For Advice From Your Personal French Chef:
You couldn’t be in better hands for restaurant recommendations in Paris than from a blog created by two food lovers. Christophe, who cooks and runs his own, personal food blog, and Slanelle, who is the lucky lady who gets to sample his creations, have put their heads together to form an extensive list of places in the Paris that you could only get from a local cook. A very professional-looking website, you can search for places to go by cuisine type, budget or place, making the search for the perfect dinner spot for dinner much easier. Finding fine food has never been easier.

She works as a freelance food and travel writer and you needn’t think twice about putting your faith in her selected spots.

Your Parisian Foodie Friend:
En Rang D’Oignons
‘Le bonheur c’est facile, ça se mange‘ (Happiness is easy, it’s eating), stands proud at the top of each page of Raphaële’s blog, and after taking a look at some of the content, you’ll be quick to agree with her. Resembling a traditional blog, it has a simple layout and quirky illustrations. En Rang D’oignons is diverse, and showcases that passion for good food we all associate with the French. With a wide selection of restaurants from street-food to Michelin Stars, En Rang D’oignons is refreshing in its modesty and has some great traditional, authentically French suggestions that any tourist would be hard set trying to find alone. A real Parisian friend on a web page, Raphaële is sure to keep you well away from those tourist traps.
For Finding Your Own Luxury in Paris:
Critiques Et Confidences
For those fancy pants among you, Clotilde’s Critiques Et Confidences is more like a work of art than a food blog. Featuring reviews, write-ups and of course, photos – and lots of them – from some of the finest places in town such as the prestigious Le Meurice, Clotilde opens the doors to a luxurious foodie-paradise. This is high-end dining at its best, and the plated masterpieces on show almost look too good to eat, so delicate are they in their finesse.
