What People are Saying About This

"Michelin has seen competitors come and go, but none have built the reputation of Gilles Pudlowski, whose Pudlo Paris guide has been published by Little Bookroom in English for the first time." —Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

"Pudlo used to be a secret among non-Francophones; using it meant you were curious and open and wanted to be surrounded by Parisians, not tourists. Now in English, it just might change the way you experience, and perceive, this food-obsessed city." —Wine Spectator

"If you're going to eat in Paris, this is the guide you will want." —The Observer (UK)

"Pudlo Paris, an annual guide by French food critic Gilles Pudlowski, is probably the most comprehensive food guide to Paris." —Gourmet Magazine's Choptalk on Epicurious

“For many Parisians, especially the younger, active types who nightly crowd into the city’s brasseries and bistros, Le Pudlo is the restaurant guide…The Pudlo books cater to readers who want to know the newest places as soon as possible. Moreover, neighborhood by neighorhood, Pudlo features the best butchers, bakers, cheese makers and tea rooms.” —The New York Times (Frank J. Prial, review of the French edition)

"For the first time, the secret weapon of Paris gastronomes will be available in English...Written by Gilles Pudlowski, the restaurant critic for Le Point...It's the combination of zeal and knowledge...that make the guide so indispensable." —TRIO
