Bon Appetit, France!

Paris, Dijon, Calais

When you see the map of France, the variety of food is amazing. Burgundy and Alsace are next to each other, but you look at winemakers, the vegetables, and fruits, they’re totally different. There are so many different terrains in France that we are quite focused on our food from different region, but I can tell you for many years that the culinary knowledge is disappearing because a lot of French are going overseas. Here are some of the very local restaurants I like in France!

La Maison de l'Aubrac

Paris, France • Recommendation • 8 months ago

I think this is something you should do. They put all the meat facing the customer, and you can try the meat you want. It’s a very traditional French steakhouse. You can choose your meat from this specific area, they also have very good cheese.

Le Bouillon Chartier

Paris, France • Recommendation • 8 months ago

This is a very funny one, really old school. The waiters are 60 years old. The chef is screaming in the kitchen, you can hear him. They have mimosa eggs, french bean, puff pastry, tortes... The menu is so big! You have the Endive Salad, you have the Roast Chicken which is nice. Very authentic.

La Poule Au Pot

Paris, France • Recommendation • 8 months ago

The name is actually a recipe, but this is also another old school restaurant. They serve you everything on a silver plate, but in a very casual way. The sweet breads are amazing.

Restaurant Le Millésime

Dijon, France • Recommendation • 8 months ago

This is in Chambolle, the middle of a small village. This guy, he’s very passionate about wines and he knows all the winemakers in the region. It’s very good, simple food.

Restaurant Le Cygne

Calais, France • Recommendation • 8 months ago

It’s very authentic, in the middle of a small village. It’s a big house. Inside, it’s very modern. It’s typical local.
