This book did not steer us wrong on our recent trip to Paris. I dined at six of the restaurants recommended by the author and had terrific meals at all of them. One of the restaurants, Au Bascou, specializes in Basque cooking. My husband and I decided to try it on his birthday and we weren't disappointed...everything (the wine, service, food) was wonderful.

This book turned out to be an excellent resource during our recent trip to Paris. We ended up trying 5 restaurants he recommended, and all were excellent and great experiences.

Alec assembles a concise collection of wonderful addresses you'd be unlikely to find on your own. Like a Michelin guide for the even-more-discriminating, this book provides much more insight on each restaurant than any other guide I have seen. The emphasis is on small and unique places, with a smattering of the Grandes Dames.
I also suggest his columns for Gourmet Magazine, which appear regularly.
Goodogg
Love it!! The author does a wonderful job of making me feel like he is talking just to me as he explains his early love of french food. This book is so much more than just a listing and descriptipon of the 100 best restaurants in Paris, he really does a great job of making you feel like you are there too.

30 euros per person is inexpensive!? This dining may be a bit finer than my wallet can handle. But the stories were good and I'll definitely try to find some of the places he mentions.

Really nicely done excerpts about nice bistros in Paris. Good focus on restaurants that won't break the bank. Excerpts captured the atmosphere as well as the food.

Great book about the food culture in Paris. The recommended falafel restaurant in the Marais is not to be missed.
