Hungry after the match at Parc des Princes? Or maybe it's all the sightseeing in in and around Western Paris that has worked up your appetite? No matter, the restaurants on this list are all nearby, as in a quick taxi ride. And they are all authentically Parisian, though few rival the ultra-Parisian genuine brasserie feel of Fouquet's. It's been the gathering spot and watering-hole for stars of sports, film and entertainment for decades now and, well, some (fine) places just never get old.
When the vibe is high from the evening’s excitement and you want the entertainment to continue, good eats are what you’re after when you’re among friends. So, here are ten good choices that won’t let you down. Several of these eating establishments are open late as well, so you needn’t worry about that "past dinnertime" rule that is so strictly observed in France. La Gare and Cafe de L'Homme both offer good late night dining options, and, along with Mary Goodnight, boast a mean cocktail menu and an even better bar set off from their main dining areas. So, in other words, party on !
If a traditional French restaurant with fresh, contemporary décor and a stellar view suits more your mood for lunch or dinner, then be sure to make reservations at Cafe de l'Homme, a picturesque restaurant at Trocadéro that offers two things unparalleled in the city: the view onto the Eiffel Tower and their wine list. (Their wine list has over 2500 references.)
For Michelin-starred, formal dining Hexagone, Le Gabriel, Les Tablettes de Jean-Louis Nomicos, Lasserre and La Grande Cascade all offer memorable - and delightful - dining experiences.
