A joyful, comprehensive, energetically illustrated love letter to the culinary treasure that is Paris, from the bestselling author of Let’s Eat France!
Paris is the second-most visited city in the world—and food-wise, it has no peer. The cafés, the bistros, the bakeries, the grand old restaurants. And the shops, from chocolate and macarons to wine and cheese, from copper cookware to one-of-a-kind china—there’s nothing like it. Not to mention the culinary culture of the French capital, with its writers, artists, movie stars, expatriates, and more, all of whom made food and drink central to their lives. How natural then, and how perfect for the reader, that the author of Let’s Eat France! and Let’s Eat Italy! now turns his attention to his hometown.
            Chockful of infographics, recipes, photographs and illustrations, biographies, anecdotes, and quirky takes on unexpected trends, present and historical, Let’s Eat Paris! is the ultimate food lover’s guide to the ultimate food lover’s city. Read a timeline of the brasserie. An ode to the frites of Paris. Profiles of iconic restaurants: Tour d’Argent, Fouquets, L’ami Louis, La Coupole, Le Procope. Behold the sacred croissant and the twelve best places to find one. The tradition of hidden private dining rooms and other love nooks. Café Flore vs. Les Deux Magots. Best imports: kebabs, burgers, pizza. Recipes for Leeks Vinaigrette, Tournedos Rossini, Boeuf Bourguignon, Jambon-Beurre (and where to find the ones worth eating). A Hemingway tour. A guide to street markets. Art Nouveau or Art Deco? And tres, tres more.
