One of the things every tourist to Paris wants a decent piece of, is the local cuisine. This makes sense, since Paris is known worldwide for the food you can get here. However, you could dine at every blog-listed spot you see, and not come away without having experienced the basic tenet of French culture, unless you ate a hearty brunch at one of the following locations.
