Parisian Pizza

Del Papa!

233Bis, rue du Faubourg St Honoré – 75008 – Paris

A recommendation from the concierge. Who am I to argue?

Feels like home!

Oh mom, and her cultured dairy products.

Oh me, and my veg.

Caponata with pine nuts and golden raisin. Charred to a crisp. Just the way I like it!

And of course:

Our legs are walked. Our bellies are full. Our expectations exceeded!

This is an excerpt from my original post in Paris. Del Papa was a wonderful restaurant with kind, friendly and helpful servers.

The table were very close together, as ALL Parisian restaurants are, and I loved the cozy feel.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and will return when I am in Paris again!

Typical French: Dining with the locals

Rue Cler has been a traffic-free street since 1984. If you want to witness the art of Parisian living, you are told to come here. Done and done.

We had a simple dinner with the locals at Tribeca.

Tribeca

36 Rue Cler 75000 – Paris

This place was packed!

Salad and vegetables for me.

And for mom…pizza.

I no longer wonder where I get my obsession. It’s inherited.

There is one thing I have to say about the Parisians. So helpful! Even in a restaurant surrounded by locals, with every table full, we were treated with such care and sincerity. I can’t compliment them enough!

As the sun set, so did we. We couldn’t get back to the hotel fast enough. Ex-hau-sted!

This is an excerpt from my original post in Paris. Tribeca was everything a casual Parisian dining experience should be. It wasn’t fancy, it wasn’t quiet. It was crowded, and full of families and friends enjoying a meal.

The tables were so close that most were touching. The menu was full of dished from pasta, pizza and salads to pastries, poultry and chocolate.

The food wasn’t anything over the top… but it was good and the entire dining experience was wonderful!

I would definitely visit and eat on Rue Cler again!

Vegan in Paris: Who says the French can’t cook without butter!

We then settled in for an exquisite dinner. Another concierge recommendation!

Le Potager du Marais

22-24 Rue Rambuteau – 75003 Paris

A Bio Vegetarian Restaurant!

The food was A-mazing!

See the joy!

We started with Mushroom Pate & Hummus that escaped the camera’s eye.

The Mushroom Pate tasted like Thanksgiving! We were fighting over it.

Second course: Vegetable Gratin with Hazelnuts

Vegetable Curry with Quinoa

Both dishes were full of flavor and oh.so.good! If I lived in Paris you know where you’d find me!

But the absolute HIGH:

Chocolate Hazelnut Torte with Chestnut Flour

Must.Recreate.Immediately!

Heaven in my mouth!

2 for 2 for our concierge!

This is an excerpt from my original post in Paris. Le Potager du Marais is a quaint restaurant in the heart of the city. 5 minutes walking from Notre Dame. If I lived in Paris I would be here every day!

The service was wonderful, attentive and helpful. They answered all of my particular questions with ease and a smile. I can be trying 🙂

The food without a doubt rivaled the best vegan restaurant food I have ever had.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and will return when I am in Paris again!

Where Am I?
