Josh Adler may not be the first to fall in love with wine while working with a bicycle tour company that took people through Burgundy, Loire, Provence, and Bordeaux, but he is one of the few who went on to have a very successful career in the business. Adler began as a wine buyer at Bi-Rite Market in San Francisco and moved to France to become the wine director at the acclaimed restaurant Spring in Paris. In 2012, he started his own wine import business called Paris Wine Company.

The Paris Wine company works with producers who use minimal intervention in the vineyard. Adler says, “these traditional winemaking techniques produce balanced, elegant wines that are redefining the direction of French wine.”

Having lived in Paris for several years, here is Josh Adler’s local guide to his favorite places in his own Bastille neighborhood. “These are all places within a short walk from where I live and that I go back to regularly.”

Park | Square Gardette

“The nicest park in the 11th arrondissement,” says Josh about this little city oasis with lots of greenery. “It is a square with nice big trees between Voltaire and Parmentier.”

Meat Shop | Le Garde Manger

“This is a must stop. They have incredible Alsatian specialties to heat up at home like Tourte Vigneronne, Choucroute, and frozen tarte flambée (if it tastes like the one at Trader Joe’s, it’s because they sold them the recipe!).”

Market  | Marché d'Aligre

“This is my favorite place to shop in Paris. The places with the longest lines really are the best. The outdoor market is everyday except Monday and is amazing for produce.”

Place d'Aligre, Paris 75012, France


Bakery | Maison Landemaine

“It is totally underrated. Everything is great. I especially love the Pain Forestier (dark bread with nuts and dried fruit) to serve with cheese, and the Kugelhopf as a quick (and impressive) dinner party dessert - plus you can make ridiculous ‘French toast’ the next morning if there’s any left.”

Farm-to-Table | Le Servan

“It is a beautiful glass-walled corner space with molded plaster ceilings and a friendly vibe run by Tatianna and Katia Levha, two sisters who bring some serious restaurant experience to the table, and it shows.”

Bistro | Bones

“Chef James Henry knows how to do it right - homemade bread, butter, and charcuterie get you off to a good start, and it’s lights out from there. Eat at the bar if you need a last minute dining spot, or book ahead for the restaurant.”

Creperie | West Country Girl

“Follow the pink neon arrow for great crepes served in a very chill atmosphere.” Serving savory and sweet crêpes and buckwheat galettes with impeccably sourced ingredients.

Bistro | Bistrot Paul Bert

This is a quintessential Paris bistro with classic menu items like steak frites, cochon de lait, and roast monkfish with oyster mushrooms. “Solid, satisfying bistrot food with a great wine list. A solid, reliable address that’s always worth going back to.”

Mexican Tortilla | Tortilleria Mil Amores

“Real Mexican tortillas and salsa in Paris? Yes! On saturday afternoons if you know where to look.” Look for the lone wooden door and once inside you’ll be treated to hand-made tortillas by Cancun native Erika Ungur, who also supplies Candelaria and La Mezcaleria.

Wine Bar | La Buvette
“As soon as this place opened, the neighborhood got better. Camille Fourmont brings a great vibe to her tiny wine bar and it’s a great local hang out with excellent wines by the glass and delicious simple small plates prepared behind the counter.”

Beer Bar | La Fine Mousse

One of the top places to drink international craft beer, many on tap, with a selection of over 150 different beers. “It’s the best beer bar in Paris featuring mostly French microbrews.”
