Background: This was the 4th trip to Paris together for my husband and me (I’ve been a few other times pre-Mark but those were many years ago) but the first where Paris was the only destination. We decided to focus on food for this trip and started making our restaurant/food tour/cooking class reservations about a month out. This was much more advanced planning than we’ve done in the past as previously Paris had been a stopover on the way to or from some place else so we just more or less winged it. We stayed for 8 nights split between 2 hotels due to having hotel points scattered in different accounts.

This was our original itinerary which I had to change after arrival due to it being overly ambitious this time around (and I even thought we had time to squeeze in a few museums, ha ha!):

Sun Nov 27 – arrival, brunch at Un Dimanche a Paris

Mon Nov 28 – lunch at Les Tablettes Jean-Louis Nomicos

Tue Nov 29 – Context food tour, lunch at Agape Substance, dinner at Neva

Wed Nov 30 – change hotels, lunch at Jean Francois Piege, dinner at Septime

Thu Dec 1 – lunch at Kei, chocolate truffle class at Un Dimanche a Paris

Fri Dec 2 – baguette class at La Cuisine Paris, lunch at Sola, dinner at Bistro Volnay

Sat Dec 3 – lunch at Chez L’Ami Jean

Sun Dec 4 – lunch at Le Cinq

Mon Dec 5 – departure

We love this time of year. It’s so festive and living in Southern California cold weather is a novelty for us although I think it was unusually mild in Paris this trip. I had hoped for a dusting of snow!
