The Paris Guides

At long last. We walked hundreds of miles, and tried a few too many goose-fat fried potatoes in putting together these guides to Paris (there’s a huge—and free!—city guide app that goes with it). But we can’t really complain: There’s only one Paris. You’ll find about 300 of the city’s best spots, from the classic Bar Hemingway, to the newest Michelin starred arrivals.

    Paris gets quiet in August, when—in a stroke of brilliance—France gives itself the month off. While many restaurants and boutiques shut down for vacances, some for the entire months, others for a week or so to give their staff a break, there’s something nice about visiting during this quiet spell. And, best of all, some of our favorite places do stay open. Rule of thumb: Bars and restaurants belonging to hotels are always a safe bet this time of year.
