Our Honeymoon Trip to Paris in July

eating good | Jun 25, 2009 06:09 PM

Hi. We are honeymooning in Paris in early July. It is both of our first trips to Paris, and we both really love and appreciate good food. After much research, we have come up with a food itinerary. We'd be happy to get feedback on our choices.

We arrive super early and will spend the day being tourists. Our plan for lunch is L'As du Falafel. We've heard such amazing things about this little place that we are planning it as our first food stop of the trip. We plan to grab ice cream at Berthillon in the afternoon. We have dinner reservations at Ze Kitchen Galerie. We are looking forward to a fun, unique dining experience.

Tartines at Cuisine de Bar for lunch. Dinner at Josephine Chez Dumonet. We chose Chez Dumonet because we are looking forward to a solid, traditional French dining experience at a local favorite.

A romantic lunch at Le Jules Verne in the Eiffel Tower. Dinner at Le Paul Bert. For this meal, we are looking for the best steak frites in the city. We've heard that it's really good.

No lunch plans yet. We are leaving this open for any Chowhound suggestions, or the option to go back to somewhere we already ate and loved. Dinner at Le Biche au Bois.

Again, no lunch plans. We are doing a special dinner at Le Cinq to celebrate our wedding.

We are planning to drive to Ronchamp (an architect's dream) for the day. We'd love any picnic ideas. We are staying near the Champs-Elysees so we'll need places open very early on Sunday morning to pick up breads/cheeses/meats/etc. We'll be back late that night, and plan to have dinner at L’Alelier de Joel Robuchon. We know it's open super late on Sundays, which is apparently rare, and this seems like a solid food choice.

We'll be in town Monday also...any lunch suggestions welcomed!

As for indulgences, we plan to make stops at Laduree and Pierre Hermes for macarons and pastries. Some breakfast ideas include Pâtisserie Viennoise and Breizh Cafe.

Thanks in advance for any comments. We'd love to report back on our also!
