So, I’ll be honest: while I’m traveling, I generally don’t have a ton of time to document all my experiences. But now that I’m back home, I thought it as good as time as any to let you in on a few fabulous restaurants I’ve stumbled across in one of my second homes, Paris.
1. Azabu. 3 Rue André Mazet, 75006 Paris. Métro: Odéon, Mabillon, Saint-Michel.
I wasn’t a fan of Japanese food until I came to this restaurant. Drool over the delicious seaweed topped scallops, then indulge just a bit in the white fish. I loved every single bite.
Quick note: Make a reservation! Prices are steep. And the restaurant is teeny tiny. Get ready for intimacy!
2. L’Equateur. 151 rue St Maur, 75011 Paris. Métro: Parmentier, Goncourt, Couronnes.
I’ll be honest, I haven’t been to L’Equateur in a few years, but the lingering taste of delectable African food is hard to forget. The Poulet Braisé is not to be missed!
3. Aux Trois Elephants. 36 rue Tiquetonne, 75002 Paris. Métro: Etienne Marcelle, Les Halles, Sentier.
My Parisian girlfriends love to go pop by this Thai place after a long day of events. Fried, sautéed, grilled…they have a strong selection of treats, including ginger shrimp, curry chicken, and much more. No need to reserve. Prices are reasonable.
4. Cafe L’Étincelle. 42 Bis rue Rivoli, 75004 Paris. Métro: Hotel de Ville, Saint Paul.
Ok, I’ll be honest: this place isn’t that mind blowing. But here’s why I love Café Étincelle: standard French food (think escargots and steak frites), free Wifi, English speaking wait staff (should you need it), and some of the best people watching in Paris. For some reason I always feel at home at Café Étincelle, and I’m sure you will too. My favorites are the Escargot (duh) and the Chicken with Mushroom Risotto (pictured above).
Where do you go to enjoy delicious food à Paris?
