Chris StangCo-Founder & CEO
Since its inception in 2009, Stang has been the architect of The Infatuation’s editorial voice, creative vision, and marketing strategy. Today his role still encompasses all of those things, but also includes pushing the company forward into new arenas, including the creation and launch of Text Rex, EEEEEATSCON, The Infatuation’s food festival, and the company's recent acquisition of Zagat. He was nominated for a James Beard Award in 2015 for Underfinger, a review of a restaurant that doesn’t exist, and he still writes from time to time about real restaurants. Prior to taking on The Infatuation full time, Stang was the VP of Marketing at Atlantic Records, working closely with many of the label’s biggest acts including Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Skrillex, Gnarls Barkley, and Panic! At The Disco.

Where to get dinner when you forgot to plan ahead.
The best Paris restaurants, all in one place.
Famous for their buckwheat crepes from Brittany, Breizh Cafe is a perfect affordable lunch in the Marais.
You’ll find extremely high quality coffee in an extremely pleasant environment at La Fontaine de Belleville in the 10th.
Brutos in the 11th is a sort of Brazilian steakhouse without the all-you-can-eat meat option on the menu - and it's actually charming with good food.
L’Ami Jean is a lively French bistro in the 7th, and it’s on the expensive side, but the food is excellent, exciting, and worth your time.
If you want to hang with Parisians, La Cave a Michel in the 10th is a wine bar you should be going to, especially after dinner in the area.
Septime La Cave in the 11th is an excellent place to grab a bottle of natural wine, some meats, and some cheese before a meal at Septime or Clamato.
