Paris Trip Report June 1-6

Planning this trip, I scoured the chow boards to devise an eating itinerary to equal the best meals of my life. Here you go:

Angelina- Hot chocolate and strawberry tart. The chocolate was divine, the tart not so much

Les Cocettes- First course special of the day, asparagus wrapped in prosciutto. Main- Pigs feet caramelized in potatoes. I can't even begin to tell how delicious this was. Service was awesome

Poilane- Do I need to say anything about this? chocolate croissant/apple tart. Spoiled for life

Cuisine de Bar- Breakfast here twice. Poilane bread and croissants/jams. The lovely girl that works in the morning was so cute and nice!

Le Comptoir creperie- Jambon/gruyere crepe- not as good as the breizh cafe

Spring- 6 courses with wine pairings, one of the best meals ever. Service was great. They seated us downstairs, which was ok, but I wish we could have been upstairs

Context travel chocolate walking tour with Barbara Austin- We walked around the St. Germain area for a tour of 8 odd chocolate/bakeries
Pierre marcolini- The single origin chocolate was awesome
Pierre Herme- Ipsahan chocolate with lychee, raspberry, rose blew my mind. Macaroons better than Laduree
Patrick Roger- The most creative chocolates I have ever seen. The cocoa dusted/caramelized almonds were the best

Rose Bakery- I loved evey inch of this place. I had oan fried mackerel w/ dijon potato salad. The best fried fish i have ever had. Our waiter was so lovely. Apricot crumb cake for dessert.

Pozzetto- Chocolate and pistachio gelato. Best Gelato all trip (I know I am throwing that "the best I ever ate" thing around, but believe me when I say it is completely true)

Les Papilles- This place was one of the favorites of the trip. Picked a bottle of wine, didn't have to decide on what to eat....So relaxing.

Willi's Wine Bar- I had the best salmon here. Service was awesome, wine was great

Berthillion- I liked this ok, but Pozzetto was waaay better

Breizh Cafe- I could eat here everyday of my life. We had a traditional crepe with gruyere and egg. The crepe looked like lace and was awesome. The next one blew my mind. Sweet crepe with salted caramel inside, rhubarb sauce, strawberry, and a tiny scoop of ice cream. omg

Candelaria- When you go in, it is confusing about what to do. Sit, or order at the counter? If there is seat, grab it quickly. Order off of the blackboard menu. Had 2 carnita tacos, 2 vegetarian, guacamole, tostada. Really good for mexican in paris. The best thing there was a black bean brownie. It was probably the best brownie i have ever had. I did it again with the "best ever" claim. That is what happens when you go to Paris I guess

There are also numerous other snack places we went. Eric Kayser was delicious, as was Denise Acabo
