Travel Series: Paris Food

Continuing the Travel Thursday fun! Last week I talked about the sights in Paris and saved the best for this week; the food! Parisians are known for their food and wine. With all the sightseeing we did we certainly worked up big appetites.

 Le Square Trousseau is a typical French bistro near the Bastile and has food served all day. Traditional French fare and all very delicious!

La Gare is in the very posh 16th arrondissement and is located in an old train station. The place is just oozing with history! More classic French fare in a very unique and modern interior. The cocktail bar is in the old ticket booth!

Alfredo Positano was Mike’s neighborhood restaurant when he lives in Paris and even though it was Italian food it holds a special memory for him. The owner even still recognized him! It has been open almost 15 years and was packed when we went for dinner. After all of the incredible French food we had been having Italian was a nice break!

I saved the best for last, Bistro Du Sommelier. A restaurant with a menu that changes daily and a truly amazing wine list.

Bistro Du Sommelier is a small bistro located on Hausmann and near a few Metro stops.  Bistro Du Sommelier was opened in 1984 to celebrate the best in French cooking and wine. The owner has won sommelier of France and the World, a pretty big honor!

There are 3 discovery menu’s that feature pairings of food and wine

Even with the current exchange rates, this menu is a deal! The food changes daily and you never know what you might get.

Food in Paris is a real treat, just walk into a bistro and you will most likely have a great meal! Finding the hidden gem is one of our favorite things to do on vacation but having a trusted recommendation is also a treat. We have recommended Bistro Du Sommelier to at least 10 people and everyone that goes has loved it. If you are going to Paris sometime soon make a reservation.
