wedding tuesday- honeymoon help.

In honor of 4th of July I have bumped up Wedding Wednesday to today! I need some honeymoon help -- don't worry this won't get weird, I promise. I need help deciding where to EAT on our honeymoon! We've got all of our major sites picked out (Musee d'Orsay, Versailles, Sacre Coeur, and the Centre Pompidou top the list) but I'd love advice on where (and WHAT) to eat in Paris! I studied abroad for a month in the city but I distinctly remember having a diet of fresh bread, croissants, crepes and ham sandwiches-- not the worst thing-- but I'd like to mix it up. I suppose I should mention we both don't like seafood or super smancy food :)

I'd love your suggestions!!

  1. so exciting! i wrote a whole post on where i ate in paris the last time i went, if you're interested! http://www.thebootblog.net/2011/04/eat-in-paris.html
    but i would also add l'as du falafel in the jewish quarter (best falafel in town, in my opinion) and chez robert et louise, cutest little bistro ever with copper pots, open fire etc. :)

  2. We are going in November! So I'm going to peek at some of the ideas people come up with. Matt and I have been before and I can tell you, you have to get mussels and frittes...they have them everywhere practically...but seriously the best meal! Also you must must must go to Angelina's and get some hot chocolate. Trust me on this.

  4. Haha! Thanks for clarifying what kind of 'help' you need. ha!

    Street food. I love street food in Europe. Very different than anywhere else. Plan a few fancy shmancy meals then everything else is on the go.

  7. Check out Cafe Constant or Les Cocottes. I've had great meals at both and am pretty sure you can find info online. Also check out Pierre Herme or Aoki for macarons if you don't stick to Lauduree. I hope you have a great time!

  10. Our favorite part about eating in Paris was trying new cafes or getting crepes from a street vendor. I say just explore! You can't go wrong.

  11. The day that you go to the Centre Pompidou, there is a great Lebanese place nearby, it's called Man Ouche (62 rue Rambuteau, 75004 Paris) - and order the Labne Zabnar Extra! I promise you will not be disappointed. Also, be sure to visit La Duree or Pierre Herme (I prefer Herme) for macarons. You will probably have to wait in line, but it will be worth it. Additionally, if you are a big fan of tea, there are (I believe) two Marriage Freres salons de the in Paris. The tea tins make great gifts, the tea menu is amazingly extensive, and the restaurant is quite special. Bon appetit!
