Never been, but I would recommend you let me stow away with you…after I find a way to London, of course! 😉

If you like chocolate, stop by La Chocolaterie de Jacques Genin. We love their chocolate and they have a mini cafe for you to sit-down and enjoy. While we were in Paris, a local took us to Basserie Bofinger near Bastille area, it was good (reservation is recommended). If you like seafood, we love the Bar a Huitres seafood platter. There is also a restaurant by the river with the view of Eifel tower called La Plage, the food was good as well, but that might be a little touristy. If you want to do fine dining, Ledoyen is excellent (but it might break the bank).

The BEST crepes in Paris are from a little shop with a yellow overhang to the left of Notre Dame (when facing it). There is also an amazing souvenier shop near there as well with gorgeous scarves. I always hit up both every time.

Have fun!!!

I just say wander the streets and get lost!  I love all the little cafes and shops that are just tucked away. Part of the Pasis experience is sitting in a cafe with a cup of coffee and people watching.  And you’re never really ever lost lost with the metro.  Have fun!

I really, REALLY enjoyed dinner at L’Appart.  It’s just off Champs-Elysees and is just off the beaten path and full of actual Parisians, not just tourists.  It’s absolutely gorgeous inside and the food was insane.  So delicious.

Go there!


ETA: if you like seafood and have a few bucks to spare, I also recommend Le Congres.  Amazing seafood.  I ordered the ‘baked crawfish’ and this is what came out (and yes that’s a regular size dinner plate)

I guess since you’re in Paris you should try macarons although I personally hated them. Blegh.

Oh crepes….

You should go to Angelina’s for hot chocolate. It is so decadent and delicious! It was recommended to me when I went to visit and after that I was reading an interview my Salma Hayek and she recommended it! It’s delish!
