Insider Tips
Local Tips around food
What is your best secret around food in your country?
  • Beatrice

    The maquereaux has reopened. This is a pleasing news. I discovered this seafood bar last summer on the banks of the Seine river (rive droite). It was initially a pop up restaurant. Their products are fresh, carefully sourced from local producers and organic. Next time I go I will book a cruise on the river with friends, oysters and champagne...what else ?

  • Alain

    I like shopping on the rive Gauche of the Seine, in Le Bon Marché, a chic department store for Parisians. Across the street, there is a Hermès boutique. This boutique used to be the swimming pool of the hotel Lutetia next door. In the back of the store there is a snacking corner: le plongeoir. I could stay there for hours with a book or just overlooking the place and the people. 

  • Guillaume

    I travel a lot but I never found a more authentic ice cream boutique than Berthillon on the Ile Saint Louis in Paris. I always pick pear, this is my favourite flavor. Sometimes I take a box to bring home. They put it in a special packaging that keeps the ice cream at the right temperature for a couple of hours. 

  • Adèle

    I like vintage so I often  go to the flee market, les puces de Saint Ouen, and after a look around I stop to have lunch at the restaurant La Cocotte. I pick the traditional dish of the day in the menu section "petits plats de grand-mère". After this gastronomic parenthesis I go back to my quest to find the next nugget.
