  3. Pizza Chic


When its a French affair, even something like pizza becomes Boho chic. In Paris's Saint-Germain-Des-Prés neighborhood you will stumble across a black door on the corner of Rue de Mézières and Rue Cassette with a bold neon sign declaring 'Pizza Chic', although there's a good chance you've already heard about this place. Sharp and upscale, this pizza place is what one would describe as New York hipster meets Parisian haute-glam. Crisp white tablecloths, silver cutlery and elegant wine setups, that's how owner Julien Cohen imagined this pizzeria. The fine-dine setting with its open kitchen and wood oven is actually quite charming if not intimidating for first-time visitors. Once you're past admiring (or gawking at) the decor, you will notice the concise menu which is laid out with starters, mains and desserts. Go for the Carciofi, smattered with artichokes, arugula and shredded aged parmesan, this star stands out as a favorite among its thin-crust counterparts. Vegetarians must try the crudaiola, loaded with fresh from the garden tomatoes, arugula and fresh mozzarella. And the handpicked selection of wines goes perfectly with the pizzas.
