I am sure that I am not the only person with my flights booked, tickets organised and looking forward to this year’s Maison et Objet, 19th-23rd January. Inspired by this upcoming event, Design Insider has chosen to bring you dining inspiration from our Parisian friends and to do this we have joined forces with Christophe and Slanelle Amav, the food loving duo behind ‘Paris ci l’addition.’
‘Paris ci l’addition’ is a guide to the Parisian restaurants loved by Christophe and Slanelle. Paris ci l’addition brings us the best restaurants in Paris and shares the couples favorite discoveries, refraining from posting anything that does not meet their high culinary standards their focus is on the restaurants they really recommend to their friends. Christophe is also the author of the blog ‘A manger et à voir‘, where for the last four years he has treated his readers to his recipes for pastries and savory dishes. Slanelle has her own lifestyle blog ‘Slanelle Style‘ discussing fashion, music, travel, beauty, which she has written for more than thirteen years, she also loves to taste the culinary creations of Christophe.
4. What would be your perfect food day in Paris?For breakfast we’d definitely go to Du Pain et des Idees for good croissants and pastries. For coffee, we would head to Cafe Lomi because they make their own coffee, and then on to Filakia for lunch (it’s Greek and they serve the best souvlaki!) Eventually, for dinner, we would go to Neva where Beatriz Gonzalez is the amazing cook and Yannick Tranchant creates amazing at deserts.
Since 2010 Café Lomi have selected the best green coffee beans and roasted them using the best equipment to prepare speciality coffee and teach its use. Lomi is an active member of the international speciality coffee community, working to promote good coffee businesses around the world by hosting and organising events. Lomi’s know-how has also been recognised many times including Best Roaster of France in 2011, French Champion of Latte Art in 2011, 2014, 2016, French Champion of Coffee in Good Spirits in 2016 and 2017.
A mixture of traditional Greek cuisine and French gastronomy, Filakia is a restaurant that takes their cues from street food transforming it into gourmet cuisine. Their flagship product, souvlaki, is revisited for unique culinary experiences and homemade fries or candied lemon potatoes complete the dish.
The location on Neva Cuisine is unlikely—the slightly melancholy Quartier de l’Europe, a grid of streets behind the Gare Saint Lazare named for major European cities—but Mexican-born chef Beatriz Gonzalez’s new restaurant Neva Cuisine has become a hit destination thanks to her superb contemporary French cooking. The Neva occupies the former premises of a 1930s-vintage café.
Nestled in the famous Golden Triangle of Paris, Le George at the Four Seasons Hotel sits in an original 1928 Art Deco building boasting spectacular views of the City of Light and Eiffel Tower. Le George restaurant and its Chef Simone Zanoni offer light and modern Mediterranean-style cuisine designed for sharing, with many dishes available in half portions, and a balanced, healthy cuisine bursting with flavour and freshness. Interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon created a timelessly chic and relaxed setting drawing on modern influences. The room has a distinctly Parisian vibe with a highlight of a stunning vaulted ceiling that works in harmony with the work of art by the contemporary artist Junior Fritz Jacquet and the large windows looking onto the Marble Courtyard.
Whether you decide to order a healthy vegan meal, Japanese ramen, indulge in Texan BBQ ribs or splurge on fine dining at Neva Cuisine or The Greorge we would love to know where you visit, even if your only treat is an artisan coffee or exquisite traditional pastry.
