About Wendy Lyn
Wendy Lyn is a straight-talking Southern food writer known as the “Insider’s Insider” in the international food + drink industry from having worked as a PR & Restaurant Consultant to the some of the world’s biggest Chefs & Winemakers and launching the first US Michelin Guide.
Today, this Professional Eater is a tv/film producer, podcaster and journalist traveling 200+ days a year on epic eating trips with industry friends in search of the people & places influencing the way we eat + drink today. Follow the adventures on Instagram, or join her on a private food + wine tour in her favourite city Paris, France.
There is a reason Wendy’s private experiences sell out months in advance. She’s been featured in The New York Times | The Wall St Journal | NBC TODAY | Travel + Leisure | Food & Wine Magazine | The Travel Channel with Andrew Zimmern + Anthony Bourdain
On a first name basis with every ‘it’ chef in Paris.” – Travel + Leisure Magazine
“Wendy’s superpower is access. She is your best industry friend who wants you to meet everyone there is to know & shows you the fast track to what’s happening on the food scene in Paris.”
Created just for you: These are not canned cliché “tours”, no two are the same. Each one is as individual as you are. I want to get you in on a deeper level of what is happening on the food & drink scene – far more than touring food shops can show you. I want you to eat, drink and meet people. During sign up, I ask you specific questions so I can make this all about what you want to learn/eat/drink/do. Don’t wait to save your date. These sell out 4-6 weeks in advance.
Reserve the Taste of Paris if you want a combination of grazing through craft cocktail & natural wine bars PLUS lunch/or/dinner made by up and coming chefs.
Reserve the natural wine & cocktail bar crawl: If you are interested in socializing, eating and drinking in as many locations as possible – with a young, hip crowd with a rock & roll Bourdain attitude, sharing beautiful small plates in craft cocktail & natural wine bars.

“We were excited to book our trip to Paris, but actually being there with Wendy Lyn was surreal. She made the people and places we’d read about so tangible. One minute we were grazing through the best charcuterie and cheese shops in her neighborhood, the next minute we were eating a late lunch at a popular wine bar with other chefs on their day off. She shared her “family” with us. Getting to know the best of Paris on a personal level went from dream to a reality. Get in touch with Wendy, I am certain it will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. I’m still in Paris with Wendy, at least in my head.”– Chris S.
Eat & Drink Through Sharing Plate Cocktail + Natural Wine Bars:Custom 4-hour Tour: Sharing Plate Natural Wine & Cocktail Bars - Rock n' Roll Crowd & Vibes
Paris, France is one of the greatest restaurant cities in the world – but the new “new” is actually eating in craft cocktail + natural wine bars. Don’t mistake this for only liquid fun…there is delicious food!
“We learned more on a night out on the town with Wendy than we could have ever learned on our own. Not only was every place tailor-made just for us – she brought every bite, sip, place and person to life for us. From the shared face time with chefs, bartenders and local regulars to all the delicious food and drinks, we are so grateful for her pushing us outside our comfort zone to eat and drink things we never would have tried. It was a blast!” – Ashton
The places I take you are on the cutting edge of what’s happening today from a new generation of chefs, restaurateurs, bartenders, and other entrepreneurs in the industry who are shaping a brand new generation of Paris. They are equally as interested in delicious food as they are with craft cocktails and wine. No two experiences are ever the same, these are both planned in advance AND spontaneous as I get to know you – really, created just for you.
Rock & Roll Vibe + Crowd: If drinking with a young, hip crowd with loud music, standing shoulder-to-shoulder in crowded bars with a rock & roll Bourdain attitude, sharing small plates made by up and coming chefs and sharing bottles of natural wine & cocktails is your thing – don’t wait to save your date. These sell out 4-6 weeks in advance.
