The Paris Hit List, Summer 2022 Edition: Racines, Superfrais, Folderol, and More


Summer in Paris can run swampy-hot one day, damp and cool the next. That means, if you’re putting together your dining itinerary for your grand return to the French capital this season, you’ll want to plan for all possibilities.

We’ve got you covered: there’s the small plates and affordable wines at the Seine-side hangout Maison Maison for the best of days; the intimate dining room of Racines in the Passage des Panoramas for chillier evenings; and artisanal ice creams and natural wines at Folderol which is, frankly, appropriate for any and all weather conditions. These and many others are ready for your fun Parisian summer. Here’s are Paris’s hottest restaurants for summer 2022.
