Hi AGM - if you could post the link that would be great. I'd like to read it.

susanna - thanks! I'm looking forward to Le Hangar as everyone (and now you too!) raves about it.

Thanks rosetravels for this post. I'm stealing from it as I type.

We're in Paris from 1/25-2/1 and our iterinary includes much of what you have below-some on the same days!

Maybe we'll run into each other!

(Note I'll be the girl with the short blonde haircut trying to wrangle my parents everywhere)

I loved this restaurant in the Marais, I thought the atmosphere was so cozy, value for the euro was great, service was friendly, desserts were TDF!

Vins des Pyrenees (Aux) Traditional French cooking is what you will find at Vins des Pyrenees (Wines of the Pyrenees). Vins des Pyrenees is for seeing and being seen. This old wine cellar, now decked out with red-and-white-checkered tablecloths and old photographs on the walls, has an authentic 1930's feel. The atmosphere is warm, quiet, and intimate, especially on Sundays for brunch. Grilled meat is the specialty of this restaurant. You should expect to pay EUR12-EUR30 for a menu.

Here's another glowing rec for Le Hanger. Gotta go for that amazing slab of foie on the creamiest mashed potatoes ever! I can't wait to return when I'm there in May.

I love the feedback on the restaurants. Giulia - yum. I do want to try different restaurants from different regions.

plafield - I'll have to walk a LOT! I'm a serious potato fan and that sounds amazing. I may have to eat there more than once. So many restaurants, only 7 days...

I was in Paris last year and was pleased to learn at the airport that if we had extra passport pictures (which we did and I always travel with) that we could buy an Orange Card which was good for unlimited Metro and also for the RER to Gif sur yvette which is where we also went to visit friends. It was great just hopping on and off the metro and getting to and from the airport all for one very reasonable fee (we bought a 5 day). They laminate it with your picture right at the round information kiosk at the airport and you don't have to wait in the long line to buy train tickets.

Thanks Christine -
I usually walk so much that it wouldn't be worth it but I'm having problems with my foot. Thanks for the info!

Another restaurant you might want to consider is Chez Omar. If you like couscous you will love this place. It's only about a 5 minute walk from the apartment: http://ditzyspice.blogspot.com/2007/...chez-omar.html

AGM Cape Cod, I have relied on your recommendations in the past and I am preparing for our May trip. We have eaten at La Ardoise for the last three trips for Sunday dinner and am thinking of Fish for this trip. Then I saw your report of Pramil. Can you tell me about the meal and how much etc? thanks

Hi Rose,

I stayed at the same apartment last May and will be there again soon after you in Feb. I think and hope you'll enjoy it as we did. Loved the bath ; )

You mention you may like to try a Hammam - please see the following link with info on the Hammam at the Mosque. I plan to go back this time as well. I think it will be a nice winter time thing to do.

Enjoy, E

Thanks ecat - I was just back to the post to pull off any new restaurant recommendations and to find the link to the Hamman info. Perfect timing!

bboston - are you by chance my soon-to-be landlord? If so that's too funny. Not only did someone who knows my travel partner point out my thread to her (revealing my secret travel planning obsession, darn it!) but my daughter's been keeping up with me in Kenya via my posts. And now if you're our Bill, then I'll know I've lost all anonymity (P.S.: We're very excited about the apartment!)

Here you go plambers! If you go to my trip report on the link above I also have a review of Le Comptoir.

Sunday- It is difficult night to dine out in Paris which seems so strange to our American sensibilities. In past years we have relied upon L’Ardoise in the 1st which is very good. It was a time for a change though and we were very pleased to have found Pramil. It is a small chef owned bistro in the 3rd. It was a slow night which the chef said was usual. The menu was 29€ for Entrée, Plat et Dessert.

Entrées- Omelette aux asperges sauvages (Wild Asparagus Omelet)
Foie gras mi-cuit avec oreille de porc (A foie gras terrine with pork ears in a sweet sour sauce) with a 3€ supplement

Plat- Gigot de Sept Heures (lamb cooked for seven hours served with braised vegetables)
Onglet de veau poêlé aux girolles et purée à l’huile d’olive (veal steak with sautéed mushrooms and potato puree

Dessert- Délice au chocolat tiède aux zestes d’orange confits (warm chocolate cake with orange zest)
Figues Blanches fraîches avec glace au poivre de Sichuan (fresh white figs with Sichuan peppercorn ice cream)

We spent more on wine than we did on dinner which was par for the course. We had a wonderful Riesling to start (Vendanges Tardives Riesling 1997 Domaine Julien Meyur) and a Pommard 2005 Les Cras with the plats. We had a lovely meal at Pramil and were lucky enough to talk to the chef afterwards.
Pramil Restaurant 9, Rue Vertbois 01 43 25 20 79 M- Arts & Métier

Rosetravels,

Yes it's me, Bill. I guess you have lost all anonymity (althoug I guess the same is true for me)! I'm sure you'll have a super time. I will be curious to hear which places you like. We're always interested in finding new places to check out in the neighborhood. As Ecat mentioned, she's there a couple of weeks after you and then we arrive a couple of weeks after that. We'll be there for about 10 days and then head to Alsace for a couple of days followed by a couple days in Zurich before flying home. We'll all have to compare notes afterwards.
