Where to Stay and Eat in Paris in 2022

Where to Stay and Eat in Paris in 2022

Travelling to Paris this year? Here’s our pick of great restaurants and accommodation in the City of Light. Note: This article is part of a bigger magazine feature called “What’s New in Post-Lockdown Paris”

Street caviar

Affordable caviar? C’était impossible – until the introduction of this new initiative by Prunier to provide the fishy delicacy at a down-to-earth price. The brand, associated with big spenders, has revolutionised in the hope of reaching a wider audience. Blending Michelin-star style delights with fast food might seem an eccentric proposition, but now snacks like pitta bread, grilled cheese sandwiches and burgers, all with a generous helping of caviar included, have arrived on the menu. They start from as little as €12 to eat in or take away! caviarhouse-prunier.fr

Pinky Bloom

Uncompromisingly kitsch, Pinky Bloom serves fluffy pancakes, pastries and fruit-covered cupcakes in a candy pink floral wonderland near the Eiffel Tower that you’ll either love or loathe. It’s filled with floral garlands, neon signs and, of course, perfectly presented snacks. It’s a great combination for unforgettable Instagram snaps – and guaranteed to coax you to see la vie en rose! pinkybloom.fr

Sapid by Alain Ducasse

Alain Ducasse, the French chef with more Michelin stars than anyone else in the world, needs no introduction – but now, after causing a stir by leaving his restaurant at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée, he has launched a brand new space in the 10th arrondissement with a 95% plant-based menu. He promises delicious food in a refectory-style environment with prices from €20 to €30, drink included. For health-conscious, environmentally-friendly fare, it’s the obvious choice. Plus don’t forget to check out his new cookie factory, also opening soon! sapid.fr

Le Grand Véfour

This is one of Paris’s most historic restaurants. Everyone from Victor Hugo, pen in hand, to the Marquis de Sade, along with his ladies of the night, has dined here. The upmarket eatery has been reinvented with a new concept of light and affordable brasserie-style dining – and for the first time ever the legendary gastronomy spot also boasts a terrace. The spectacular glitzy fresco interiors remain intact in this location so beloved of famous Parisians for hundreds of years. grand-vefour.com


In answer to zero-contact culture, Pazzi is the city’s first ever automated restaurant, a pizzeria where food’s prepared by a robot right before your eyes. Customise toppings by touchscreen, then watch the robot cook work its magic on everything else. A unique QR code delivered to your phone unlocks the serving hatch, eliminating the chance of anyone else sneakily snatching your snacks! The technology, eight years in the making, has arrived at just the right time. pazzi.co

CitizenM Champs-Élysées

This quirky, lively, affordable luxury brand – complete with eccentric interior décor – has created a new addition to its Parisian hotel collection with a spot near the Champs-Élysées. Its self-service check-in enables guests to avoid contact with staff. There’s a rooftop bar with panoramas and the Arc de Triomphe half a mile away. Plus, the beds have perhaps the most comfortable, fleece-lined sheets known to the hotel industry! citizenm.com

Cheval Blanc Paris

This luxurious new hotel instantly impresses, with its white horse statue by Frank Gehry in the lobby. It also shares its name with the legendary wine brand that oenophiles love. The hotel boasts the world’s first ever Dior spa and the largest indoor hotel pool in Europe, plus great gastronomy alongside incredible views. A mere ten-minute walk away from the Louvre and many other city sights, it’s a great base for exploration – that’s if you can prise yourself away from the marble bathrooms and their luscious Maison Dior scented toiletries! chevalblanc.com



Hôtel Rochechouart

After closing for an intensive top to bottom renovation, this four-star favourite deep in the heart of Montmartre is now back. For those who appreciate the bohemian feel of this district, the Art Deco aesthetics of this hotel and restaurant are sure to please. Moulin Rouge is ten minutes away on foot. The rooftop terrace – and some Deluxe suites – boast spectacular Sacré-Cœur vistas, while legendary music hall La Cigale is across the street. hotelrochechouart.com
