Le Bistrot Napolitain

© Alys Tomlinson / Time Out
Champs Élysées and western Paris

This chic Italian bistro is as far from a tourist joint as it is possible to be. On weekday lunchtimes it is full of suave Italianate businessmen. Generosity defines the food - not just big plates, but lashings of the ingredients that others skimp on, such as the slices of tangy parmesan piled high over rocket on the tender beef carpaccio. The pizzas are very good: the Enzo comes with milky, almost raw mozzarella di bufala and tasty tomatoes. For pasta you can choose between dried and fresh, with variations such as fresh saffron tagliatelle.
