I found Amarante open on Christmas, and it was 10 minutes from our apartment. Recommended in Michelin and Fooding, I assumed it would be pretty darn good. The food was good, but certainly not something to go out of your way for. If your grandmother...More

We have followed our bliss to the chef's imaginative servings up of new takes on classics. Unusual delightful stuffed cabbage. Incredible lamb. Austere table - almost feels like a cafeteria, but the people are friendly and the food is stunning.

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
