What We Ate in Paris

What We Ate in Paris

Instead of the usual Wednesday Whimsy post, I’m going to go ahead and get the worst photos of the Paris trip over with. Not all of them are awful, but you just can’t do much for indoor winter dinner photos, even in Paris. Well, I suppose someone could figure it out, but I’d rather eat.
From the food tour of Montmartre that we did with Clotilde:

Lunch at Le Petit Cler:

Ladurée adventures:
Lunch at Les Philosophes:

Various Breakfast in America breakfasts:

Lunch at Chez Plumeau in Montmartre:

Cider we tried at Mont Saint-Michel:

Dinner at Pizza Sant’Antonio:

Why do we not have cookies and cream cake at Starbucks in the U.S.?!

Birthday breakfast at Le Pain Quotodien:

Really good crepes from Creperie-Oroyona:

My birthday eclair from Boulangerie Heuriter:

Our final dinner at Tamarind:

The highlights of the trip for me were definitely Le Petit Cler and Ladurée. I can’t believe I didn’t get to Ladurée until my third trip to Paris. All of those lost macarons! We are planning to take a trip to the New England/NYC area this fall and you better believe I’m making the most of the one there. Le Petit Cler was such a fun surprise. We had been walking so much already that day and we took the Metro as close as you can to the Eiffel Tower. It was lunch time when we got into that area and we ended up walking a good amount past the Iron Lady to get to Le Petit Cler. It was worth it. It was so affordable and there were regular Parisians there taking their lunch break from work. It was great. Can we go back yet??
