An American in Paris’s Kosher Restaurants
My husband Josh is a HUGE foody. He grew up in a family that owns a chain of restaurants in Arizona, and has always been surrounded by a passion for food. During his childhood, his family ate out at restaurants every night except for on Shabbat. His parents worked so hard during the day that they did not have time or energy to cook dinner after a long day of work. Josh was raised on restaurant food and doesn’t remember a time when his family did not eat out during the week. Restaurant food is his comfort food. Since we have gotten married, I haven’t had much practice cooking since Josh always prefers to go out to eat or order in food. Paris has over 200 Kosher restaurants, and Josh’s goal is to try most of them while we are here. We have also already returned to a few restaurants that we really liked more than once. We have eaten lunch and dinner at a restaurant every day since we have been here. To paint the picture more clearly, he even made up a song about how much he loves Paris because there are so many Kosher restaurants.
Even though sometimes, I think that it is atypical for a young married couple to spend so much money eating out all the time, I realize that it serves as great material for a blog reviewing Kosher restaurants in Paris. Below, you will find a list of the restaurants we have eaten at, their locations, and my experiences dining there. I have also included a couple of non-kosher restaurants that have vegetarian options and dessert destinations. Bon appetite!
