And we thought there were too many dining options in Charlottesville! Turns out, there are even more in Paris, with over 5,000 restaurants currently in operation. Locally, our taste of the City of Love doesn’t come better than at l’étoile, where owner Mark Gresge serves up la cuisine Française with a Southern twist. At Petit Pois, get a tuna niçoise with a view. The tiny restaurant is located at Central Place on the Downtown Mall—perfect for people watching.
