Ahh, Paris.  The city of lights.  With a reputation as a romantic city with culture, art, French wine, and food to drool for.  Walking through Paris is a treat in itself, every turn takes you down streets lined with cafés, bars, and bakeries.  Made up of multiple neighborhoods, Le Marais is my favorite go-to neighborhood when searching for restaurants and bars.  In my opinion, Le Marais restaurants make up a majority of the incredible Parisian cuisine.

Le Marais is located between the third and fourth arrondissements and means “The Marsh”.  According to me, no trip to Paris is complete without visiting Le Marais.  Strolling through the streets you’ll come across plenty of sites, bites, and cordials.  But don’t just take my word for it; decide for yourself.  Are the best restaurants in Le Marais Paris?

While Marais has many options in terms of food and drink, there are also other reasons to venture to this part of Paris.  While you’re in the area don’t miss Place des Vosges, the oldest planned square in Paris.  It’s here in this park that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt once shared an apartment.  And if you’re into art then definitely don’t pass up the Musée National Picasso (Picasso Museum).

While my list of best places to eat in Le Marais was short and concise, the truth is that there is so much more to Paris than can be discovered in a single trip.  It would take years of living in this romantic and elegant city to do more than scratch the surface of what Paris has to offer.  An intriguing and exciting challenge that I hope to one day accomplish.
