Equal of Patricia Well's Food Lovers Guide to Paris for the 21st century????

A family trip to Paris is in the works.

In standard prep, I took a look at my tattered copy of Patricia Well's Food Lovers Guide to Paris. YeGads! Its nearly 12 years old and I have the fourth edition.

Pray tell, fellow 'hounds, who has stepped up to the plate to replace Ms. Wells? I have Clotilde's Edible Adventures in Paris---is there anything else?

  1. goodness, does the lack of response mean there is nothing? Is this the opening for leaving my job and moving to France that I've been longing for--to write the next ultimate guide to food in Paris?


        John Talbott does a enjoyable blog on Paris restaurants his tastes seem similar to mine

          more mmmm. Honestly I must stop with the reading of food blogs in the middle of the morning when lunch is so very far away.

          Thank you!

            I saw the 36 hours in paris thing when I checked the times this am.....I am so very old! I won't be hitting any of the bars mentioned or hanging with any of the snazzy people. . . . then again, I didn't do it when I was younger either.

            But thank you for making sure I saw it!

          2. That was a great series of books, and I learned so much from them. And the great photography, too... I was lucky enough to spend some time w/ her in Paris, and thank her for what she'd given so many of us.
