Recommended Restaurants:

Ze kitchen galerie ( 4 Rue des Grands Augustins, 75006 Paris)
      This Michelin star restaurant is just perfect. Situated at Saint-Germain area, to the left bank of the river. The ambience is plain & modern. The staff professional & friendly making you feel really comfortable. We had the 8 course menu & it was one of the few times that every single dish was excellent!! (You have to try the Gianduja desert!!!). The wine list is small but adequate & the prices fair for the class of the restaurant. It probably deserves a second Michelin star. I will definitely visit this place again & I totally recommend it to anyone traveling to Paris!

Le Boeuf Volant (4 Rue Mariotte, 75017 Paris)
      The beef here really does have wings – it’s flown in from the US, Bavaria, Australia and Spain, and its labels read ‘Black Angus’ or ‘Simmenthal’. In a little corner of Batignolles, you’ll find a doorway crowned with a pair of horns that opens onto a pretty, chic little restaurant, all hanging lamps, stained glass, vintage crockery and plain wooden furniture, hinting strongly at a modern New York steak house. The cosy feel is only emphasised by the small number of seats and the open kitchen (luckily the extractor fan is fully functional) – a dimly-lit, welcoming place.

Miznon (22 Rue des Ecouffes, 75004 Paris)
      Just minutes away from the Rue des Rosiers and the every-popular As du Falafel, Miznon has wisely decided to stick to what it does best – pitta sandwiches – rather than try and compete with its chickpea-cooking neighbours. The original restaurant in Tel Aviv has been wining over customers for some time, and the Parisian branch follows the same formula – a charmingly basic décor featuring lots of boxes of fruit and vegetables, the same warm atmosphere, the same dishes cooked under the direction of head chef Eyal Shani.

Places to See:

Fondation louis Vuitton
      In the lush Bois de Boulogne, legendary French fashion house Louis Vuitton opened a contemporary, Frank Gehry–designed structure made of twelve balloon-like glass “sails.” Inside, theFondation Louis Vuitton’s permanent collection includes pieces from Rothko, Matisse, Koons, and Basquiat. In addition, there’s a rotating series of special exhibitions and a 350-seat auditorium for viewing performances and observing Ellsworth Kelly’s rainbow-colored stage curtain. Outside, get lost in the rooftop gardens overlooking the leafy park and, downstairs, take Instagram-worthy photos amongst Danish artist Olafur Eliasson’s cool mirrored columns.

Strolling the Rue des Martyrs
      Paris's old market streets are often overlooked by visitors busily running from one monument to the next. This is a mistake, since they are an authentic part of Paris that's not always easy to come by, especially on a short trip. If you visit only one, this bustling street full of fromageries, boulangeries,and boucheries should be it. A central neighborhood market for over two hundred years, the older purveyors of everything from fruit to fish share the street with newer, more high-end pastry shops, chocolatiers, gourmet cafés, and upscale boutiques, adding to the street's considerable charm and lively atmosphere.

Walk the Ile Saint-Louis
      Just behind the Notre-Dame gardens, the Pont Saint-Louis pedestrian bridge leads to the atmospheric streets and lively shopping of the Ile Saint-Louis. This peaceful island is truly an oasis. Enjoy traditional Parisian fare at the Brasserie de l'Isle Saint-Louis or sample one of the 90 scrumptious flavors of handmade, all-natural ice creams and sorbets—in flavors like wild strawberry, noisette, rum raisin, and white chocolate—at Bertillon, Paris's most famous ice-cream maker.

Places to Relax

Bois de Boulogne
      Bois de Boulogne – A little known park - In the West of Paris, between the Périphérique (ring road) and the business district of La Défense, you can find one of the biggest public parks of Paris: with its 8.46 km², it is more than 3 times bigger than Hyde Park + Kensington Gardens in London or 2.5 times bigger than Central Park in NYC. This place has several disadvantages: it is difficult to reach via metro; it is crossed by wide avenues with sometimes high traffic; some areas are private (sports or upper society clubs); and it suffers from its reputation of being mostly a prostitution area.

Passerelle S. de Beauvoir
      here is a spot to have a relaxed nap, off the beaten tracks, but in a very accessible and original place. The Passerelle (footbridge) Simone de Beauvoir is the 37th and most recent bridge in Paris (2006), and it is one of the 4 bridges dedicated to pedestrians (and non motorised transports, like rollerblades or bicycles). It connects two modern (and green) urban areas of Paris, Bercy on the Right Bank, and Tolbiac area on the Left Bank, where I already advised to stop for a nap, but rather in the winter time. Not only it is an interesting bridge from an architectural point of view (with ondulating shapes and no pillar in the Seine), but also its structure makes it very comfortable for any kind of break: you’ll always find sunny areas next to shadowed ones (thanks to the above structure, see picture), especially at the warmest hours of the day; and its wooden floor is clean and quite comfortable to lie on for a nap.

Reclining chairs
      Enjoy a siesta in public gardens Green spaces in Paris are divided into parks, which are big, generally in peripheral areas, and gardens, which are smaller but more central and generally surrounded by historical palaces and decorated with statues. Generally, the gardens, have no – or very little – grass to lie on. But what makes a critical difference is the fact that in these gardens, it is possible to find the greatest piece of (urban) furniture on earth!!! The reclining Chaise Luxembourg! Having a nap on one of those reclining chairs is a must-do during a stay in Paris! You can find them in the Luxembourg of course, but also in the Tuileries and a few ones in the Palais-Royal (check the Palais-Royal article), close to the ponds and fountains, the edge of which is an excellent place to stretch legs.

Neighborhoods:

Around the Eiffel tower
      One of Paris's most upscale neighborhoods, the posh 7e arrondissement (where nearly every block affords a view of La Tour Eiffel) is home to the French bourgeoisie and well-heeled expats. Commanding the southwestern end of Paris, the Eiffel Tower was considered an iron-latticed monstrosity when it opened in 1889. Today it is a beloved icon, especially at night when thousands of twinkling lights sparkle at the top of every hour.

Around the Louvre
      The neighborhoods from the très chic Faubourg St-Honoré to trendy Les Halles are a study in contrasts, with the Louvre in the midst of the bustle. The impossibly posh Rue Faubourg St-Honoré, once the stomping ground of kings and queens, is now home to the French president and assorted foreign ambassadors. Beloved by fashionistas for three centuries, it is as popular today as it was when royal mistresses shopped here—which explains the plethora of high-end stores (almost every luxury brand is represented). Not surprisingly, ritzy restaurants and haute hotels are located here as well.

Eastern Paris
      The Bastille used to be the star of this area, and a stop here—at the epicenter of the French Revolution—was obligatory. The small streets forking off Place de la Bastille still buzz at night, thanks to bars, music clubs, and the top-flight Opéra Bastille. There are also noteworthy attractions, like the nearby Viaduc des Arts, an urban-renewal project that transformed an old elevated rail line into arcaded, design-focused studios and shops. Along the top, the Promenade Plantée makes for a lovely stroll through the 12e arrondissement, which includes stately apartment buildings and pretty Square Trousseau, gateway to the Marché d'Aligre. But today the neighborhoods farther afield are the real draw, having evolved into some of Paris's top destinations.
