Paris is one of the few cities in the world that is equally famous for its cuisine and its literary tradition. Some of the greatest writers in history have called the city home, and have made themselves at home in its restaurants and cafés, too. Today, it’s easy to lament the commercialization of Paris’s former bohemian, intellectual neighborhoods, like Saint-Germain-des-Prés. But though you can’t travel back in time to the heyday of literary Paris, you can still visit the restaurants, cafés, and bars where many great writers wined and dined, many of which have remained essentially unchanged. From Le Procope, where Voltaire guzzled 40 cups of coffee a day, to Bar Hemingway at the Ritz, named for the man who liberated it from the Nazis, here are 10 great restaurants and bars in Paris with a literary history.
