When you go to a new city, especially one as expensive as Paris, it’s nice to have someone to vet your food options before you crack out those euro bills.
Sure, you can’t go too wrong in a city with so many good eats, but having a few ideas before you show up is a nice way to start. Luckily, John Quilter, the Food Busker, has put together a shortlist for you: a perfect lunch spot, a very special coffee shop, a top-notch grocery, and a bistro that’s, “only for the locals.” He joins up with one of our favorite French food vloggers, chef Alex Gabriel of French Guy Cooking, for a trip to one of Alex’s secret spots, Le Siffleur de Ballons.
One of the spots visited in the video, Coutume, was actually listed in our article on coffee shops that are changing French coffee culture. So if you haven’t had your fill of recommendations, give it a quick read, and bon appétit!
