It goes without saying but Paris is the restaurant capital of the world. Sure, there is great food elsewhere. There might even be better high end food or the world’s best (whatever that means). But pound for pound Paris is amazing.
Having moved from Zurich (clean, wholesome, bland) to Paris we were just flabbergasted by all the food we had available.
This last was something I compiled with help from friends and colleagues. Sadly I suspect many (most) are gone and of these, well, we were just freakin’ hungry and less discerning than we might be later in our time in France.
