My time in Paris was absolutely amazing and while I had some great food, I can say, not a lot of it was actually French. Anyone that knows me, knows how open I am to trying different types of cuisine. I LOVE it. But, for whatever reason, I am not now, nor have I ever been, big on French food. I think it has something to do with the texture of the few dishes I’ve tried.

I will say this, I noticed a few common themes among most of the French restaurants:

  • Every French restaurant has Beef Tartare, Escargot, a Duck dish and Fois Gras (fatty duck liver) on the menu
  • Chicken is not big in Paris, duck is the poultry of choice. And if there happens to be chicken on the menu, it is served one way…roasted
  • There are tons of Italian restaurants, I mean tons. Like 3 on 1 block.
  • Dessert is offered with every meal (and I accepted every meal)
  • France has some of the best baked goods EVER!
  • They do breakfast extremely well
  • Much like New York City, Paris is one big ball of diversity. You can find everything there that you can find in NYC (e.g. Asian, West Indian, Italian, Mexican, Middle Eastern food, etc.)

So, I won’t make this a real wordy read, but it will be all about the food.

Now normally, I’m not a breakfast or sweets person BUT, they do it sooooo well! I looked forward going to this little cafe that was down the block from the hotel every morning. They even have a location in New York.
