A taste of the old country: Fish and chips
Burgers might be on the menu at plenty of US diners in Paris, but typical British fish & chips adored by everyone from top model Georgia May Jagger to the Queen (probably) are harder to find. Breaded, fried fish and thick-cut fries are only available at a handful of Anglo-inspired Parisian eateries - here are three of our favourites:
The chic restaurant: Le Bristol
This Michelin-starred Parisian palace serves up chic chips which are light to boot. An exquisite treat for expats and in-the-know Parisians alike.
114 Faubourg at the Bristol, 112 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, 75008 Paris.
The neo-bistro: La Maison-Mère
Sundays only, all rise for La Maison Mère's fish & chips du chef. God save fish & chips, definitely.
La Maison Mère, 4 rue de Navarin, 75009 Paris.
British basics: Marks & Spencer
Marks & Spencer made a comeback to the French capital in late 2011 with a new store on the Champs-Elysées and has since opened a second in Paris suburb Levallois Perret. Scones, pies, Cheddar cheese, muffins, hot cross buns, chicken tikka wraps, marmalade and British sausages make this a regular stop for home comforts for Brits about town as well as Anglophile Frenchies. Marks & Spencer, 100 Avenue des Champs-Elysées, 75008 Paris. www.marksandspencer.frAnother to try: l'Epicerie Anglaise, where Baxter's chutney, Branston pickle and plenty of Heinz varieties are on offer.
Tasty treats: Bread and Roses
Restaurant? Food-store? Bakery? Tea room? Bread and Roses is all of these things, offering healthy, light breakfasts, delicious lunches like goat's cheese and zucchini tart and charming English teatime selections. We love the sticky toffee pudding, carrot cake and muffins, washed down with a citrus, mint and acacia honey iced tea. Bread and Roses, 25 rue Boissy d'Anglas, 75008 & 62 rue Madame 75006 Paris.
Well-furnished: The Conran Shop
Sir Terence Conran's shop is a must for contemporary style, designer furniture, lighting, fabrics, crockery, high-tech gadgets and books. Mix and match the impeccable taste of one of Britain's greatest designers with antique treasures from the French capital's many flea markets and vintage stores for a decorative entente amicale. The Conran Shop, 117 rue du Bac 75007 Paris. www.conranshop.fr
Plenty of bottle: Willi's Wine Bar
Brit Mark Williamson welcomes regulars to Willi's Wine Bar around well-laid tables or the long oak wood bar, for a market-fresh menu of carefully chosen and well-sourced dishes, washed down with a bottle from the wine menu. A good all-rounder.
