Bon Appétit

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. For starters, here are five eateries to whet the appetite …

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.

Happiz

The traditionally minded 16e arrondissement is where you expect to find oodles of foie gras, but it’s also home to a popular pizzeria that cooks up delicious custom-made vegetarian and vegan concoctions. Paris, you’re changing …

August is when many Parisians head to the family coastal or country home, but in a way Paris feels like a resort itself, because it has a lovely, lazy, slow calmness to it. There’s the heat, too, of course (Cole Porter was surely thinking about August when he penned the lyrics ‘I love Paris when […]
