Trip Report Champagne and foie gras (another mostly food Paris & Reims report)

Jump to last reply

Mark and I just returned from 10 days of eating our way through Paris and Reims, and drinking champagne too!

Here are the photos from our trip http://pix.kg/p/8404022241105%3A1916938612/scl

We decided to dine less extravagantly this time, no Michelin stars, oops one restaurant was awarded their first after we booked. We also attended a GTG, took a bakery class and even fit in a few museums ;)

We flew Air France and stayed at the Park Hyatt in Paris again (what would I do without miles and points)? No upgrade at the PH this time but we did get comped drinks and breakfast, not sure why unless they’re still trying to make up for the problem I had last time. It was appreciated even if I only woke up in time once to have brekkie. In Reims we stayed at a really lovely 2 room B&B, Maison d’hotes Les Telliers (more on that later).

First day’s lunch at Zinc www.zinc-opera.com
We picked this place because it was close to the hotel and seemed to offer the perfect sort of refined comfort food for our jet lagged state. Mark had the foie gras to start followed by scallops and I had the salade Lyonnais and onglet de veau from the daily ardoise. With a carafe of wine, it was €80. I wouldn’t go out of my way to eat here but it’s a good “if you’re in the neighborhood” kind of place. We appreciated the quick service as we both desperately needed a nap so we could stay awake for that evening’s GTG.
