Trip Report Paris - Delish Dining Report

Jump to last reply

We just returned from Paris and had some exquisite meals as well as some key learnings. I always read Fodors Forums before my trip (even if I don't post much anymore), so here is my contribution.

The first night, we did not have reservations, as we thought we may not beat jet lag. As it turns out, we had plenty of energy, we were giddy with being again in Paris, after 10 years, in the city that I studied abroad as a college student 15 years prior, celebrating our 10th-year anniversary, in a completely adult vacation without our kids (which we love and adore, but boy, were we glad they weren't with us!).

Anyways, we set off to Cafe Constant in the 7th. Arrived at 8:15 pm on a Tuesday to a full restaurant. Not wanting to wait, and aware of other good choices in the 'hood, we went to Chez L'Ami Jean. Also full. Kept walking down the street to L'Affriole. Yup, you guessed it, also full. Isn't there a recession going on? Ah, but this is Pareeeee, and everyone eats out. All the time. Recession or not, the French are clearly not cutting out the "gastro" from their weekly budgets. Getting savvier, we phoned ahead to Pasco, on 74, Bd de la Tour- Maubourg (www.restaurantpasco.com), and snagged a table, perhaps even the last one, because after we arrived other people were turned away. Lesson #1: Get reservations! Otherwise, you may risk dining in the type of establishment that makes you wonder why French food is so popular.

I ordered the prix fixe menu (for 28 E), comprised of a romaine salad with octopus in a mayo, a roasted cornish hen with grapes, and some type of decadent pear with chocolate and hazelnut ice cream. Le husband ordered the Daurade special - a whole fish with a side of vegetables en papillote (26 E) and the Moelleux au chocolat, also with hazelnut ice cream. We ordered a white wine, even though we're not usually white wone drinkers, but by this point, we are starting to feel the effects of jet lag. Everything was delish, nicely presented, in a beautiful environment, and with good service to boot. Unfortunately, the portions were tres petite (hey, I'm 4'11 and 114 pounds, if I say portions are small, they ARE small). Out of the 6 places we ate, this was our 5th favorite (it was up against some tough competition). Despite it being 5th, it was still very good.

More to come, demain, I promise!
