Spring lunch in Paris

1

Friends ask me all the time about the food in Paris. You may know by now that I love my favorite boulangeries and patisseries that I have found on my walks. This happens to be my favorite go to lunch in Paris which is salmon tartare. I lunched with my friend Gail of Perfectly Paris and I haven’t stopped thinking of this perfect Spring lunch.

One of my favorite views of the Marais I stopped by my friends apartment later in the evening. I could stare out the window all night. The light hit the buildings perfectly.

Bistro Paul Bert – Lunch in Paris

0

I met up with some Chicago friends visiting Paris for a little walking tour of the city and of course lunch. Over coffee we decided to venture off to Bistro Paul Bert because it was on both of our lists and not to far away by foot.

The restaurant was classically decorated and we were presented with a chalkboard menu at our table. Starter, Main Course and Dessert 19 euros. A great deal in Paris! We all agreed that the food was great and we are glad we tried this classic French Bistro. If you are in the area stop on by. They just extended their hours to serve through the afternoon. A little more about that here from The Paris Kitchen

Perfectly Paris Lunch

I met my friend Gail and her daughter Yasmin for coffee a while back in Montmartre. We were having fun just catching up and the weather was beautiful. She was having friends over for lunch and she invited me to join. It was a great memory as her friends were so sweet and the food was delicious.

Le Relais de l’ Entrocote – Foodie Friday

0

When traveling to Paris a traditional steak frites meal should be on your list. At Le Relais de l’Entrocote there is only one option on the menu. Steak frites ordered just the way you like it. This place does it right and the delicious tarragon flavored sauce on the steak is delicious!

Foodie Friday – Caffe dei Cioppi

0

Caffe dei Cioppi – located at 159 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine

This Italian restaurant tucked away on a side street has just a few tables. If you are lucky to score one you are in for a treat! The chef has an open kitchen and you can watch the food being prepared one plate at a time. I went with friends who made a lunch reservation. The menu is small but the dishes are flavorful and the food is done right.

My favorite. This actually had anchovies in it but you couldn’t taste them. Salty with capers and olives. But flavorful and homemade pasta. Yum!

Image

Ricotta Ravioli the table next to us ordered this and it looked and smelled so good! Taste was great too. I am just not a personal fan of peas.

Fish Maigre with sausage and potatoes.

Of course best course for last was the flourless chocolate cake. Can’t really go wrong!!

Grazie – Paris Pizza

I really love the food here in Paris but also really have a strong love for Italian. Recently on a walk with a friend we popped in to the adorable “Grazie” restaurant on Beaumarchais. The place looked to cute just to walk by. We had a coffee and good chat. The staff was friendly and even gave us a taste of their naked pizza with rosemary, sea salt and olive oil. It was just the right amount to get me to come back a few days later.

Lunch in Paris

I recently finished the book “Lunch in Paris” it follows a woman’s love story with her husband and Paris food. Elizabeth fill the book with detailed descriptions of life in Paris and the French food creates and includes amazing recipes after each chapter. If I could have lunch in Paris today this is where I would sit.

Located in the Marais in Paris. I love the cafe chairs, the specials written on the chalkboard and the waiter in the window. Paris Classique!!
