2. Paris New York
Recently voted the best burger in Paris, what you'll find at Paris New York (PNY) is a laid-back, modern vibe with a serious menu of burgers. The outside, with its old cinema sign and bulb lights, and vintage-inspired inside, is often packed with locals from the 10th arrondissement. Order the 'Classica America' burger, with Flame-broiled beef from Le Ponclet, the Brittany butcher, and aged cheddar accompanied by hand-cut fries and a milkshake. One meal at PNY and you'll be questioning if you're in Paris or New York.
