What began as a set of notes for her friends, written by a Swedish journalist who winters in Paris, became this friendly guide to the onzième. As a regular visitor who does not, as she puts it, bring her holiday wallet, she focuses on neighborhood joints and affordability. These are the kind of places one imagines a Parisian best friend would take one for a casual meal. Entries run toward the brief, but make it clear why a place is of note: "The place consists of little more than two tables and [the owner's] rockstar status means you must sometimes fight hard to get a seat at them. When you luck out you can snack on cold cuts and antipasti and drink Camille's well-chosen wines." Side bars include dining tips from local residents, pointers on ordering in a place where no one speaks your language, and notes on grocery shopping. There are also occasional notes on lovely neighborhood parks and other elements likely to appeal to visitors. The intensity of focus almost entirely on one neighborhood means almost everyone other than a resident of the 11th will find things here that they have not previously encountered. Paperback. Color and black-and-white photos throughout.
