 Wells App

Going to Paris? Don't leave home without Patricia Wells!


We have just returned from Paris where we had the inside scoop on the best restaurants, food shops, wine bars and all things gastronomic.  We were guided by Patricia Wells' fabulous new app for the iPhone, The Food Lovers' Guide to Paris.  It's full of great tips, reviews, maps and all the info you need to navigate the Paris food scene like a pro.

Here's what Patricia says about the app:

"I am very excited to announce that THE FOOD LOVER’S GUIDE TO PARIS is back! All new content in an all new format -- as an app for the iPhone, also compatible with the iPad and iTouch. April 17 is the target date to begin sales on the iTunes App Store!

Over the past 15 months I have been visiting, re-visiting, and testing the best of culinary Paris, and the result is a user-friendly app that includes more than 350 favorite addresses, from restaurants, cafés, and wine bars, to the best in cheese shops, bakeries, pastry shops, chocolate shops, markets and specialty shops. Features include color-coded pins and GPS locations to guide you to the best spots nearby as you wander the city. You can browse by category or neighborhood, or if you are just looking for a place for a quick late-night bite, you find it quickly. You will be able to call establishments, link to their web sites, and even find directions. Color photos are included for most destinations. The app also features my popular A-Z glossary of French culinary terms. For more information, visit www.foodloverparis.com and on Itunes (click here to download now!). Note that you can also gift the app, tell a friend, share on Twitter and Facebook. And a 5-star rating would be most welcome!"
