Former European correspondent for Gourmet Magazine, Alexander Lobrano has written, since he became an American in Paris in 1986, for major food and travel magazines including Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Travel & Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler. He is also a regular contributor to The New York Times T Magazine and has won several James Beard awards.
In this guide, Lobrano shares his personal selection of the city’s 102 best restaurants, each of which is portrayed in savvy, fun, lively descriptions that are not only indispensable for finding a superb meal but also a pleasure to read.
Lobrano reveals the hottest young chefs, the coziest bistros, the best buys – including those haute cuisine restaurants that are really worth the money – and the secret places Parisians love most, together with information on the most delicious dishes, ambience, clientele, and history of each restaurant. A series of delightful essays cover various aspects of dining in Paris, including “Table for One” (how to eat alone), “The Four Seasons” (the best seasonal eating in Paris), and “Eating the Unspeakable” (learning to eat what you don’t think you like). All restaurants are keyed to helpful maps, and the book is generously illustrated with beautiful photographs by former Life Magazine photographer Bob Peterson.
