L’Arpège

A pioneer in vegetarian gastronomy, three Michelin star chef Alain Passard was onto the vegetable trail a decade before the rest of Paris caught on. At his restaurant across the street from the Musée Rodin, Passard lovingly rustles up vegetables he grows in his own gardens. As well as some of the best vegetarian fare in the city, diners will also find fish, seafood and the occasional meat dish on the menu. And make sure to leave room for the chef’s trademark scrumptious apple rose tart. Book ahead.

L’Abattoir Végétal

The recently-opened Abattoir Végétal (‘vegetable slaughterhouse’) is already a local favourite. Tucked in a small street close to Montmartre, patrons have the choice of three starters, three mains and three desserts that are all 100% vegetarian food. At the weekend, there is also a hearty vegan brunch. Try the falafels and vegetable shepherd’s pie.

At this no-frills bistro in the aptly coined ‘veggietown’, a handful of streets in the 10th district, every dish here is raw, locavore, vegan, organic, gluten-free and gastronomic – and it all tastes fantastic! Try the ‘menu découverte’ with two starters, two mains and two desserts with a selection of five ‘frawmages’.
