The Paris Foodie Guide


Oh the many culinary delights of Paris, from goose fat fried potatoes to sole meuniere to the simple pleasures of an almond croissant. It seems like there’s a Michelin starred joint on every corner, and an equally wonderful cheese shop or bakery to back it up. Here, our favorites of Paris’ gastro treasures.

Shangri-La Hotel

10 Avenue d'Léna, 16th | +

Beyond the stunning views, the attention to detail is meticulous here, resulting in a luxurious and wonderful stay. More importantly (and unsurprisingly), two of the three on-site restaurants (Shang Palace, L’Abeille) boast Michelin stars.

George V

31 Avenue George V, 8th | +

Built in 1928, this opulent, eight-story hotel—just steps from the Champs Elysée—is pretty much the gold-standard for city-based, luxury hotels. It’s never a bargain, but if your budget can support the splurge, there’s really no better place to stay. Besides the lavishly-appointed rooms, the service is superb, the restaurant boasts a Michelin-star, and the location is hard to beat.
