Praise for Hungry for Paris

"Hungry for Paris is required reading and features [Alexander Lobrano's] favorite 109 restaurants reviewed in a fun and witty way. . . . A native of Boston, Lobrano moved to Paris in 1986 and never looked back. He served as the European correspondent for Gourmet from 1999 until it closed in 2009 (also known as the greatest job ever that will never be a job again). . . . He also updates his website frequently with restaurant reviews, all letter graded."--Food Republic

"Written with . . . flair and . . . acerbity is the new, second edition of Alexander Lobrano's Hungry for Paris, which includes rigorous reviews of what the author considers to be the city's 109 best restaurants [and] a helpful list of famous Parisian restaurants to be avoided."--The Wall Street Journal

"A wonderful guide to eating in Paris."--Alice Waters

"Nobody else has such an intimate knowledge of what is going on in the Paris food world right this minute. Happily, Alexander Lobrano has written it all down in this wonderful book."--Ruth Reichl

"Delightful . . . the sort of guide you read before you go to Paris--to get in the mood and pick up a few tips, a little style."--Los Angeles Times

"No one is 'on the ground' in Paris more than Alec Lobrano. . . . This book will certainly make you hungry for Paris. But even if you aren't in Paris, his tales of French dining will seduce you into feeling like you are here, sitting in your favorite bistro or sharing a carafe of wine with a witty friend at a neighborhood hotspot."--David Lebovitz, author of The Sweet Life in Paris

"Hungry for Paris is like a cozy bistro on a chilly day: It makes you feel welcome."--The Washington Post

"This book will make readers more than merely hungry for the culinary riches of Paris; it will make them ravenous for a dining companion with Monsieur Lobrano's particular warmth, wry charm, and refreshingly pure joie de vivre."--Julia Glass

"[Lobrano is] a wonderful man and writer who might know more about Paris restaurants than any other person I've ever met."--Elissa Altman, author of Poor Man's Feast
