|Total score! The perfect vintage LV camera bag|
|Mom in her element!|
|Had to come back and visit my crepe guy at the Les Enfantes Rouge Market in the Marais!|
|Paris isn’t complete without macarons! We stayed away from Laduree now that we have that in NY and sampled some local places with fun flavors, blackberry basil and chocolate fig included!|
|One of my favorite finds of the trip – so good we went there twice! The tapas bar at L’Avant Comptoir. Next door to the popular bistro, this standing room only bar has amazing tapas, great wines, and perhaps the best bread and butter of the trip, and that’s saying a lot!|
|Salty butter on the counter for sharing, spoon please!|
|A perfect glass of Pico chablis, savory citrus macaron with fois gras and salmon croquette.
Our first dinner in Paris was at Chez Dumonet, a spot I had read about last time but we didn’t make it to. World renowned for their duck confit and Grand Mariner soufflé, I had to check it out this time around. Mom used to make Grand Marnier soufflés at dinner parties in her 20s, we tried recreating it at Christmas but it was a bit of a flop so I couldn’t wait to try the real thing. While the service was poor at best (trip advisor reviews are accurate) the food truly was amazing.
|So crazy how it stays late until almost 10pm!|
|Not pictured was our last dinner at Semilla. A farm to table concept with fresh takes on French classics and good, clean, food. Honestly not my favorite and didn’t live up to the hype/reviews. That being said, we had been eating and drinking for 10 days straight at that point so maybe I was a bit over-exerted!|
