Restaurants and caterers :
there are many to choose from. Different styles, different budgets, some new ones, some that were but are not anymore, some disappeared from my list because the welcome "accueil" was not up to my
standards or because a better one opened nearby ...
This is a sample of my 2015 list...
I have a whole folder sorted by area or theme that I'll share upon arrival ; I can also make bookings for you.
Very Close to Argout :
- When I do not want to cook, I do not want to go far but want to eat healthy and tasty : Organic lunch at Fée Nature just outside the building. I love their vegetable blends. Good for your soul, good for your
health. Tell Isabelle you're coming on my behalf. Avoid the rush hour from 12.45 to 1.45, full of busy corporate people and long queuing.
- Missing a good quality burger with quality French fries ? Ready to queue or wait till 1.45 to enjoy your lunch ? Go to Blend at the end of the street.
- Want to taste crèpes ? French thin version of pancakes
try la crèpe dentelle
- For pizza lovers : same street same sidewalk : Il campionissimo the Pizza with a Ducasse
stamp on it !!!!. The largest Pizza "à la carte" menu I've ever seen. They also propose salads.
Le comptoir de la gastronomie rue Montmartre 2-3 mn walk excellent
for foie gras, smoked fish all of Southwestern French food. Smiling service. A must. They also offer a grocery section to take home...
Another nice Italian lively and noisy ( Italian !) Little Italy rue Montorgueil. Nice antipasti and pasta dishes.
History and food : Corner of Greneta ( facing you when you go through Mandar) : le
Rocher de Cancale. one of the oldest cafés in Paris (= Procope on the left bank) façade just redone : all blue and gold a real Marie Antoinette style

an International reputation and booking is not easy (I can help).
