Fall wedding in Paris

Recommended Posts

Heading to the airport in a couple hours for a wedding.  I am a Chef and def on a budget, but i'd love to get a flavor of street food, ethinic food in the City, what young chefs are up too (bistronomy?) maybe a few good places for drinks with live music/Jazz.

 

Any other must see's foodie wise?  Local favorites

If you'll be there on a Sunday, the Marche Biologique on Blvd. Raspail is wonderful. There are 2 vendors I adore; one makes crepes, the other these cheesy-potato pancake-y things. We also like the Marche les Enfants Rouges in the 3rd. Pleny of other markets abound.

 

Here you can get a taste of some old-school trad food at a very reasonable price...Aux Bons Crus

 

Fulgarances brings in visiting, young chefs. Lunch is a steal.

 

Lobrano did a piece for the Times a while ago, which means these places may be slammed a bit.

Good; great thing about Paris is that it's quite easy to get around via Metro.

 

In the 19th, the Parc de Buttes-Chaumont is quite fabulous. The 8th is too fancy for me to recommend anything, other than a couple of great museums (both the Grand and Petit Palais)

I will post some pictures later but we ended up in the Marais and stumbled on Les Philosophes http://www.cafeine.com/philosophes turned out be a good choise. had some fantastic raw milk cheeses, a tomato tart tatine and pork rillettes.

 

Also consumed was a merguez baguette on the street (yum) and adult beverages at the Caribbean-ish theamed Pick Clops 

(wifi password: elgringo)!  which was fun.  btw appearantly pick clops are the underage kids who pick up cigarette butts off the street to smoke

Promise i'll post pictures but Fulgrances was pretty incredible. we ended up going for dinner even though I was thinking lunch. 3 bottles of wine later. Price per value on the wine was off the hook compared to the US  We eneded up with 3 very different wines for about 5o euros each between the 4 of us ,one from the Jura, one Gamay and one from Alsace to finish. .

 

BTW if anyone is going they have a wine bare across the street that I could not recommend more highly. we paid 21 euro for 4 good and interesting glasses. Both locations there was no oroblems with english. The Som was great.  The neighborhood was so so but couldn't be happier we went.

 

 

Promise more pictures to come (won't say they will be good) Going to try and hit up Frenchies to go in the am .
