Thread: Paris, a new thread

  1. #1

    Default Paris, a new thread

    Seeing as there is no active Paris thread and I'm heading there tomorrow for a while, I figure its time to open one up.



    Recommendations of all types welcome.

    apparently los angelites are friendlier than parisians

    It depends on what you're looking for really, and where you're staying
    sorry, unhelpful

    Blame European ennui, the Parisians must be following DES esseinteses footsteps in private decadence, so you'll have to discover Paris on your own.

    it's not clear to me whether you already had a look at this
    but here's a link to the old thread, some good stuff in there.

    Never been to LA but I bet this is true. Maybe the rest of France is friendlier but nobody in my apartment reciprocates when I greet them.

    Maybe I just don't understand big city "bubble" mentality?

    Anyways, where can I get some good real pizza for around 10 euros or under (not including drinks) range? I'm in the 11eme, BTW

    You just live with very rude people, everyone I know at least greets their house/work/bar mates on a regular basis

    for pizza I'm not sure... try to go by the look of the place I guess. I know a decent pizzeria in my neighbourhood, but it's a bit far from you

    Was in Paris for the first time last year and I thought the parisians were very friendly and polite. More so than in most places.

    I have no clue, I'm really not much of a pizza person. It's not pizza-hut puffy and not super thin crispy, more somewhere in between. I can't be more precise since I haven't eaten there since I moved in, it just came highly recomended so I ate there once, before all my stuff was unpacked

    Thanks for this- the scoute article is cool-
    but surely a thread on "paris and london shops" isnt exactly much compared to whole threads about the food, drink, etc in a city?

    Anyway, I've been here a while, around san german des pres, les halles, and l'opera- some place I've liked already are:
    Chez Denise- great food etc, communal atmosphere, late
    Le Societe- funny "fashion" place- Matriarch of the Rick empire sitting next to me in full regalia
    Comptoir de Relais- great lunch place near Odeon
    Le Montana- was a good place to go drink and hear a room full of french speakers each assume the other was American and then figure out slowly that each had a french accent. If you like some kind of scene, I guess this is the place.
    Au Chateau- Wine tasting in ancient cave, no tourist bs, real good (if you like wine)

    The Rick store here was small and empty.
    People at the 'lab' branch of L'eclaureur were incredibly nice. but the store never goes on sale? even on stuff from 2004?!?
    Otherwise city is beautiful, etc etc, hope this contributes anything at all worthwhile to anyone.
    no idea where to get pizza.

    EDIT: PS The other thread is from 2007.

    Les Tois Maillets at the corner of Rue Galande and Rue St Jacques in the 5th. Fantastic live music. Musicians 'sing for their supper' and they are amazing! Live cabaret downstairs. Reasonable food etc.

    the best chinese duck in Paris is also on rue Saint Jacques, but I don't remember the number. It's slightly below the boulevard saint michel on the right-hand side when walking towards the river. it looks completely gross from the outside, but it's excellent ans very cheap

    Not far from there, super cute and excellent quiche place: la fourmi ailée, 8 r Fouarre also in the 5th, close to the garden of Saint Julien le Pauvre church (oldest and only remaining romanesque church in Paris if I remember correctly, apparently the oldest tree in Paris is also in that garden. it's right next to the shakespeare & co bookstore)

    there, I helped

    Oh oh oh, speaking of chinese, I found this delightful little chinese noodle place that makes dishes for cheap (they make the noodles on the spot for each order) and it's awesome. It's near the marais. I had christmas dinner there when I was terribly hungover. Reminds of Toronto

    I love Robert et Louise on vielle du temple for a big steak cooked in front of you.

    La Perle to start the night, Baron or Montana to end it.

    Chez Janou, Au Petit Fer a Cheval, Hotel Amour, Hotel Costes, Cafe Ruc are some places I love for food.

    Rue St Anne for Japanese, Rue Volta for Chinese

    I've never been to robert & louise. Am curious, will check out soon

    also, Mike, what was the adress of that taylor you mentioned once that was in some way associated with Lanvin I think? (might as well diversify the thread)
