Looking for the best vegetarian & vegan restaurants in Paris? French cuisine may not be known as vegetarian-friendly, but what can you expect from a traditional menu with canard, boeuf bourguignon and foie gras? However, many new vegetarian restaurants have emerged in Paris in recent years that are definitely worth a visit. And many regular restaurants in Paris also offer many vegetarian friendly options on the menu.
Especially in the east of Paris there are trendy hotspots for those who prefer veggie & vegan food.
