Think you can't experience French cuisine in Paris as a vegan? Fear not! Here are four restaurants in Paris that showcase French cuisine but made vegan!
1. Le Potager du Marais
Le Potager du Marais is a French country-style restaurant that has been adapting traditional French cuisine to be vegan. The restaurant is considered a bridge between two cultures - it tries to combine the best of both. The ingredients are 100% vegan and freshly-prepared.The signature dishes of the restaurant are the amazing 'boeuf Bourguignon', the French-style onion soup and ending with creme brulee for dessert.
The restaurant is located at 24 rue Rambuteau, 75003 Paris France. Since Le Potager du Marais is always crowded, it is recommended that you book the table before you turn up. We don’t want you to be disappointed!

4. Potager de Charlotte
The story of Potager de Charlotte starts with the two brothers of the Valentin family. From the beginning, they expressed their desire to restore the image of plant-based cuisine. People coming to the restaurant have not only the chance to try a new epicurean and gourmet approach to vegan food, but also receive a generous and warm-hearted service.
“This is a restaurant not to be missed. The presentation of each dish was only outdone by its flavor.” – said a customer
The restaurant is near Cadet metro station, also walkable from Gare du Nord. Make sure to note down the address and go by to try the famous Chocolate Baked Pear - each bite was fruity, chocolatey and crunchy; or the Cacao Cream with avocado twist.
So, are there enough reasons for you to visit Paris? It just so happens we have just a couple of spots left for our two trips to Paris and Alsace in September and December.
