The Gontran Cherrier bakery is located in a busy area in the north of Paris. After having worked in the family bakery, then in retail and with a few famous chefs, Gontran Cherrier published numerous books on bread and tartines (toasted bread with various toppings). He became a famous presenter on the channel Cuisine TV. His famous bread was produced strictly for restaurants, but the public could not buy any...until now. At last, he opened his first bakery in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. Try the whole-grain baguette, bread with curry and grain (especially great paired with meat) and another with chickpeas and lemon (to accompany fish).
Shhh! Don't let this get around, but the Abbesses district at the foot of Montmartre is one of the coolest and youngest scenes in Paris, but without the disadvantages, namely an invasion by hipsters from all over, of being well known. And in Les Abbesses, the reference is the Sancerre, a fun little bar for drinking and conversing over a rock soundtrack. Brunch on Sundays. Simple and good dishes for lunch and dinner.

Don't let this restaurant's touristy location on the Place du Tertre deter you; it may not be the hidden gem of Paris, but Chez Eugène is a great place for people-watching. The waiters dress up in 1930s style, complete with suspenders and newsboy caps, and you can snag a seat on the terrace in good weather to watch the painters in the square sell their work. It's also the perfect place to treat yourself to an apéritif after scaling the Butte Montmartre, as the stairs up the hill will lead you directly to this square. Do bear in mind that you're here for the location, not the food. The prices for the main courses are a bit high, but for a drink and a quick snack off the appetizer menu, there's no place better! -Emily Monaco
