North End of the 9th?
My husband is leaving tomorrow for Paris to visit a friend who just moved there and to help them settle in a little. I've been following the boards for a while and have tracked down many many recommendations for restaurants, markets, cheese shops, wine shops etc throughout Paris.
But, the north end of the 9th (up towards the 18th - I guess I've always just assumed that was north) seems to be a bit of a food void from my research. If I'm not mistaken, that area was (maybe still is) a "red light district" so maybe there isn't a lot there. (They are near the St. Georges metro stop but that isn't far from Pigalle . . . .)
Anyone know of any "good spots" in that neighborhood? I know once you get down towards Opera or over into the 10th there are several places but . . . . I'm having trouble tracking any down but maybe there aren't any right around there.
Wish I was going!
(They were moving to the 6th but a change of plans - so I'm posting my map of the 6th anyway since I had done that work for them already - and wanted to share in case anyone finds it useful)
To add to Parigi's good selections, there is Jean on Rue St. Lazare, the only Michelin star in the 9th; much more reasonable is Bourgogne Sud, Carte Blanche, Les Saisons, Casa Olympe and l'Aromatik. Just across the border into the 18th is Le Miroir. Starvation will not be a problem in the St. Georges neighborhood.
For you all that get to explore Paris an help the rest o us out.
My husband just texted about a new restaurant in the 9th called Les Rillettes (st Georges metro stop). Apparently very small but he said FABULOUS. Is coming home with a few recipes and a promise that we are going next time we are in Paris.
Just in case you are looking for something new. Let me know if you've been too.
