BP take: From the couple behind the wildly popular Hidden Kitchen, a fine dining restaurant in a beautiful space next to the Palais Royal. Downstairs, a more casual wine bar is a convivial evening spot (don’t miss the fried chicken).

“…overall, Perkins, New Orleans-born and Boston-bred, is set to become one of the most interesting young chefs in Paris right now, no mean feat for an American.” – Alexander Lobrano, France Today (2012)

An absolute favorite for Paris by Mouth

52, rue de Richelieu 75001; Tel: 01 42 97 54 40; Both the restaurant and wine bar are open Monday-Friday in the evenings.
