Really dating myself here, but that's o.k. (56) Our first and only trip to Paris had us dining at Michel Rostang, Au Pre Catelan, Taillevent, Jamin, and Chez Phillipe....Haven't a clue as to where to spend our 3 dinners this time. We are passionate about Foie Gras, and just love to be in places where there is warmth and marvelous food. Less important is dining at one of the fancy places, although that being said, if this is where the best food is, so be it! We start off in Barcelona for 2 nights, and then a 10 day cruise...then Rome for two nights, and our final 3 days of this special trip will be in your beautiful city. How well i can remember Berthillon for ice cream during the day, and we'll absolutely be re-living this wonderful experience. When we traveled to your romantic city those years ago, it was just after a Patricia Wells book came out, called "The Food Lover's Guide to Paris"....this book was our bible, and my how we ate....just stupendous.
Should there be a recommended book that might evoke the same excitement of how to spend our 3 days of exquisite eats, I'd so appreciate hearing....and the same goes for any tips on special restaurants, bakeries, chocolatiers, or anything culinary that we should not miss, I would be grateful to hear.
My very best to all of my Chow brethren and sistren (did I just make up a word?) in the City of light.
