The guy knows his stuff.My favorite thing in life is to flaneur and EAT in Paris, which I've done whenever I got the chance.This book, along with "Adrian Leeds Top 100 Cheap Insider Paris Restaurants" all you need to find the real TRADITIONAL stuff to help you avoid the ever-growing number of mediocre tourist trap restaurants plaguing Paris these days. I always reference these two books every time I go to my favorite city on the planet. A lot of folks seem to be unaware that lately in some of the "name" bistros and brassieres that have been taken over by the chains the food isn't even prepared onsite anymore - some even sacrilegiously brought in from a remote mass kitchen and microwaved on the spot - then brought to your table for a mere 30 Euros per plat (it's true) - this book will help you avoid all that.Beef bourguignon, coq au vin, blanquette de veau, cassoulet, pot-au-feu, confit de canard, choucroute royale - all the classics ... Alexander Lobrano will tell you where you can find it, and where it's done right.Enough said. Anyone who travels to Paris looking for the best in traditional Parisian fare without this book (and Adrian's as well)is nuts.

Wonderfully written, this guide gives you in depth information about 100 restaurants in Paris, from simple bistrots to top restaurants.It is organized by areas which makes it easy to use, you can also find the info by type of cuisine.A fun read if you plan a trip to Paris,

I will be making my first trip to Paris soon. While browsing about online looking for information on all things Parisian, I came across a foodie blog that mentioned the author of this book. After reading the summary, I decided to order it. First of all, it is just fun to read. The descriptions of the restaurants and the owners, the recommendations regarding the food, and the reminisces of the author are very entertaining. The book is organized by arrondissement which is helpful. Restaurants, bistros and cafes at different price points are included. Contact and location information are also included.I have two reservations made for my trip already. I ordered the book in paperback. It's too large to take with me, so I ordered another copy for my tablet.Merci, Alexander!

Lobrano's food sensibility and fine writing skills make for very entertaining reading. HUNGRY IN PARIS takes you through his very selective list of the best restaurants in Paris--not the trendiest or most expensive or the hottest--just those restaurants that have captured his interest. He's not afraid to give a place a good swift quick (look at what he says about Arpege's pricey wine list or the uninspiring dining room). There are also fine food-related essays on Paris. This book would be an excellent thing to put on your iPad for your next trip to Paris. I wish I had this last year during my stay in this magnificent city. I wish all great eating cities boasted this kind of guide.

One of several dining guides I'm using as I prepare for our trip to Paris. I thoroughly enjoy the chapters on diverse topics (On eating the unspeakable; table for one; etc.). The personal writing style invites me to step into the other world of Paris and not stay within my comfort zone. The indexes will be really useful. Restaurants by style, price, etc. Thank you.

Deliciously verbose, dishy and personal. Alec's Lobrano's food writing will stir your hunger and your curiosity for the city, past and present. His restaurants picks are excellent and relevant and will take you places that everyday travel guidebooks to Paris never could. A must for anyone who enjoys the real Paris.

Trying to decide the best places to eat in Paris can be a bit overwhelming for a first time visitor like me. The possibilities seem almost infinite. This book does a great job of offering interesting possibilities in each of the city's arrondissements. The book is well written and comprehensive, with reviews of many different kinds of restaurants, from wine bars and small bistros to haute cuisine. The author is extremely knowledgeable, and I especially appreciated the occasional chapters which gave his advice or experience with eating in Paris. While I don't normally read books about restaurants, and while I'll probably never eat at the vast majority of the restaurants, I actually enjoyed reading his reflections on what he considers the most worthwhile restaurants to consider in Paris.

I bought this AFTER I came back from spending 10 days in Paris. :(Had I gotten it before I went it would have helped a great deal.It is a great, very informative book. Well worth the money.
