Think French cuisine and the dishes that first come to mind are probably the likes of foie gras, coq au vin, frog legs and snails … But vegetarians and vegans need not be wary of dining out in Paris anymore, because plant-based eating has captured the imagination of foodies all across the city.

Créatures

Situated on the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette, Créatures is a pop-up restaurant devoted to vegan and vegetarian fare. The salads are fresh, colourful and organic — and if they make you feel a little overly virtuous, you can always balance things out at Créatures’ cocktail bar. Open until October 13.
