Eating in and around PSB Paris School of Business WHERE SHOULD I EAT WHEN I STUDY AT THE PSB CLUSTER CAMPUS

PSB Paris School of Business is located in the Campus Cluster Paris Innovation, sharing facilities with two other schools, a fab lab and a startup incubator. It is found right at the heart of the 13th district of Paris—also known as Paris Chinatown—a cosmopolitan, lively and dynamic district.

Let’s take a close look at the different eateries available to PSB students in and around the campus. We skipped the high-end Parisian restaurants and focused solely on fast and affordable options.

In the Campus Cluster Paris Innovation:

Cafétéria or « Cafet » : Open Monday through Friday, the cafeteria provides sandwiches, salads, cookies and beverages to PSB students. The value is good and is very convenient.

Expect to pay around 6€ for a Combo.

The Anticafé: Located at the main entrance of the campus, Anticafé is an all-you-can-eat café where you only pay for the time you have spent there. Isn’t that awesome? For only 3.75€ (student price) per hour, you can drink (barista quality coffee, tea) and eat (biscuits, cakes, cereal, salad, etc.) as much as you want. Ready-made meals and sandwiches cost extra.

This place has a really cozy atmosphere with vibrant couches, not to mention an outdoor terrace and greenhouse !

Around Campus Cluster Paris Innovation:

Asian Food: There’s an abundance of Asian restaurants around the campus. From Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Laotian, etc, expect to find a vast array of options all over the 13th district, coming in a variety of restaurant styles (all-you-can-eat buffets to take-away) and price range (low-end to high-end).

Resto U (Universitaire) : Any student, no matter where they are enrolled, can have lunch or dinner at one of the Restaurant Universitaire all over France. It is a great way to get a complete meal at a very affordable price.

The closest Resto U is located on rue Tolbiac, only a 10 minute walk from the Campus Cluster Paris Innovation. There is another one that opens only during the Spring located on a barge on the Seine river. Lovely when the sun is shining.

Make sure to bring your student ID card to enter one of the Restaurant Universitaire.

Food Trucks at Bibliothèque Nationale de France (BNF): Did you know that one of the world’s best ranked burgers is only a subway station away from the campus? On a top-10 list of best burgers in the world, published by prominent British newspaper, The Telegraph, ranked Parisian food truck, Le Camion Qui Fume (The Smoking Truck), run by Californian Kristin Frederic, at #6 for National Burger Day. It can be found every Thursday close by the BNF and Mk2 theatre, where it shares a spot with accompanying food trucks. Be prepared for a long line during peak hours… and to eat outside.

Fast-Food: McDonalds, located just in front of the Olympiades subway, is known by PSB students to be the quickest and cheapest option. Another McDonalds, as well as a Quick and Subway, can be found not too far from campus, on avenue d’Italie. There are also plenty of kebab, pizza, and pasta places all around the area offering take-away.

Healthy(ier) Take-Away Food: Prêt à manger and Exki, two large chains located close to BNF, are only a 10-minute walk (or one subway stop) away from the campus. They provide typical healthy food: soups, sandwiches, salads, as well as vegetarian/vegan food.

Yuman, located in the same area, recently opened. They offer organic and local food for eat-in or take-away. The food is fresh and healthy and also offer veggie meals.

To find a restaurant, in addition to major apps such as Yelp, Zagat, etc... you should try La fourchette which has recently been acquired by Trip Advisor. La fourchette allows you to check customer reviews, book a table and even get a discount on the bill.

You can also use the following websites:

These are only some of the options available in and around PSB. Since French people love eating so much, you’ll find a plethora of restaurants all over Paris where you can enjoy the French Art de vivre. Make sure to try local delicacies (including snails and frog legs) while you’re studying in Paris.
