Caroline Mignot's New Guide

Recommended Posts

I picked up Caroline Mignot's new Paris restaurant guide last week at Cocotte. The book has a great lay-out broken down by arrondissement with maps at the beginning of each section. What I particularly like about Caroline's book is that it doesn't just stick to classic tried and true places, but mingles some classics with sandwich places, cafes and just plain greasy spoons.

The book is also only 10€, what a steal.

I bought her book as well (at Cocotte!) I was a little disappointed, but only because I didn't really find that it included many places that I didn't know about or have in other guides. In fairness, if you own most guides, it's pretty difficult to find one that is different fom the rest. But you are right, for 10€ it is a pretty good deal. And I love her blog for current places.

I wish more guides would include ethnic places, the now defunt Zurban did, but since its demise I haven't found anything that takes its place in that category.

And I love her blog for current places.

In my post about Apr 08 restos I recounted meals at two places she and no one else "discovered," so I'm a loyal reader of her blog too.
