10th Arrondissement

Establishment neighborhood
Bonhomie
22 Rue d'Enghien, 10th
If you've overindulged on steak-frites and can't handle the thought of another buttery sole meunière, eschew the delicious but heavy bistro classics for some Mediterranean at Bonhomie. A café meets cocktail bar meets restaurant near the chic Marais district, sitting on a royal-blue leather stool in the beautiful, modern, white-and-gold interior feels like a breath of fresh air. The menu leans on Moroccan influences with a former Frenchie chef at the helm—dishes like minty chickpeas and labneh and harissa lamb with tabbouleh take center stage. If you happen to pass by at an odd afternoon hour, a coupe de champagne at the long marble bar is the way to go.
Hotel Grand Amour
18 Rue de la Fidélité, 10th
Hotelier Thierry Costes and artist/club impresario André have come together again for a follow-up to their ever-popular Hotel Amour, doubling the space to accommodate the demand for their particular brand of Parisian cool. Each room is individually decorated with some incredible vintage finds and a scattering of artwork by the likes of Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin. Meanwhile, downstairs, the all-day café/bistro is the place to see and be seen by locals, expats, and even Saraiva himself.
Nanashi
31 Rue de Paradis, 10th
Rose Bakery alum Kaori Endo’s creative spin on traditional, Japanese bento boxes is a huge hit in Paris—and she has a mini-chainlet of restaurants to prove it. We like the Marais location best, as its bigger than her original spot in the 10th. There’s a grocery and takeaway in the front, and a handful of tables in the back, where you can feast on really beautiful plates of veggies, carefully prepared meat and fish, chirashis, and soup. There's another location in the 3rd.
A.P.C.
5 Rue De Marseille, 10th
Known for making the ideal version of everyday staples, you can always rely on A.P.C. for perfectly considered trench coats, dark wash jeans, and striped tops that are just the right thickness. Men, in particular, always strike gold here since their simple shapes easily elevate any outfit without ever trying too hard (guys who struggle to find well-fitting jeans should definitely take look here). While there are nine outposts across the city, we like this one best; meanwhile, don't miss the outlet in the 18th, where everything is always 50 percent off. There are other locations in the 3rd (Rue Vielle du Temple, Boulevard des Filles du Calvaire), the 1st, 6th, 8th, and the 17th.
