Paris France

Paris is a city of two halves. Not just geographically (the River Seine divides the city into the Left Bank and Right Bank), but also metaphorically. It is a major global city, home to over 12 million people, yet it retains a traditional, often village-y, feel.

Stroll down the Champs-Elysees, past luxury stores like Louis Vuitton and Hugo Boss (this is the fashion capital of the world, after all), and admire the magnificent Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre. Then there are the winding streets and windmill of Montmartre, the verdant parks of the Latin Quarter, and the serenity of Canal St-Martin, lined with artists’ studios and boho-chic boutiques.

Add to all this the fact that Paris has more than 10,000 cafes and restaurants, ranging from low-key brasseries serving lip-smacking crepes to Michelin-star temples of haute cuisine, and it's easy to see why Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world.

Where to eat in Paris - Semilla

Semilla

Semilla is a new modern bistro space – all natural stone, brick, polished concrete and exposed pipes – with an open kitchen manned by students from the renowned Ferrandi culinary school who serve up contemporary cooking using some of France’s best produce. Expect dishes such as a rib steak for two with bordelaise sauce and squid risotto with a persillade (a parsley-based sauce). Desserts are terrific, too – with sweets such as citrus fruit soup with orange flower ice cream, and aloe vera cream with exotic fruits and a caramel tuile.

Insider Tip: If you're in the mood for fish, come here on a Friday when they replace all the meat dishes with fish.

Where to eat in Paris - Abri

Abri

Opened in autumn 2012, this is a value-for-money Japanese-run restaurant that bagged a Le Fooding award only six months after opening. Behind the simple blue door beneath a sign with a coffee cup, young chef Katsuaki Okiyama and his team prepare exquisite food in an open kitchen with a plancha (flat-top grill). Abri is popular for its €22 (US$28.70) four-course lunch and €38.50 six-course dinner tasting menu, where you can expect dishes like potato soup with coffee-cardamom foam, and grilled yellow pollack with Chinese cabbage and squash in smoked-salt butter sauce.

Insider Tip: If you're in town on a Monday or Saturday stop by for a “katsandwich”, or gourmet sandwich, which will set you back €13 including either a glass of wine, organic juice or tea. It's even available to go.
