Walking in the sunset light the other day I suddenly realised how quiet and empty my busy neighbourhood has become. Like every year, most Parisians are leaving for their Summer Holidays and quite a melancholic ambiance has fallen over the city.

Needless to say, lots of those instagrammable restaurants that you may have on your list for your upcoming trip are going to be closed for the next month. Maybe the quietness won’t bother you, but not finding a place to have lunch can be quite tricky in such big city.

Don’t forget to check les horaires for those places you would like to visit and try and here are some wonderful options for your lunch or dinner time...

Such a unique place with a breathtaking décor, right in the heart of Gare de Lyon, an important point de depart in Paris.

The most chic bistro in Paris, close to Le Marais neighborhood and also a few minutes away from Notre-Dame. A cosy and intimate ambiance with mottled mirrors, painted ceilings and candlelit atmosphere, all accompanied by Helmi Derbal’s delicious French Menu.

Balagan, hebrew for “joyful bazaar”, is a perfect place to go for lunch or dinner. Just a few two steps from the Jardin des Tuileries and the Place Vendôme, and just a street away from Rue Saint-Honoré, a great shopping area.

Dorothée Meilichzon, Parisian designer, mixed graphic forms and Mediterranean references and created a luminous refined atmosphere: matte col­ors, unfin­ished wood, cop­per, the silky touch of stone, and the bril­liance of enam­eled ceramics, ochre, and green tapes­tries.

Olivier Bon chose to open a new restau­rant in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Assaf Granit and Uri Navon, two of the most famous Israeli chefs. Head chef of Balagan is Dan Yosha, a young tal­ent from Machne-Yehuda in Jerusalem.

The menu has the amazing culinary richness of the Middle East: a col­lec­tion of play­ful Meze, Levantine Shish Barak, wood-grilled egg­plant, sautéed cala­mari, grilled veal sweet­breads, Moroccan-Israeli arti­choke ragout, fes­tive Mansaf lamb, Jerusalem-style sea bass, cous­cous, and more.

Dana is a fragile dreamer, they say, arriving in Paris four years ago, for love, and the city has been constantly changing her life since then. Hers is a world of books, (Marguerite Duras, Simone de Beauvoir, Anne Berest), expos, long walks sur les quais de Seine, pink skies, fine wine and peonies.
