I'm soon to be 18, planning a two week trip to Paris next winter (2012). I know it's a long way off but I'm earning the money and travelling by myself, so a lot is going into this (plus I'm a perpetual planner).
Since I'll be paying for everything myself I plan on having only one or two splurge dinners, with the rest at small bistros and local restaurants. So far I'm thinking L'atelier- what do y'all think?
In addition, anyone who could point me in the direction of their favorite chocolatiers or specialty shops (as well as small restaurants) would be greatly appreciated.
I'll probably be staying in the 7th arondissement but I won't mind travelling across town (in fact I definitely intend to) if there's a particularly fantastic shop or whatever.
