Quoi, vous ne mangez pas de viande? This is an old refrain every vegetarian has heard at least a million times upon ordering at a regular Parisian restaurant or bistro. Not any more, though: these days, going meat-free in the city of foie gras and boeuf bourguigon is not such a big deal. Quite the opposite, actually: from sophisticated gourmet restaurants to counter-only little places, fast foods and street carts, the options for vegetarians and even vegans are exciting and diverse. Here’s our little selection just to give you an idea of how much things have changed.
Gentle Gourmet
Established in 2009 in the Bastille area, Gentle Gourmet aims to offer an incomparable experience of vegan haute cuisine by combining the finesse of French gastronomy with an ethical and ecological dimension, all the while preserving that of pleasure. If you wish to try some astonishing vegan versions of classic French dishes and desserts in a sophisticated ambience, this is just the right place for you.
Le Potager de Charlotte
Mother Charlotte and sons David and Adrien: this is the family/team behind le Potager de Charlotte, a cozy vegan restaurant not far from Gare du Nord whose ambition is offering a savory and hearty cuisine without meat, fish and dairy products. Mission impossible? Not really. The food here is creative, beautiful to look at, and delicious. The ingredients are 95% organic and preferably local.
42 Degrés
42 Celsius degree is the maximum temperature that can be employed in vegan cuisine in order to preserve all the food’s nutritional properties perfectly intact. 42 Degrés, in the Poissonière area, specializes in raw “bistronomie”, a mix of bistro food and haute cuisine, naturally vegan and healthy. Go for Sunday brunch and you’ll be able to sample a huge variety of dishes from the buffet.
Just a stone's throw from the beautiful Canal St. Martin, this post-industrial-style restaurant with three large windows and an open kitchen is housed inside the spaces of a former atelier and serves vegetarian cuisine (90% vegetable) based on organic products.
This simple and cozy vegan and vegetarian place near Les Halles offers a mix of French recipes, street food-style delicacies and international dishes based on seasonal ingredients, along with organic fresh juices and desserts. Order the set lunch menu to try a little bit of everything.
