The traditional French cuisine is usually known with meat products from duck to snails. Still, there are vegetarian options almost in every restaurant and bistro in Paris and the portion of vegetarian dishes in the menus are even growing. The geographical diversity of France allows French cooks to use many beans, herbs, vegetables and olives.
On the other hand, there are stylish and modern cantinas, conventional cafés showing up around the famous districts of Paris. The concept of an exclusively vegetarian kitchen has become more visible in Paris as well. And honestly, even non-vegetarians enjoy these plates and places too. So they deserve to be seen as quite good gastronomical points of the city.
