Cheese, wine, escargot, crepes, Croque Monsieur, more cheese, more wine...you get the point...French cuisine is world renown! While I am no connoisseur, especially of French cuisine, I do have some recommendations. First, by no means should you ever find yourself in a Pizza Hut, McDonalds, or any other chain restaurant you can find in the US!!! For shame!!! Unless you’re getting some coffee and I will let Starbucks slide, once or twice.
Nonetheless here are some places to stop by while you’re in Paris:
Les Petit Crus for the perfect marriage of cheese and wine (don’t skip this one!)
La Marine for craft cocktails and tapas
Candelaria for Paris-style Spanish food and a “secret” speakeasy
Le Comptoir for croquettes and warmth on a cold day
Le Tres Particular for escargot and a more upscale dining experience
Lastly, I urge you to set aside your food reservations and be open minded. The French are very proud of their dining and food experience, and for heaven’s sake don’t eat a burger from TGI Fridays!!!
