Derrière

"ohmahgah Foie Gras Mac n Cheese ohmahgah. Also, they have a cute cocktail bar hidden behind a wardrobe. http://derriere-resto.com/restaurant/paris/derriere/menus/"

Le 404

"Owned by the same folks that own Derriere (and pretty much right next door), this place makes delicious North African food. I've been so many times. It's a fan fave for me and my pals during Fashion Week. http://404-resto.com/restaurant/paris/404/about/"

Deux fois plus de piment

"Never in my life did I expect to go to Paris and obsess over Chinese food, but I swear this is the best Chinese food I've ever had. I have it every time I go. I dream about it all the time. So good. https://www.facebook.com/Deux-fois-plus-de-piment-restaurant-de-Sichuan-780309075369882/"

Les Papilles

"Neighborhood bistro with classic French fair and lots of wine (and butter!). Odds of ever finding tourists here are slim to none. This place is very, very French, down to the somewhat scruff service. http://www.lespapillesparis.fr/#about-1-1"

Le Café Marly

"This is a moderate tourist trap, so I wouldn't go here for a meal, but one of my favorite things to do is to go at night, have some wine and share an eclair the size of my head with my friends while overlooking the Louvre all lit up. http://cafe-marly.com/en/"

Mama Shelter Paris

"Mama Shelter is a small hotel (that I recommend, but only if you want to stay on the outskirts a hike from the metro) near Pere Lachaise cemetery. The restaurant is a bit more on the nouveau-French end, but the food is great. The locals love this place and it gets PACKED, so prepare for that. http://www.mamashelter.com/en/paris/restaurants/restaurant/"

Marché des Enfants Rouges

"Food stand/market with many cheap, yummy eats. http://marchedesenfantsrougesfr.com/"

83 Rue de la Tombe Issoire

"Atelier A-2 Jim Haynes' Paris Sunday Dinners. Not quite a restaurant, but one of my absolute favorite things that I've ever done in Paris. Jim is an American ex-pat who's been hosting Sunday dinners for well over 30 years. All kinds of people show up, tourists and local regulars alike. People are from all over the world. Jim and his friends take turns cooking in exchange for a small donation to recoup the costs of the food and wine. Instructions are on his site. http://www.jim-haynes.com/"

Le Comptoir Général

"Fun bar. They also serve an Indian cafeteria-style brunch on most weekends. http://www.yelp.com/biz/le-comptoir-general-paris-2"

L'Embuscade

"Cool bar if you want to dance. Grrrreat music and crowd, but it's tiny and hot. http://www.yelp.com/biz/l-embuscade-paris-2"

Candelaria

"A bar hidden behind what looks like a rundown taco joint. Damn fine cocktails. http://www.candelariaparis.com/"

Antoine et Lili

"These are all over the city. They have different iterations - a home store, a women's clothing shop and a kid's store. I buy knit sweaters and accessories (leather gloves, winter hats, scarves) there all the time, but their dresses and such lean towards the old-lady side of things."

RealGold

"TINY hole in the wall boutique where everything is designed and made by an amazing young designer from Thailand. She uses a lot of reclaimed fabrics. www.realgold.fr"

Merci

"Kind of like a small-ish department store with high-end goods. A lot of the brands you can find at home, but sometimes they have special pieces. http://www.merci-merci.com/en/"

Oxyde

"Another tiny boutique. There's three of them in the city. This is usually where I go to pick up a pair of Spring Courts every time I'm in town (aka the original tennis shoe. They're kind of like better made/looking converses in lots of fun patterns)."

The Broken Arm

"This is kind of like Paris' version of Opening Ceremony. It's pricey, but they have cool collaborations along the way. I got a dope pair of CarvenxBroken Arm sneakers there ages ago. http://the-broken-arm.com/en/"
