I will be travelling with a small pack of family in a few months: part of the trip involves a short stay in Paris, and then a train trip to Toulouse. I have heard TERRIFIC things about the TGV, and less than terrific things about the food available on the TGV. So I thought... traiteur! Train-picnic!
So I have 2 related questions.
1. Can anyone recommend good traiteurs either within pleasant walking distance of our hotel (Quai Voltaire/rue de l'universite) or within pleasant walking distance of the gare Montparnasse?
2. Following up on that, any suggestions re: good train picnic food? And if your mind turns immediately to bread and cheese, I would be most grateful for suggestions (same neighbourhoods) for good cheese purveyors and/or bakeries!
