Best Paris Restaurants

My wife and I will be in Paris for a week in July and I wanted to get everyone's thoughts regarding the latest and greatest restaurants. We are aware of the "old guards" of French cuisine if you will, but wanted to get some insight on the best new restaurants to open up over the past few years. Any help you can provide would be much apprecaited! Thanks!

      We are really open minded, but I suppose we typically prefer more traditional and less formal (although not too casual) restaurants. I suppose I started this thread to find out what had really impressed others recently. Let the recommendations fly! Restaurants that have routinely come up in my research are Frenchie, Le Comptoir, Le Chateaubriand, etc. So, maybe that gives you and idea of other similar restaurants that we might be interested in. Thanks!

        More traditional but less formal? Seems like a contradiction.

        Read through this forum. Pretty much the same 10-15 restaurants are discussed over and over again and will give you a good idea of where to go.

        1. re: bcomarda

          Frenchie opened in '09, Le Comptoir back in '06 I think, and Chateaubriand goes back to '07 or 8 if memory serves me well so none of these are particularly new. Agape Substance, Saturne, Le Dauphin, Au Passage, Verjus, Dans Les Landes, Jean-Francois Piege spring to mind as the latest and greatest. But I am certain once I am aware of them they are probably really on the leading edge of the trends in Paris.

      2. Have you tried Googling Figaroscope or Le Fooding or Omnivore? These all stay on top of what's happening.

          1. This is all really helpful. We apprecaite it.
