You wouldn’t expect a restaurant named Chang to serve Thai food, but it does, and it is very good Thai food indeed. And it makes a nice change in Paris’s Little Tokyo (roughly the area between Opéra and the Palais … Read More

The last time I went to Pharamond, many years ago, the food was very good and a tad expensive, and the place, with its beautiful Art Nouveau decor, was nearly empty. Now that it has new owners, it is called … Read More

The French word “borné” means “narrow-minded” or “blinkered,” but let’s give it a kinder translation: “having a one-track mind,” in this case, focusing on good food. It doesn’t really matter, however, since this new restaurant’s name is just a jokey … Read More

It’s a well-known fact (I think) that inhaling the salt air by the sea is not only good for you but also makes you feel great. And, as I discovered when I ate lunch at the Oyster Club the other … Read More

Chef Sylvain Sendra has traced quite an itinerary through Paris. He started out in a pocket-sized bistro, Le Temps au Temps, on the Rue Paul Bert in the 11th arrondissement. “Discovered” by Parisian foodies, it soon outgrew its small space, … Read More

Paris Update Favorite

Everybody likes a museum café, but the name doesn’t really cover the super-sized Les Grands Verres at the Palais de Tokyo. With its cavernous space, it should be lovable, not just likable, and it is, far more so than its … Read More
