🎙️ Lindsey Tramuta: The best restaurants on the right bank of Paris (plus elephant soup)

This week we’re joined in the studio by Paris guru Lindsey Tramuta – the woman behind The New Paris and the Lost in Cheeseland blog.

She recommends the top restaurant experiences in every arrondissement of the right bank of Paris. Plus we talk about everything from her new podcast to Scarlett Johansson’s popcorn shop in Paris.

Afterwards, we have Corey Frye from A French Frye in Paris sharing a story about when the Paris food scene featured elephant soup.

Listen here, and see the restaurants Lindsey chose below.
