I am delighted to announce that the 2nd edition of HUNGRY FOR PARIS was published by Random House on April 15, 2014.

A substantial number of restaurants have left the book and many wonderful new addresses have taken their place, so that the new edition contains reviews of the 109 restaurants in Paris where I think you'll eat best. Please visit my Amazon store on this site to purchase the new edition of HUNGRY FOR PARIS.


 “A wonderful guide to eating in Paris”—Alice Waters

"Not since Patricia Wells’s classic Food Lover’s Guide to Paris has a guidebook given readers such a mouthwatering tour of the City of Lights."

--Publisher's Weekly 


Lobrano, GOURMET magazine's European correspondent from 1999 until its recent closing, has written for almost every major food and travel magazine since he became an American in Paris in 1986.

Here he shares his personal selection of the city's 109 best restaurants, each of which is portrayed in savvy, fun, lively descriptions that are not only indispensable for finding a superb meal but a pleasure to read.

Lobrano reveals the hottest young chefs, the coziest bistros, the best buys--including those haute cuisine restaurants that are really worth the money--and the secret places Parisians love most, together with information on the most delicious dishes, ambience, clientele, and history of each restaurant. A series of delightful essays cover various aspects of dining in Paris, including "Table for One" (how to eat alone), "The Four Seasons" (the best seasonal eating in Paris), and "Eating the Unspeakable"(learning to eat what you don't think you like). All restaurants are keyed to helpful maps, and the book is generously illustrated with beautiful photographs by former Life magazine photographer Bob Peterson.
