Take me to my Time Out city

Local restaurants, world class dining • Europe

Time Out’s tough-to-please food editors from around the world pick their favourite local restaurant for 2014

Our favourite local restaurants: David Toutain in Paris


Some of these local restaurants are deceptively casual; there’s not a lot in the way of uniform-clad waiters and intricately folded napkins at our Europe editors’ dining picks for 2014. Instead, there’s a lively engagement with local ingredients and flavours; chefs seem to be vying to best express the spirit of their producers’ environment. You might sip chilled watermelon soup with basil in the Portuguese mountains, or carve into a dish of ox tongue in London’s Smithfield (with bars to match) – chances are, the kitchen knows every step that the ingredients have taken, from farm to table.
