Katie Schwausch of French Cravings Reviews Dining Out in Paris

Dining Out in Paris

My Thoughts on Dining Out in Paris

As a frequent traveler to Paris, I have amassed an extensive collection of dining guides, some helpful and some not so much, but the majority of which basically cover the same restaurants in the most visited parts of town without offering much else to the reader.

Longtime Paris resident and writer Tom Reeves offers so much more in his book, Dining Out in Paris. His guide is as straightforward as it gets, a must for the first-time traveler to Paris. Loaded throughout with French restaurant vocabulary and their translations, he demystifies much of the Paris dining experience. Not sure about the difference between a bistro and brasserie? What about those confusing menu combinations of entree, plat, and dessert? Tom explains it all.

Refreshingly, he eschews the usual, over-reported latest places for 12 lesser-known restaurants scattered about the City of Light. His thorough reviews include interviews with chefs and owners, who are often one-in-the-same, giving the reader a personal perspective of each location. And not all of his choices are French! He covers Moroccan, fusion, vegan, and more.

Be sure to read this informative guide before your next trip to Paris.

Bon appétit!

Author David Burke Reviews Dining Out in Paris

Dining Out in Paris

As a longtime resident in Paris, I can highly recommend Dining Out in Paris, especially for people coming for long stays. What I particularly admire is the crystal clear introduction to the different kinds of eating places one finds here, which are confusing at first as, for example, what’s the difference between what one can expect a at restaurant versus a bistro versus a brasserie versus a café in terms of the look and the service and the types of food they serve, and salons de thé and bars à vin, what you can get there besides tea and wine, with some items overlapping, but some quite different. The book also explains the terms for the order of the meal, the entrée, the plat principal, and the dessert, and beyond the eateries, it gives you an excellent run-down on all kinds of shops for things to eat and drink, from fromage to vin to glace and sorbet and chocolates – the works! This is just what the subtitle says, “What you need before you get to the City of Light.”

I’ve only had time to get to one of the eating places, the vegetarian Café Ginger, in my Bastille neighborhood. Everything was delicious and surprising, and the description in the book was right on.

Another thing I like about this book is that it has none of the usual culinary suspects, and the restaurants they recommend are located in colorful parts of Paris, mostly away from the tourist areas, and are not all are French. Half of the eateries they recommend are savory-sounding places from other parts it the world. Instead of running down a quick list, this book recommends and critiques only twelve restaurants, studying them with deep care and evident pleasure and writing about them in them with rich, enticing descriptions. I commend their approach. They love good food and know how to explain it, and with plenty of happy surprises all the way.

Bravo!
