Enjoy wine while you dine because that's what Jacques Mélac wants from his customers. His restaurant is named after him. What makes it unique is that vines are planted in the wine cellar and all around the restaurant. In mid-September, it's grape harvest time and there's always a party out here. So if you're planning a trip to Paris, then be sure to join in. Don't expect to find the known wines like Château Petrus or Château Iquem as lesser known wines from the Languedoc or Loire regions are available.

Le Bistrot Paul Bert is more than a bistrot; it's a steakhouse done the French way. The prix fixe menu is brought to your table on a chalkboard, and the famous filet of beef cannot be ordered any way besides saignant: rare. It's worth it, but if you're looking for something a little bit more cooked, the other menu options are just as incredible. In season, the rabbit terrine is delicious, and it's the best place to try the pigeon that the French are always touting. The wine list is quite extensive and definitely worth a look.
This is a tiny bistro frequented by the locals for its scrumptious French food. It specializes in innovative French dishes, with different blends and flavors.

The Leopard Cafe is where the local musicians of Paris come and jam for the diners and the drinkers.

This hidden gem of a restaurant is sometimes confused with its neighbor, Bistrot Paul Bert, even though the cuisine is worlds apart! With hanging wine bottles serving as light fixtures above the bar, an open kitchen concept and large wooden grid windows overlooking the street this charming eatery and wine bar has an ambiance locals flock to. The menu focuses on small plate dishes with seasonal ingredients used at the whim of the chef.
With so many tourist traps offering raclette, La Serpent qui Danse stands out, serving the traditional Savoyard dish properly. La Serpent Qui Danse seats just 42 people, serving an ever-changing menu of specials. What really matters, though, is the raclette cheese, served on the traditional apparatus that melts the huge wedge just fast enough for diners to scrape it onto plates of unlimited potatoes, a choice of meat plates (or a vegetarian option), and bread, with a simple side of green salad. It helps that it's a deal: just EUR18 for the meal before wine. -Emily Monaco
Enter Fatima Hal's Moroccan restaurant and you'll find yourself in a palace from 1001 Nights. Just as perfect as the decor is the cuisine, from its various couscous dishes to its tajines, and its unforgettable entrees.
