About Paris kosher restaurants
In Paris, we can find many Jewish restaurants. Many of them are Kosher and few are Glatt Kosher.
In 2022, we have a seen a new trend for Jewish-style restaurants with an Israeli cuisine, Yiddish, Challah bread, hummous… but they are not totally kosher.
As the daughter of Joe Goldenberg, a Jewish restaurant owner, the Yiddish Cuisine & the kosher rituals have been a big part of my childhood. The Goldenbergs used to run restaurants and Kosher butcher shops everywhre in Paris 4th, 5th, 17th arrondissement, since the beginning of the 1900s. Read my full Bio here.
How to do a Shabbat dinner in Paris?
The safest options for a shabbat dinner in Paris, if you are an english-speaking traveller, are these 4 options:
1/ The Grand Synagogue of Paris organizes an event called : La Victoire du Shabbat on this link (since sept 2022)
Link : www.weezeven.com/la-victoire-du-chabat
The fees are 25 euro per person.
Address : 44 rue de la Victoire 75009 Paris.
Safest options for transport : UBER / TAXI is very safe. If you are wearing a kippah, for the subway METRO : Take line 10 which is not crowded, jewish-friendly and safe but please avoid line 13 which is busy and can be unsafe on friday night.
2/ You can pre-order food with the Shabbat Box in Paris. The food is kosher and can be delivered to your hotel or bnb appartment.
3/ You can order food with the UBER EATS + Kosher filter on the food. There are many options for the Kosher food in Paris (see my list below).

Glatt and Beit Din of Paris – Kosher Restaurants in Paris
When going to different kosher stores and restaurants in Paris, we will discover that there is a wide range of different signs that indicate different degrees of kashrut in Paris
You can find the highest level of kashrut in France in stores and restaurants that have a sign that mentions the word “Glatt”.
What is Glatt? Glatt is the Yiddish word litterally meaning “smooth“. In the kashrut, Glatt refers to the state of the lungs of animals right after they are slaughtered for consumption according to the Jewish rituals of slaughtering.
In the Jewish law, it is important that the animal is perfectly healthy at the moment of slaughter.
The lungs have to be examined and the slaughterer have to verify if they are absolutely “smooth” or Glatt : There must be no perforations, no injuries but also no scars.
By examining the lungs, you can get a good idea of the state of health if the animal.
In Paris, there are several Jewish organizations that supervise the ritual slaughtering.
When in a restaurant you see permit with the name Loubabitch, Lahemadrin or Rav Rottenberg, you can be sure they all respect the rules of Glatt kosher slaughtering and checking of the lungs.
1 – Restaurant Fumé
GLATT KOSHER – MEAT
Addresse : 10 Rue Berryer, 75008 Paris, located in a beautiful central arrondissement of Paris
To be honest, I never went there myself to restaurant Fumé but I’ve got good feedback from my clients who tried it.
I called the restaurant’s owner and he confirmed being Glatt kosher.
Chef Ruben Sarfati interpreted in his own way of a friendly place where you can eat delicious & healthy Glatt kosher meat, with a diversied side salad as well as good French Kosher wine.
Near the Arc de Triomphe, the restaurant is well-located, in a fancy neighboorhood of the 8th arrondissement of Paris.
The staff speaks english. They are friendly and welcoming.
I will search for more restaurants and I will need to verify them and go visit them. If you own or you visited a glatt kosher restaurant in Paris, please send me an email : email@example.com

4 – Restaurant Bassar
Glatt – Halak Beit Yossef – MEAT
Address: 122 Av. de Villiers, 75017 Paris
Kosher restaurant under the supervision of Beth Din of Paris Halak Beth Yosseph.

Kosher in le Marais next to the Art Nouveau Synagogue : Agoudas Hakehilos
Address : 8, rue Pavée 75004 Paris
This is a Pitzman Family owned restaurant, a Jewish tunisian family, who lived in Paris for a very long time now.
The style is a bit everything : french, casual, with falefels, tunisian pizza, with tuna, spicy, pasta, grattins, crepes, soups, even the fish of the day…
6 – L’As du Fallafel
Kosher – Beit Din of Paris + in le Marais next to the jewish tour of Paris
This restaurant is the reason why you see a long waiting line in Rue des Rosier.
Many celebrities went to l’As de Falafel: The owner is proud to showcase many pictures of movie stars on the restaurant façade.
It has the advantage of making his own recipe of falafels, inside a delicious home-made bread with tasty tahina and fried eggplant.
Eventhough I am not a big fan of falafels in general, this restaurant is a must in le Marais.
The only thing wrong is that you have to wait in line for about 30 minute because it is very famous and very busy during lunch.
But, thanks to the owner Yomi Peretz, we can skip the line with me or with my team of Jewish tour guides.
Address : 32-34, rue des Rosiers – 75004 Paris
TEL : 0148876360
7 – Restaurant Dhouib
Kosher – Sephardic , Tunisian style – Meat
I tried this restaurant many times with my family. We loved it.
The North-African food is special: expect spicey meals, lots of sauces, big couscous, sugary and heavy deserts…
The food colors can be intimidating at first (Vivid Red, Dark Green) – example : the Melokhia has a dark green color but it is really delicious.
With Dhouib, you can also pre-order for shabbat.
Address : 11 Bis Rue Geoffroy-Marie, Paris, France

3 kosher bakeries in Paris :

Great service, large service of pastries, sandwiches, quiches, bagels and great coffee place.

I take it for breakfast as it is in front of my office in Rue des rosiers, but there is no place to sit
This is a bakery that you can not miss in Rue des Rosiers.
The best preserved historical Jewish bakery in my opinion as the owners, originally from Morocco, kept the french ornaments inside, like the in the 19th century.
Address : 18, rue des Rosiers 75004 Paris
3- XXV – Kosher Bakery
This is an excellent Kosher Tea House a bit far from le Marais but a good place to go and to sit next to Champs elysées

The restaurants in Paris with Jewish-style food
Jewish but Not Kosher
In 2018, Paris is having a lot of new jewish style and Israeli restaurants opening. this new trend is a good image of tolerance for Paris mix of communities, but most of all : their food is so good , that Parisian Jewish Restaurant are so booked and filled of people ! let me give my favorite ones that I tried myself :
Jewish but Not Kosher
My favorite spot for a quick bite
And what about a modern style falafel? This new place opened by an Israeli chef from Tel Aviv is the new hop spot in the Marais. The concept is a miznon (a “buffet”in French) of stuffed pitas, in the French style. Choose between a pita with steak and egg, ratatouille or the famous boeuf bourguignon! what not to love !
Attention points : this restaurant is always full and loud music, young jewish people go there but it is full of joy and their food is so delicious!
Address : 22 rue des Ecouffes, 75004
2 – Maison David
Jewish charcuteries but not Kosher
Maison David was held by Joseph Goldenberg in the 50s and now passed to Michael Khalifa who is a passionate local butcher.
Every time I visit this artisan in Rue des Ecouffes, he explains everything about his art of making himself these delicious Jewish Charcuteries.
These is not Kosher maybe but they are very delicious!
In this historical delicatessen, you will discover the incredible Ashkenazim charcuteries. The artisan learned in a French school how to make charcuteries, without pork.
Michael makes pastrami, veal, beef, turkey breast, Israel foie gras, chicken liver, for 5 stars hotels of Paris but also for private clients, for a party or a barmitzvah.
6, rue des Ecouffes 75004
3 – Balagan
Israeli but Not Kosher
The name is funny, and still, the restaurant is fancy and stylish, and you need to book 01 40 20 72 14 , so it is no Balaghan after all :=)
To be honest, I did not go there yet , but everyone in Paris is booking and the restaurant is always full!
The food must be good then !
Address: 9 Rue d’Alger, 75001 Paris
4 – Florence Kahn
Jewish bakery from east europe – Delicious !
I buy their “Croquants Aux Amendes” on every shabbat!
These delicious small cakes are amazing for breakfast.
All my friends including me, love this little family held bakery where you can enjoy their tasty Pastrami Sandwich.
Many locals come on Sunday to the Marais, and shop at Florence Kahn the best of Yiddish specialties.
Tzatziki, hummus, eggplant caviar, tarama, cumin bread, grape halah…
Enkoy the Beigels, the Pastrami Sandwich, along with some Ashkenazi desert, cheese cakes, and a drink to enjoy on the terrace.
I always buy the croquants : sort of Tunisian biscuits that you can eat in the morning with your coffee.
They very very delicious and I am addicted to it.
24 Rue des Ecouffes, 75004 Paris
4 – Tavline
Israeli and Morrocan fusion cuisine but Not Kosher
This is a new Jewish Restaurant in le Marais: the cuisine is delicious. A mix of Moroccan and Israeli
I tried this restaurant with my mother Léontine, (tour guide in Jerusalem) and we aggreed that it is the best hummus in Paris!
We also tried the shakshouka and the Fish balls and, of course, all the starters , like in Israel : eggplant, hummus, roasted Cauliflower … miam miam !
25 Rue du Roi de Sicile, 75004 Paris
I picked a list of my favorite Top 5 Jewish Sites in Paris that you must see
See the Museum of Jewish Art and History:
This museum is housed in a 17th century private mansion, and it displays a lot of documents, pictures and art related to the life and history of the Jews in Europe and France through the centuries.
See Synagogue of Agoudas Hakehilos Synagogue in Rue Pavée
This beautiful synagogue, registered as one of the historical monument in Paris, was built by the famous French architect Hector Guimard, who has built the metro entrances in Paris.
Bookstore and Jewish Art Gallery
In the Rue des Rosiers, you will find The bookstore of the Temple ( 52, Rue des Rosiers, Librairie du Temple ) which is also an Art Gallery, as well as a souvenir shop.
Shoal Memorial Monument Wall near by the Jewish Tour of Paris
The wall of the names at the Holocaust Memorial was inaugurated in 2005. This amazing monument is very moving, but it is also one of the best ways to remember the 76 000 Jews deported from France during WWII.
Note for Restaurants: Thank you for all your messages, but for now I do not accept sponsorships. I want to stay independant.
