Paris Eats

Finding a good place to eat in Paris was like throwing darts at a giant bullseye. There were a few really good places, but all of them were tasty.  We focused on eating mostly in our neighborhood, Rue Cler in the 7e near the Eiffel Tower and Ecole Militare, but we ventured out a few times to other neighborhoods.  Here’s the low down of where we went, what we got, and if we mentioned it, we would most likely recommend it!

Rue Cler:

Café Central (a more American menu, Shaun had a duck confit plate and I had a pizza)

Brasserie Aux PTT (for breakfast, we both ordered the petit dejeuner francais – coffee, oj, croissant & jam.  best breakfast during our Parisian stay)

Café du Marche (Shaun had a flattened chicken and mashed potato dish, I had a pasta with truffle sauce.  we loved the atomosphere and location of this place.)

– Café on Rue St Dominique (can’t remember the name, we both ordered breakfast: petit dejeuner which included a croissant, buttered baguette, coffee & oj)

Café Constant (Christian Constant is a Michelin rated chef with 3 restaurants on the same block – I ordered the plat du jour which was a piglet chop, Shaun ordered blonde aquitaine steak & shallots with mashed potatoes.  For dessert he had Ile Flottante with salty caramel – an egg white meringue, and I had chocolate quenelle with creme anglais, picture below)

Marais:

Chez Janou (a very popular restaurant, Shaun had ratatouille & tuna, I had risotto & scallops.  We met up with friends here and for dessert had the chocolate mousse and tartelette aux fruit)

Café Hugo (we didn’t eat here, but it was a cool place for drinks on Place de Vosges)

Near flea market Puces St. Ouen:

– Les Terrasses de Cayenne (stopped in for lunch while we were shopping the flea market, Shaun had ribs and I had gorgonzola penne)

Rue Montorgueil:

– Can’t remember the name of the cafe, but we both ordered super delicious salads for lunch:

Stohrer (France’s oldest pastry shop, we picked up two Puit d’Amours which were like creme brulee inside of a croissant. Amazing.)

Versailles

La Flottille, in the gardens of Versailles (we both ordered a heaping bowl of Onion Gratinee)

1e:

Pierre Herme Macarons (we orderd a box of 7, with flavors ranging from chocolate to anise + saffron)

We still have one more day at the end of our trip to spend in Paris – and we’re hoping to gorge ourselves on any other French delicacies that we may have missed out on then.  Any recommendations???
