Gabe Stulman runs six restaurants around New York's West Village, including Joseph Leonard, Fedora and Perla—so it's no surprise that his Paris picks remind him of home.
Recently, I was lucky enough to spend three weeks in Paris. This was not my first time in the city, but I’d never had the chance to experience the city more like a local than a fleeting tourist. We set up camp in an apartment in the 6th Arrondissement (or Saint-Germain-des-Prés),which feels to me like the Parisian equivalent of the West Village. Not only is it a gorgeous neighborhood, the blocks are packed with antique bookstores, indie clothing stores and, of course, a smattering of restaurants and bars. Here are some of my favorite stops in the neighborhood and beyond.
