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 list...
I have a whole folder sorted by area or theme that I'll share upon arrival ; I can also make bookings for you.
In Argout and close surroundings, just a few. More upon arrival:
- 58 rue d'Argout excellent coffee, and one of the best carrot cakes in Paris, friendly atmopshere, can chat, read, check your emails... Matamata
- Want to taste crèpes ? French thin version of pancakes
try la crèpe dentelle
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...
- Frenchie rue du Nil : from word of mouth this little place has gained an International reputation and booking is not easy
(I can help).
The wine bar is open and no need to book.
They have opened a Frenchie to Go open for lunch with nice deli food.

Chartier" food is typical French brasserie style. Not gourmet but typical, landmark recipes, VERY cheap and it is a must visit for the experience and fun.
Of course there are so many… this is not an exhaustive list.
I have more recommendations for Right and Left Bank ( restaurants, famous pastry shops, spices, grocery..). I have a list of cafés
and Bistrots for almost daily meals and also those exceptional addresses, once in a lifetime experiences...
I also have an "endless" list of gourmet places in the
neighborhood or further off in every Paris "village" where you can buy "la crème de la crème" of products, to bring back home and enjoy
relaxed after a long day of strolls in the City of Lights.
I will share some with you after booking and more if we share more time
around a table, a stroll ...
