Our 50 Favorite Restaurants for Winter 2022/3
Plus a Top 10 list that reveals my most-loved addresses
After publishing our collecting of 50 Favorites for Fall, we’re back with an updated list for winter. We update our recommendations quarterly to reflect what we want to eat in the current season. We also revise to add what’s new and delicious, and to remove the restaurants that no longer excite us. In the three months since we published our fall favorites, I’ve personally tested 45 restaurants (booking anonymously, paying full price) to see if they deserve a spot on this list.
What’s new this time: we’ve swapped out sixteen restaurants - dropping some because of chef changes and others because they’re not at their best during the cold months. Some fell away to make room for exciting new openings. A few old favorites have rejoined this list after return visits.
Also new: I focused in to select my top ten favorites for those who feel overwhelmed by the choice between 50 restaurants. These truly are my personal favorites right now, all visited recently.
When you finish reading about those, the remaining favorites are organized by category, including restaurants serving classic french fare, modern & creative cuisine, tasting menus, oysters & seafood, and crêpes. You’ll also find wine bars with small plates and spots for breakfast & lunch. As always, paid subscribers can pose a specific dining question (520 answered to date!) in our Q&A post, but this article should give you plenty of exciting options for dining this winter in Paris.
