Tempting the eyes, enticing the palate, and arousing the senses, this gourmet tour of Paris provides a panoramic survey of the celebrated epicenter of gastronomy. From upscale grandeur to traditional establishments to contemporary, on-trend locations, distinguished food critic and author Pierre Rival has handpicked the best places to eat or source the most authentic and delectable offerings in the city. Divided into four chapters, this book takes the reader on a culinary exploration of the capital. Yield to the temptation of Decadent Paris, from the Belle Epoque interiors of the Michelin-starred Grand Véfour to the enticing wine cellar Les Caves Augé, or the beautiful jewel tones of a Ladurée macaroon. In Traditional Paris, settle in with the locals at a favorite bistro such as Le Baratin or L'Ami Louis, nibble on the crunchiest baguette from the Paul bakery, or sample one of the seasonal cheese selections from Anne Marie Cantin. Contemporary Paris celebrates the city's most creative and inventive gastronomic venues, from the Cristal Room de Baccarat, the chic bar seats at l'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, the gem-like chocolates at Marcolini, and the all-apple concept boutique Pomze. Finally, Cosmopolitan Paris pays homage to the international offerings in the city, which is a crossroads to all destinations--from the Mediterranean to the Far East. Discover this dining haven of a city, where food is as revered as the finest works of art, and illustrious dining rooms transport you to a different era, or where dimly-lit wine cellars offer fine vintages, and refined Parisian tea and coffee boutiques allow the visitor to enjoy the quintessential delights of this gourmet destination.
