A Mexican restaurant in the heart of St.-Germain-des-Prés. It may seem an unlikely cuisine for one of Paris’s quaintest quartiers, but young French people go absolutely crazy over it—the place is always packed. Miguel, the chef and owner, hails from Mexico and offers an impressive menu of his country’s classics. With the help of his American wife, Amy, he sources ingredients both from Mexico and from Parisian farmers’ markets for excellent quesadillas, taquitos, enchiladas, burritos, ceviche, and (yes) fajitas. With its rough stone walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, and charming location just steps from the Seine, Fajitas has the bustle of a French bistro while offering locals a spicy alternative to coq au vin and crêpes. Plus, it has a great wine list—and the city’s best margarita.
