Restaurants sure to cure your 'gueule de bois'.

Whether we're drinking with fellow wine lovers or having a night out at one of Paris's new and exciting bars or speakeasies, it's fair to say that drinking is part of being a student in Paris. Luckily for us, finding a place to prendre un verre is quite easy - a quick Google search for the "best bars in Paris" provides you with over 68 million different options. As we all know, drinking often leads to the dreaded hangover. There are many remedies and so-called 'cures', but my personal favorite is to eat a good meal. That said, here are the best places to grab a bite to eat after getting pompette (tipsy), or maybe even totally déchiré (drunk). 

Breakfast in America

What's great about Breakfast in America is that it provides comfort (something we all need while we have a hangover) in two different forms. The first bit of comfort manifests in its food, serving up the expected staples of American diner eating. Whether you're craving a cheeseburger with fries or you want to go to town on a stack of fluffy pancakes, BIA's menu has got you covered. The second form of comfort, especially for AUP students, manifests in the environment. BIA doesn't just serve American diner classics but looks like your standard "down home diner", which can be especially comforting not just for those trying to fend off a headache, but for those who miss home a little bit. Even better, BIA has three different locations in Paris, so you won't have to travel too far (or struggle too much) before plopping down into one of their booths.

Breakfast in America 1 - Address: 17 rue des Ecoles 75005 Paris, France; Métro: Cardinal LeMoine or Jussieu.

Breakfast in America 2 Address: 4 rue Malher 75004 Paris, France; Métro: St Paul.

Breakfast in America 3 - Address: 41 rue des Jeûneurs 75002 Paris, France; Métro: Grands Boulevards or Bourse.

Hours: Open every day from 8:30 am to 11 pm.

Chez Casimir

This may be hard to believe, but Chez Casimir's has the best food I've ever eaten in Paris, full stop. I could go on for hours about the meal I had there just last weekend, but since you're probably reading this to cure your current hangover, I'm just going to talk about Casimir's epic brunch. While it is a bit on the pricier side, you definitely get a good bang for your buck. If you go on a Sunday, you can enjoy their Traou Mad ('good things' in Breton) brunch for €28. This gives you full access to their cold appetizer buffet, which features delicious bits such as lentil and octopus salad, quinoa tabouleh, and a cheese and spring vegetable quiche. On top of that, you get to enjoy one of their warm dishes (I had the herb omelet which was to die for). After your entrée, you have an entire dessert buffet at your disposal; which will definitely satisfy your alcohol munchies. The atmosphere of the restaurant is also great and wonderfully intimate, making it the perfect place to alleviate that gueule de bois with your meilleurs amis.

Address: 6 Rue de Belzunce 75010 Paris, France; Métro: Gare du Nord.
Hours: Open every day from noon to 3 pm and from 7 pm to 11:30 pm.

Bob's Kitchen

There are many different reasons and symptoms that make hangovers almost unbearable, but most of the time we simply want to feel like a healthy human again. Bob's Juice is great for everyone who wants a little health kick, most obviously because they're known for their selection of healthy, fresh-pressed juices and rich smoothies, which help ease dehydration and provide (much needed) nutrients. If you're in the mood for something with more substance, fear not. Bob's Kitchen also has a great selection of addictive and organic dishes for you to chose from. 

Address: 74 Rue des Gravilliers, 75003 Paris; Métro: Arts et Métiers.
Hours: Open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 3 pm; Saturdays and Sundays from 8 am to 4 pm.
