Located between the Opera and the Grands Boulevards, Trattoria l'Oca Nera is a warm, friendly Italian restaurant. Designed elegantly with choicest of paintings, drapes and colors, the restaurant oozes charm and style. With an option of out-door seating, it is the perfect place for a breezy evening with good company and great Italian food.

If you are nostalgic for the dishes that your mom used to cook; if fish doesn't come in the form of sticks and mashed potatoes do not come in flakes; if you remember the nice smell of Sunday family cooking: this restaurant is yours. It is located in the 9th arrondissement near the Folies Bergères, in a small courtyard away from the street noise. Alban, Julien and the two Nicolases, four mamma's boys, prepare a simple cuisine full of smells and flavors. The icing on the cake: one Tuesday night a month, the cooks' mothers take their place in the kitchen. Then they give customers some useful advice and offer the day's recipe.
Many Parisian restaurants attract customers based upon the French stereotype of the cold, brusque waiters and atmosphere offset by incredible food. Les Diables au Thym holds true for the second, but not so for the first: the food is, indeed, incredible, the menu changing according to the seasons, but the staff and dining room are quite welcoming. The open kitchen allows diners to watch as food is expertly prepared and plated, and servers are attentive and willing to explain anything that one may need. Each course can be selected from five choices that change according to what is fresh: the daily options are available at the website. -Emily Monaco
For true Tuscan cuisine and Italian wines, there might be a few that can rival I Golosi in Paris. This unassuming place is not your fancy Italian restaurant that will make a dent in your pocket, but a friendly trattoria tucked away in the Passage Verdeau. This two levels establishment has an old worldly charm to it, while the ground floor is an Italian deli selling pastas, oils and Italian cooking goods, it is the small room upstairs that dishes out fabulous food that will leave you and your wallet very happy. Using only the freshest of ingredients available, the menu changes weekly and you can also find creative, well thought dishes such as octopus salad with beets, thyme and lemon veal shanks, and risotto primavera. And the tiramisu is just divine. Their wine bar has over 500 Italian wines and is simply irresistible. It is indeed a little haven for Italian food lovers and oenophiles.
With a name that translates into 'the red ball', La Boule Rouge serves delectable Tunisian cuisine. But worry not! the food is not very spicy to make you see stars. Do partake from their kemia range, which is a popular favorite of the patrons. La Boule Rouge is elegantly embellished in shades of brown to create a desert ambiance. The immaculate table tops surrounded by wooden furnishing offer guests an intimate ambiance to dine in. This restaurant was once visited by Nicholas Sarkozy, you never know whom you may brush shoulders with, when you visit next.
New York comes to Paris at Encore. The decor inside features wooden tables and large doors that open out into a patio, blending the interior and exterior space. Modern European cuisine is served in an intimate atmosphere: the restaurant seats 25 people. Desserts here are phenomenal, and the coconut mousse with pineapple sorbet is not to be missed.
Sannine is a beautiful Middle-Eastern restaurant in the 9th Arrondisement that is a favorite of locals and tourists alike. Serving dishes that bring back fond memories of Lebanese people, this restaurant is unsurprisingly crowded at most times. On entering the premises one is won over by the warm hospitality and the impressive traditional paintings on the walls and ceilings take this feeling even further. The key dishes to try out here are Eggplant Caviar, Tabbouleh, Baked Kebbe, Falafel and Baklava. Large groups can also share Mezze platters.
For traditional Chinese hotpot, Anli is the place to be. There's nothing kitschy about this Chinese establishment, where the staff's French is limited at best and most of the patrons are Chinese immigrants looking for a taste of home. While the menu includes several Chinese dishes, the hotpots to share are the main event. At 28 or 32 euros for two people, you'll receive an assortment of meats, vegetables, tofu and noodles. You can also order à la carte items to cook in the broth, which is served either spicy or not (or both, with a nifty divider to separate the two flavors). For two hungry people, the amounts given in the prix fixe menus may leave you wanting more, so browse the à la carte list and add one or two items that interest you to make this traditional meal as filling as it is tasty. -Emily Monaco
Le Privilege is a nightclub, restaurant and lounge, all clubbed together under one roof. Nestled within Le Palace theater, this place was formerly Studio 54, a member's only club. In 2010, it opened its doors as Le Privilege to welcome people from all walks of life. Covered in hues of gold and furnished with comfortable lounge chairs, chic is the word that springs to mind when one enters this place. Visit this place for a vibrant night out with friends.
To savor gourmet French cuisine served with excellent vintage wine drop-in at the Le Zinc des Cavistes. The cushions pinned up to the wall give an unique look to the place and the hanging lamps emanating orange light complete the classy look. Sitting in the cozy and plush chairs, you can enjoy the local delicacies offered on the menu. What is more interesting is the wine completing the meals. Le Zinc des Cavistes with its serene and peaceful ambience is a perfect place to enjoy your drink and fade-out all the chaos of a busy metro like Paris. Apart from this, it also hosts wine-tasting for amateurs and lectures to brief wine-enthusiasts on finer aspects of Oenology. What better place to taste wine and learn about them then Paris?
Au Limonaire is a small charming diner which can accommodate only a limited number of people! For dinner, you will have to book a table in advance, but for a drink you can just walk in. The food is cheap and portions are generous accompanied by great service. A cozy, friendly and traditional place where you can sit and listen to live performances of French songs T-Su after 10p. Performances take place on a small stage and you can contribute generously when the singer passes his hat along for collections.
Green Pizz, which sounds like 'Green Peace,' open since February 2010 in the 9th arrondissement, is the first organic pizzeria of Paris. All ingredients are not always organic, because consuming only organic products is sometimes bad for the environment, but in this restaurant all services are eco-responsible. The theme all-around is green: the paint, low-energy bulbs, water saver, recycled and recyclable packaging, and takeaway bamboo cutlery – even the maintenance: the sorting of the trash and electric scooters for delivery. As for the pizzas, they are made with fresh products only, which are mostly organic, such as the bread. The menu is varied and very attractive.
