9th & 18th Arrondissement Restaurants

Restaurant neighborhood
Buvette
28 Rue Henry Monnier, 9th
It takes nerve (and talent) for an American to take a French concept and recreate it for a famously hard-to-please Parisian audience. In chef Jody William’s case, her French-inspired wine bar, Buvette, has been adopted with open arms. She tested the concept in New York first—there is a much-loved West Village outpost—and exported her “gastrotheque” back to Paris in 2013, to rave reception. In this romantic, perfectly Parisian little wine bar, you can expect a wonderful cocktail and wine list, and a petite menu of small versions of dishes like Coq Au Vin and Moules and Tartines. They also serve several local, seasonal salads—good ones are still a hard to find in many traditional French restos.
9th & 18th Arrondissement
Dim Sum Cantine
15 Rue Manuel, 9th
Much like the Cantonese-style dumplings that are its claim to fame, this restaurant is compact but mighty. The house-made dim sum (mushroom, shrimp, lacquered pork, and more) is steamed and then immediately served by the basket, accompanied by salad and rice. Lest you forget you’re in Paris, the steamed brioche buns make for the perfect dessert. Since this restaurant is often packed, check out their second location in the 2nd arrondissement.
9th & 18th Arrondissement
Rose Bakery
46 Rue des Martyrs, 9th
Focused exclusively on breakfast and lunch (brunch in particular, packs out the house), Rose Bakery is now two Paris locations strong (plus an outpost in London’s Dover Street Market and Tokyo’s Comme des Garçons). Rose Carrarin crafts fresh, locally sourced ingredients into vegetarian-friendly salads and simple sandwiches that are significantly lighter than traditional French bistro fare. And did we mention that it’s a bakery? The bread, puddings, and cakes shouldn’t be skipped—even though Rose Bakery has British roots, the confections here can compete with Paris’s best. There's another location in the 3rd.
