When in Paris eating is a way to sightsee with food a major landmark of the city, and four restaurants you need to add to your must-see list are right here.
An elevated wine bar, Nellu is your rendezvous for a perfect drop while visiting Paris. Fifty wines to choose from is only the beginning of a wonderful evening in the capital with chef Clément Vergeat putting together a menu that will treat your tastebuds to a culinary dance. Cauliflower horseradish hummus with wasabi and served with oat crackers, raw langoustine with mango bisque and caviar, and pulled pork drizzled with coriander yoghurt are only some of the dishes that will seduce you.
In the oh so chic 8th arrondissement of Paris is where you will find La Traboule. In this restaurant where chef Francesco Fezza brings traditional bistro dishes to its menu and gives them a wonderful culinary makeover sees you dining on candied snails, royal pigeon served with beetroot and smoked eel, and red mullet wrapped in golden kataifi pastry and served with white cabbage gyoza.
Across the River Seine in the equally boujee 7th arrondissement is where you will find La Traboule's sister restaurant, Comptoir de la Traboule. Here the atmosphere is more relaxed and share plates let you sample more of the delicious dishes to pair with your glass of wine, or two. On the menu you will find beef tataki, Basque pork belly served with corn cream and jalapeño pickles, and mushroom arancini.
For a taste of New York's Italian restaurants while in the French capital, you need to pay Osteria Brutto a visit. The recently opened restaurant in the 5th arrondissement serves all the Italian favourites such as rigatoni alla vodka, Caesar salad with crunchy golden croutons, and veal parmigiana, all to be savoured with Italian wine or perhaps a refreshing spritz.
