It can be hard to find a relaxed restaurant that offers a good range of comfort food in Paris’ 1st arrondissement, which is otherwise crammed with five-star hotels or high-end patisseries. Ferdi, which opened in 2004 and is owned by Alicia and Jacques Fontanier, has always been a fashion favourite with designers and showgoers but it has reached a new height of fame since Kim Kardashian and Kayne West became regulars.
Situated just a stone’s throw away from Place Vendôme, here you will find burgers and ceviche (depending on whether you feel like a hearty meal or something light) served up in a low-key environment that includes interiors dotted with framed family photos.
Housing the Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Place Vendôme, Palais-Royal and perhaps Paris’ most famous style strip rue Saint-Honoré, the 1st arrondissement is situated principally on the Right Bank of the Seine. As one of Paris’ oldest areas it also showcases some of its most spectacular public buildings, hotels, restaurants and gardens.
