Four places for demanding palates and not so common dates.

On our visit to Paris, we made a guide for food lovers with 4 places to visit. Where to eat in Paris? We start with Passager, 11th arrondissement; continuing with Astair, 2e arrondissement and Tigermilk, 2e arrondissement, and finally Le Baba, Le Marais.

“What’s that?” said Ron, pointing at a large dish of some sort of shellfish stew that stood beside a large steak-and-kidney pudding.
“Bouillabaisse,” said Hermione.
“Bless you,” said Ron.
“It’s French,” said Hermione.

PASSAGER

Brunch heaven is made of this.

café | 107 Avenue Ledru-Rollin | Tue-Sun
Passager is located a bit further from the city centre madness and that’s something we definitely enjoyed. The café is not too big or noisy. People were quietly enjoying their coffees while working on their laptops or nicely chatting. We saw the sky fall again from our window seats and ordered a complete brunch.

The day required an extra dose of energy since we were skipping lunch and going straight for the shootings. We managed to organize the day with a feast of smoothies, capuccinos, bagels and pancakes. Hats off to the best brunch we have ever had.

Passager located at 11th arrondissement, Paris. On images, the interiors.

Astair

Savoir vivre à la française.

Astair sets the perfect example on how to reformulate a classic Parisian brasserie and succeed. We had never met a nicer staff or a better combination of dishes and wines. The menu is signed by the prestigiuos Gilles Goujon, the three Michelin stars chef, and the interiors are brilliantly thought by the great interior designer, Tristan Auer. We were mesmerized by this true french atmosphere, the table sets and the smooth soundtrack playing. The food itself did not dissapoint, I can assure we enjoyed every bit of it while toasting for more Paris in the near future with a glass of Riesling.

19 Passage des Panoramas.
Astair is placed inside of a beautiful gallery filled with some other amazing restaurants and very close to Lafayette and the Opera. Consider it wheter it rains or not.

Our favourite.
Though it is not an easy decision, the burrata salad with different types of tomatoes stole our hearts and palates for good. Please, don’t think that is too simple to order and make sure you include it in your order.

“Modern chic meets good old french cuisine”

Astair is situated on a boulevard. For theater fans, you can find the Theater des Variétés just beside. 

Tigermilk

Latin flavours in Paris.

Latin Oasis.
If your last sight of the day was the Sacre Couer and you are still coming down from the narrow streets of Montmatre, maybe the perfect way to conlude the day is Tigermilk.

Tigermilk is the perfect place to try some Latin food in an elegant designed local of Paris. Casual atmosphere and super friendly service. If you are looking for a place to take your friends, this is the one.Ceviche and Margaritas are, of course, highly recommended!

On Tigermilk our order was a total latin combo: First we started with an Enchilada and a Ceviche. If you visit the restaurant, the Ceviche is a must. 

Later, we keep going with Nachos & Guacamole, Tacos, Roasted Sweet Potatoes- best snack ever- and some Margaritas (Mon Amoure…).

Le Baba

La cuisine méditerranéenne.

Marais pit stop.
Situated in the well-known Marais, Le Baba is surrounded by exquisite boutiques and design stores. The restaurant is not too big and it is completely open to the street, so you can feel the rythm of the hood.

Le Baba is specialized in Mediterranean cuisine and you will find a lot of veggie options! There’s a different menu everyday!
