Top Coolest Restaurants In Paris Right Now In 2023

These are the top coolest dining spots in Paris, according to our highly knowledgeable team, and they serve the tastiest food. Or, to put it another way, the enjoyment of eating

Do you have the feeling that you are reading a compilation of works that is incredibly personal?

Yes, but which of them, in your opinion, best captures the way in which the profundity of the setting, your interests, and the excitement of being there all come together?

Any of these gorgeous tables would make us happy to have you join us.

Below is a list of the coolest restaurants in Paris as of right now.


This timeless Parisian bistro setting hides its game well. As we prepare to bite into a fried rib steak with a quarter of a rib, we are astounded by the chiseled plates of Japanese chef Masaki Nagao (formerly of Clarence), who creates tempura from sardines and pearly hake and tops it off with chorizo sauce.

The experience wouldn’t be complete without sommelier Marco Pelletier (who worked at the Bristol), the cheeky slender who hoards the small dining room and one of the finest cellars in Paris with extremely rare bottles.

And to top it off, prices have been vaccinated against inflation!


Carefully keeping his distance from the gangs of big-mouthed chefs, Adrien Ferrand digs his furrow in his cozy restaurant.

A cuisine where technique (impeccable) marries emotion, where the dishes as beautiful as a new day delight the barge with small


There are places that clash but sound obvious. Mokonuts is one of them. Apparently, a modest coffee shop where you can send yourself a top cookie without prior notice from the brilliant Japanese firefly, Moko Hirayama, is, in fact, a real signature restaurant.

The Franco-Lebanese chef Omar Koreitem paints a sensitive, unique, and traveling cuisine—the kind that makes your hair stick out unexpectedly. Our cozy restaurant year after year!


Dark wood bistro furniture, amusing 19th-century bourgeois paintings diverted, Belle Epoque tiling… A dream of a Parisian tavern nestled in the Passage des Panoramas

From his zinc and zellige open kitchen, as imperturbable as Monte Limbara, the Sardinian Simone Tondo has been sending reassuring Italian classics since 2017, beauties straight from his grandmother’s boot. Simple, good, but dearly priced.


Nothing has changed since the invention of the sun (roughly) in this reproduction of Saharan kamas—openwork lamps, pleated linens on the ceiling, and zelliges.

The bright owner, Marie-Josée Mimoun, is as enthusiastic as a José Garcia on MDMA and continues to source the crème de la crème of products to cook the best couscous in the world (we’re not exaggerating):

spices from the Thiercelin house, milk-fed lamb from the Pyrenees, olive oil from Greece, and so on.

She was even one of the first to expand her wine list to include all varieties!

Address: Rue de Crussol, 75011 Paris


A name that is a little scary for an address that is ultimately very sweet, opened by the Franco-Brazilian couple Ninon Lecomte and Lucas Baur de Campos

Service is too nice, so cozy is the setting, and dishes are certainly meaty but all in delicacy, like this cumulonimbesque mashed potatoes, crowned with a marrow bone that accompanies a perfectly flame-cooked rib of beef and is more tender than a baby dachshund’s look.

Without forgetting the mythical roast chicken on Sunday lunch…

Address: No. 5, rue du General Renault, Paris

At Sea

At the helm of this tiled micro-galley, we find the Belgian-Ugandanian Olive Davoux, formerly of the crew of the Ecailler du Bistrot, who delights lunch and dinner with a menu of small plates inspired by the (artisanal) fishing of the day and into which you can dive head first without fear: black mullet ceviche, lean carpaccio from the Basque Country.

Not to mention the baskets of well-cast oysters (Utah Beach from Monsieur Jean-Paul, specials from the Cadoret family). Too good!

Soba Shelter

At Time Out Paris, if we still mourn the closure of Abri by chef Katsuaki Okiyama, we do more than console ourselves at his second address, an izakaya dedicated to sodas.

For decoration, all wooded walls and concrete on the ground

But especially for these crazy buckwheat noodles, slurp in a hot or cold broth—without a doubt the best sodas in Paris, in texture, broth, and flavors—precise and delicious!

In the evening, a few sharp bonuses are on the menu: clams steamed with sake, a salad of rolled pork with miso, mythical chicken karaage, etc. Congratulations also on the wine list, which is concise and well thought out!


At the helm of this industrial ship combining wood, glass, concrete, and steel? Captain Grébaut—septime, it’s him—takes us on an invigorating and spicy cruise towards iodized recipes full of energy.

In this marine annex of Septimius, the map changes depending on the fishing (artisanal and sustainable).

You can peck on cuttlefish from Oléron spiced up with chili, mullet ceviche with butternut squash, etc. Watch out: like the tide in the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, the bill rises quickly.

80 rue de Charonne

Le Servan

Since 2014, the sisters Katia and Tatiana Levha have been spitting their hunger in this corner of rue Saint-Maur, in a more-beautiful-you-die landmark (zinc in gilded brass, moldings on the ceiling, period fresco, and bouquet of flowers on the mastic bar).

The kitchen? Free, playing leapfrog between France and Asia, full of a beautiful audacity and so anchored in its time, like the grilled sweetbreads boosted with phrik phao (spicy Thai sauce).

And then these hand-picked pure juices—burgundy reds and whites in force—were sublime: Laurence and Rémi Dufaitre, Fanny Sabre, Philippe Pacalet, Jean Foillard, Sylvain Pataille…

Adress; 32 rue Saint-Maur

Market Children

If you are looking for a meal with a starchy tablecloth, a friend of veggies, and whispered service, go your way!

The cheeky Michael Grosman, who received the award for the best hauler in Paris at the Time Out Food and Drink Awards, swallows up this market counter in a tall bar with no ceiling above the head (flagella in winter).

Japanese chef Shunta Suzuki’s scoundrel and meaty dishes are as delicious as they are priced: iconic Groix mussels in a gorgonzola marinade, brain tempura…

Bistrot des Tournelles

A great admirer of astronomy, Édouard Vermynck (formerly l’Entrée des Artistes) has transformed the former Gaspard de la Nuit into a century-old imitation bistro with old framed photos, an antique sideboard with a mirror, and sublime hand-painted lettering on the front.

The menu is to match and align with the ageless, well-known, and well-turned Franchouillard: artisanal andouillette with a bush of excellent matchstick fries, roast chicken and cumulonimbesque mashed potatoes, cordon bleu, and fries… Nostalgia has never tasted so good!

Le Cadoret

This retro Bouchard, as beautiful as a blue truck in its own juice (mosaics-moleskin-moldings), reigns over its Belleville top from the croissant in the morning to the Diego at dinner.

Léa Fleuriot blasts dishes from yesteryear, sometimes twisted with an herb, a condiment, or a bit of chili, as in this beef chuck stew pampered with a sauce of fermented soybean paste.

As for the brother Louis-Marie, with the necks, it uncorks natural wines and casted sakes with care. The Cadet? Forever the adored candor of the district

Lolo Bistro

After Lolo Cave à Manger, Loc Minel and Christophe Juville replay the roommate in a very London bistro, a few pedal strokes from the main address. Around the mastic brazier and the gleaming neon, Zac Gannat sets his world ablaze with incendiary tapas, in the pure tradition of Greg Marchand: scotch egg merguez-vermouth; scallop and horseradish temaki; wild garlic agnolotti… Signature bistronomy: fiery in its inspirations, intractable in its intentions, artistic in its preparations And for the wines, trust Lolo to dig up and not drink Skittles everywhere!


It’s a quintet of good heads, five fellow athletes from the party, and plates that have it in their bag. In a funky festive room, Antonin Girard, who went to Lolo, twerks Japanese morning dishes (in classic format for lunch and nighttime tapas): marinated egg and wasabi mayo, XXL mussels with pimentos, CBD cookie… In contact lenses, natural rajas range from white to orange to red. And in the ears, an erudite DJ set.

Double Dragon

Do you want precision, sharpness, and the unexpected? You will be served twice. In this beautiful room with a carved ceiling, a domino counter, and a neon dragon, the sisters Tatiana and Katia Levha rub their Filipino roots with global influences like these fried baos gorged with Comté to dip in an XO mayo or these South American shells strolling in an incendiary chipotle and chili broth. A unique, quirky, and endearing address. With the bonus of an ultra-friendly staff and a turn-of-the-century hip-hop soundtrack (heart with fingers for Mary J. Blige).


The rediscovered honor of the döner! At Ozlem, there are no frozen fries or questionable meat.

The team of this Turkish canteen works at dawn to prepare the ultimate spit: veal breast mixed with turkey, which marinates for long hours before being skewered the next day and then grilled.

It is eaten on a homemade dürüm (wheat pancake) garnished with sliced red onions, a hint of sumac, parsley, etc. A perfectly seasoned killer that is both crispy and soft.


This Japanese canteen is Little’s real treasure chest, despite its Leroy Merlin-style paneling and walls decorated with copious amounts of air conditioning.

Tokyo. Neither ceremonious Japanese nor all-comers to beef and cheese, the brand combines what is needed in grace with what we like in spontaneity.

Blade of these places? Chef Toyofumi Zuru sends sea urchin or langoustine sushi, creamy miso eggplant, or amberjack carpaccio. The trip ends with a serious sake menu.

Miznon Marais

This location, two lengths from a tzitzit on rue des Rosiers, designed by Telavivian star Eyal Shani, plays it kindly messy with a wide open kitchen, a loud sound system, balloons, and vegetables dangling from the counter.

Even the huge slate hanging on the wall puts the menu out of order.

Therefore, we grill pitas at the top, along with legendary grilled cauliflower, ultra-melting lamb-beef meatballs, and comforting ratatouille. Simple and funky.


Thomas Chisholm, seen in Top Chef season 12, also passed by the restaurant and finally landed at home in an elegant room for CSP++ with long communal tables, an open kitchen, and multiple suspensions.

The Franco-American chef spares no expense with his luxurious tapas. Marinade, grilling, smoking…

The recipes multiply the techniques and textures without turning into a demonstration.

As a result, we sauce everything happily until the last drop. Well done, Chocho!


Friends of the Beaux-Arts, Marie-Anna Delgado (in the kitchen) and Olivia Brunet (in the decoration and in the dining room), set up this canteen love (rewarded with a Time Out award) where all of Belleville has its napkin ring.

A magical lunchtime formula that offers dishes at friendly prices back from Catalonia by the departmental Landes; ramshackle tapas evenings, bingo Sundays…
