|Paris has a restaurant to suit every budget, but a look for any other kind of cuisine than French might take a while!
Chez Láçna et Mimille
This intimate but very elegant restaurant has one of the most fabulous terraces in Paris, overlooking a little park with a fountain and comical equestrian statue. And the food is excellent; classic mains with a twist include navarin d'agneau (a kind of lamb stew) and ravioles de romans au beurre basilique (ravioli with basil butter).
The 'Auvergne Embassy' is the place to head for if you're feeling famished. This 100-year-old restaurant offers traditional regional dishes such as salade tiáçáçde de lentilles vertes du Puy (warm salad of green Puy lentils), a great lead-up to the house speciality: saucisse d'Auvergne á l'aligot (Auvergne sausage served with a potato and cheese puráçe).
There's often a wait for a table at Chez Marianne's black-and-white-tiled restaurant space, but the phenomenal mix-and-match platters, with choices including olives, hummus, eggplant and much more, are worth every minute. Otherwise you can pack a picnic from the deli to take to the place des Vosges, or pick up felafel sandwiches from the takeaway window.
