exceptional value and well worth a phone call to make sure you get a table.
Palais de Tokyo, 13 avenue President Wilson, 75016 Paris
For modern cuisine with a twist try Tokyo Eat, the Stéphane Maupain designed art-space restaurant inside the Palais de Tokyo. Delicious food with Asian and French influences is served from an open kitchen to a hungry crowd of locals and tourists alike. There are always a few surprises and unusual combinations to try but with so much variety on the menu there is definitely something for everyone!
L'Ile St Germain, 170 quai Stalingrad, 92130 Issy Les Molineaux
Just outside the city centre, L'Ile is the ideal venue for a special occasion dinner in Paris. The restaurant is set in a magnificent building with décor in-keeping with its history and heritage. The roaring open fires make this a cosy destination on winter evenings and the food will not disappoint. The menu and the wine list are extensive and the service is exceptional. L'Ile is also a superb spot for brunch at the weekend.
