The American wine distributor on his favourite restaurants in the 11th arrondissement, a great local food shop and “one of the nicest food markets in Paris”


Josh’s favourite spots in the 11th arrondissement. “This neighbourhood is really awesome,” he says. “Within 10 minutes, there are probably 10 really great restaurants.”

La Buvette

67, rue Saint-Maur, Paris 75011; +33 9 83 56 94 11
Hip wine bar in the 11th. “There is another Buvette in the 9th but they’re not connected. We go to the one near our house.”

Le Servan

32 Rue Saint-Maur, 75011 Paris; +33 1 55 28 51 82,
A great new bistro in the 11th arrondissement run by Manila-born chef Tatiana Levha, formerly of L’Arpège and L’Astrance.


80 Rue de Charonne, 75011 Paris, France; +33 1 43 67 38 29,
Lavishly-praised restaurant which opened in 2012 under chef Bertrand Grébaut. “We also go to its sister restaurants, Clamato and Septime Caves, both close by.”

Le Dauphin

131 Avenue Parmentier, 75011 Paris, France; +33 1 55 28 78 88,
The wine bar attached to Inaki Aizpitarte’s celebrated restaurant Le Chateaubriand. “It’s too hard to get into Le Chateaubriand so we go here instead.”

Au Passage

1 bis, Passage Saint-Sébastien, 75011 Paris;
Great little restaurant in the upper Marais, much loved by Paris foodies.

Bistrot Paul Bert

18 Rue Paul Bert, 75011 Paris, France; +33 1 43 72 24 01
An outstanding neighbourhood restaurant renowned for its meat dishes. “We go here a lot.”


Le Zingam

75 rue du Chemin Vert, 75011 Paris; +33 7 87 55 65 56
“This has become our main food shop since it opened. They don’t have a huge selection but what they have is very good.” – Josh

Boucherie Lecaille

28 Av Parmentier, 75011 Paris; +33 1 47 00 35 40
“Our local butchers – not the best in Paris but a good neighbourhood shop.”

Marché d’Aligre

Place d’Aligre, 75012 Paris (closed Monday)
“This is one of the nicest food markets in Paris. We used to go here all the time, until Le Zingam opened.”
