Last year, wife and I made our maiden trip to Paris. Paris being at the end of a Barca-San Se-Rome-Florence 2 week route, we made a mistake of not planning enough – and didn’t get to eat as much as we would have liked to. Still, the few places we ate at – Le Grand Plan, Huiterie Regis, Chez la Ville (this amazing squid omelet dish) – left such a huge impression that we have been yearning to return to Paris since the day we left.
4 days from now, we will be back with vengeance. The plan so far:
Day 1 – mon (arrive Paris afternoon)
Grab a croissant fr Pain de Sucre
Snack+wine - Verjus wine Bar
Dinner - Frenchie
Early lunch – Pierre Sang
Late afternoon snack – Phillipe Gosselin baguette and/or Un Dimanche (choux pistache fruits rouge)
Dinner - Spring
Breakfast Snack Des Gateux des Pain
Lunch - Chez L’ami Jean
Light dinner + drinks - Le Mary Celeste
Day 4 - Burgundy
Wine tour with lunch at Le Cellier Volnaysien
Dinner - Ma Cuisine
Day 5 – Burgundy-Paris
Lunch - Aupres du Clocher
Dinner - Premices (thank you JT)
Croissant fr either Boulangerie Pichard or Pierre Herme
Lunch – Hugo Desnoyer (really looking forward to this)
Dinner - La Cigale de la Cantine (not sure if we are going to be too full fr Hugo)
Visit Marche Bio Raspail
Snacks – choc millie fielle and tart citron fr Jacque Genin
Dinner - Lazare
Day 8 (leaving evening)
Lunch – Le Cinq
Trying to squeeze everything in is quite impossible on our stomachs – did also consider Josephine Dumonet, 6th Paul Bert and few others but c’est la vie.
- I am big fan of foie, finding it hard to keep Aud Sud Ouest off the list but hoping the places above would have a dish or two to satisfy the craving .. good decision?
- Steak tartare: So far, the best I had was a French restaurant in Malaysia (of all places), wonderful texture and perfect temperature and seasoning – experienced a very poor version at a random bar near Pigalle (my fault – should not have ordered) .. any recs of places to consider for tartare?
Thank you to all contributors on this board !! You guys really fuelled our greedy imaginations to make this trip back!
