by Travelling Peach

1. Coretta
Recommended by:
Amandine Chaignot, Executive Chef The Mirror Room Restaurant in Rosewood London Hotel.
Amandine says 'I love Coretta (on the 17th arrondissement). The chef, Beatriz Gomez, is one of my good friends and they serve great contemporary French cuisine.'

2. Street food on the 10th Arrondissement  
Recommended by:
Christian Le Squer, Executive Chef at Le Cinq, Paris. 
Christian says 'I love street food, especially on the 10th arrondissement. Culturally, the community is home to a very wide variety of people so you can find so many interesting and tasty things to eat there… French, Moroccan… lots.'

3. Ida
Recommended by:
Simone Zanoni, Executive Chef at Le George, Paris.
Simone says 'It’s a very little restaurant called Ida. It’s owned by a friend of mine - an Italian guy called Denny Imbroisi - and there are only 25 seats. Denny’s brilliant. He’s ¾ Italian ¼ French and he makes the most beautiful Italian food. He does the best amatrichiana and his carbonara is mind-blowing. A very funny, very cool guy - and the restaurant has a great atmosphere.' 

 

4. Le Normandie 
Recommended by:
Christian Le Squer, Executive Chef at Le Cinq, Paris. 
Christian says 'Before I opened Le Cinq, which I adore, for 15 years I was at the helm of Le Normandie– one of the most beautiful restaurants in Paris. It was one of the most secret places in Paris too because not many people knew about it. Whilst I was there, I never did any media but the restaurant was always full of happy guests. It was an industry favourite and the critics loved it too. It was a very proud time for me and the food is brilliant. These days, more people do but it’s still an amazing place to dine. The atmosphere and food is incredible.'

5. La Marlotte
Recommended by:
David Bizet, Executive Chef at L’Orangerie, Paris.
David says 'I like La Marlotte - a French bistro on the 8th arrondissement. My friend owns it so I love spending time there when I can, both for the food and personally. I have some great memories there.' 

6. Chez L’Ami Louis
Recommended by: James Tyrrell, Head Chef at L’Escargot, London.
James says 'In Paris, an amazing place to go is Chez L’Ami Louis. To be honest, the food isn’t the best but it’s such a charming old-school French restaurant that I definitely recommend visiting it at least once to experience it for yourself. When you’re there, it’s almost as though time’s stood still. You go there and you have fois gras with enormous rustic pieces of fresh bread, the portions are so generous and it’s so friendly.' 

7 & 8. Clamato Restaurant & La Miguênne
Recommended by: Romain Meder, Executive Chef at Alain Ducasse Au Plaza Athénée, Paris.
Romain says 'Clamato restaurant in Paris is one of my favourite places to eat because it’s simple. They only serve fish and vegetables, and the food is always amazing. It’s not expensive and the staff and atmosphere are great. I also love La Miguênne.'

9. Le Prince de Galles
Recommended by:
Amandine Chaignot, Executive Chef The Mirror Room Restaurant in Rosewood London Hotel.
Amandine says 'If you’re looking for somewhere slightly more refined, Le Prince de Galles restaurant is always a great option.'
