a girl’s gotta eat
bonjour guys! i hope you’re having a good weekend and enjoying the summer days. i’m leaving monday and putting together itineraries and getting the details set for the group. it occurred to me that i keep writing the same things over and over every year and get asked for all sorts of lists, one being recommendations for cafes and restaurants in paris. i try not to go to a place twice with so many choices but these are actually some of my faves that i do seem to gravitate toward. i figure the blog is as good a place as any to start keeping track, and this way you can enjoy them too. some of them have super cute websites so dig in and bon apetitit!
you can’t make a reservation but if you get here early you’ll get a seat, otherwise there will be a line. the food is amazing! great photos here
le square trusseau
l’avenue restaurant, one of the costes brothers’ fabulous restos
le procope has been around since the 1600s. it could be the oldest restaurant in paris and is a walk back in time. photo from here
marly cafe in the louvre, photo from here
le dame brune, casual but uber fun crowd and owners, oh and fantastic food!
le pin up
chez janou, it’s always packed and kind of tucked away but worth the visit. make a reservation.
ps if you have a fave, let me know and i’ll add to this list!
