Today, Eater returns to Paris to focus on 12 spots that are garnering serious buzz and acclaim. As was the case the last time around, Paris-based food writer and Mandarin Oriental concierge Adrian Moore has shared his picks for the hottest dining his city currently has to offer.

These hot new Parisian restaurants, Moore writes, are "top heavy on local expat talent, new ideas in reinvented comfort food, and a pervasive no-strings-attached obsession with cult seasonal farm products and quality ingredients." And so there is a buzzy new bistro from an Australian surfer expat (Bones), a fish-and-chip shop (The Sunken Chip), and a Pigalle hotspot that is essentially a clone of an American diner (Le Dépanneur). There's also a reinvented kebab shop from a Chateaubriand vet (Grillé), and interestingly named bars that focus on Japanese whiskies and tiki drinks (Sherry Butt, Dirty Dick). Here now, the Eater Heatmap to Paris, a chronicle of the city's restaurants of the moment.



Think there are any glaring omissions? You know what to do.
