The Thrill Is Never Gone In Paris’ Romantic Restaurants

libadmin December 31, 2018

Paris offers a romantic vacation constructed of many joyful moments. Or that’s what it ought to be. And while of course dining experiences make up only one small facet of the whole experience, choosing the right restaurants, like Les Deux Magots, can only enhance the romance of your time spent here. On this list you will find restaurants that will make you feel like they have been created just for the two of you. If being among the trendsetters makes you feel like you have more sex appeal, the restaurant at the top of the super hip list today is Beefbar. Be sure to ask to be seated inside under the Art Deco authentic 19th c. hand painted glass roof. It is one of Paris’ most exquisite interior decors and a registered national landmark.

In the right setting, with the proper presentation and the just-perfect dishes curated on a restaurant’s menu, a romantic dinner or lunch can be one of life’s most enjoyable moments.  And what is happiness, ultimately, if not many joyful moments strung together to make a whole? To find some of these happy moments, try BO (it means ‘Kiss’ in Creole) for some rum and spiced up Caribbean cuisine or Brasserie Vaudeville for a journey back to old-world charm. 

When you are looking to celebrate love in the City of Light, take a meander over to the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank where you will find Le Mavrommatis, the most elegant of Greek-French fusion restaurants, the only one outside of Greece with a Michelin star. Or think Sunday brunch at Cafe de la Paix which sets the gold standard, though Alcazar offers a Saint-Germain chic alternative. For a chic and relaxed dinner, Hexagone, by multiple-starred chef Mathieu Pacaud, is sure to make the date-night go swimmingly (also recommended is his newly-acquired Apicius).

Art gallery browsing on Paris’ Rive Gauche makes for an afternoon or Thursday evening’s (when the art galleries tend to have their opening night shows) romantic pastime. In this neighborhood you have three superlative choices: Les Bouquinistes by Guy Savoy, Ze Kitchen Galerie by William Ledeuil. 

And for that French Bistro, the one with the cosy red velvet seating and the view out onto Ile St. Louis, whose chef is a master at anything that has truffles in it, look no farther than Chez Julien
