Looking for a hearty boeuf bourguignon in Paris? Here are the Parisian restaurants where you can enjoy this pillar of French cuisine!

The flagship dish of French cuisine, boeuf bourguignon originated in Burgundy and is one of France's favorite dishes. Originally known as "estouffade de bœuf", this dish was a favorite of peasants and farmers on feast days. They used the red wine produced in the region to marinate and cook the beef, making it more tender and flavorful. It was then served with toasted bread rubbed with garlic.

Over the centuries, the recipe for boeuf bourguignon has evolved and been adapted by numerous chefs. In France, there are many versions of the boeuf bourguignon recipe, each with its own variations and ingredients. For example, some recipes include onions, carrots, mushrooms and smoked bacon, while others use spices such as thyme, bay leaves and rosemary. Today, the reputation of boeuf bourguignon is well established, and has even crossed borders and oceans!

Beef bourguignon is particularly appreciated in France for its unique taste and tender texture, and is best enjoyed, of course, with a glass of fine red Burgundy wine! A warm and friendly dish par excellence, boeuf bourguignon can be enjoyed with the family, at home, or in a restaurant. And that's just as well, because many traditional French restaurants in Paris offer locals and tourists alike the chance to savor this pillar of French gastronomy.
