Paris can be a tough place for a vegetarian, what with all the force-fed duck livers and tartar steaks on restaurant menus. But while it is hard here for a vegetarian, there is hope.

Scattered throughout the city are several vegetarian restaurants worth checking out. Our favorites:

1. Le Grenier de Notre Dame is located just steps from the Notre Dame Cathedral. Le Grenier offers tofu ravioli and fresh vegetable juices. 18, rue de la Bûcherie. Tel: +33 1 43 29 98 29.

2. Le Petite Legumes is located in the 5th arrondissment. It serves up tofu burgers in a quirky, warm setting. 36, Rue des Boulangers. Tel: +33 1 40 46 06 85.

3. Our top choice is the Piccolo Teatro in the heart of the Marais, a resto whose organic red wines and palette-pleasing tasting menu caters to vegans, romantics, and Cheapos alike. 6, rue des Ecouffes. Tel: +33 1 42 72 17 79.
