Which restaurant for dinner for two?
For a first date
The atmosphere at Bonhomie is warm and relaxed. Sit at the bar to order a glass of wine and some tapas (Iberico ham, sweet potatoes) so that you can have a proper chat. This 200m2 space offers great music rather than awkward silences. 22, rue d’Enghein, Paris 10th.
To go all night
Already well-established at the heart of Paris’s 9th arrondissement, Hôtel Amour (8, rue de Navarrin) now has a recently created baby brother Hôtel Grand Amour (18, rue de la Fidélité, Paris 10th). If things at the table are getting into full swing, you can keep the night going upstairs in one of our typical Parisian apartment rooms with their bohemian decor.
For a proposal
Have an engagement to arrange? Head to Bijouterie for its arty setting and original fusion menu (lemon crab meat bao on coral in a shellfish jus). And as an added bonus, the name of the restaurant offers your intended a clue… 16, rue Hyppolite Flandrin, Lyon 1st
For an extra-marital flirt
‘To live happily, live hidden’ would be the perfect mantra to sum up the concept of the CanCan speakeasy in Bordeaux. You enter via a telephone box, into a bar where you can enjoy a glass of wine and listen to funk and jazz. 7, rue du Cerf Volant, Bordeaux.
For a break up
To part good friends, meet up at Fantôme. Order a house pizza before fighting it out over table football or arcade games. Finally, leave the ghost of your ex behind by heading down to the basement to dance and meet some new people. And we come full circle! 36, rue de Paradis, Paris 10th
