If I could only ever go to one café in Paris for the rest of my life, I’d pick Le Saint Germain. It ticks all of the boxes – great location, strong coffee, friendly people, and it’s always open. I fell in love with this Left Bank spot on my first trip to Paris. Since then, I’ve become a regular.
I first tried a version of this orzo salad with goat cheese seven years ago and it was seriously love at first bite. Immediately I asked my friend for her recipe and it’s been a favorite ever since. I’ve made a few tweaks over the years, which is why it now features goat cheese instead of feta. This is the perfect summer lunch or dinner and is a great recipe to make ahead!
Over the weekend I had the opportunity to check out Ruinart’s new second skin packaging at their La Maison 1729 pop up. Ruinart is holding a series of tastings, discussions, brunches, and personalization workshops at La Maison 1729 in advance of the official second skin launch on October 15th. In true Ruinart fashion, it was a perfect event.
With the arrival of cooler temperatures in Paris I have to admit I’ve been daydreaming a bit about fall and winter menu changes and some of my favorite dishes. I thought it would be the perfect time to share my top five classic French restaurants in Paris (it’s hard for me to limit my picks, I could easily make a list of 50). The restaurants within all hit the marks for excellent food, service, and atmosphere.
I wandered into Mon Square completely by (happy) accident after visiting the Musée de l’Orangerie. I’d wanted to try it out ever since I saw photos of it in November. It’s one of those places where you think it’s not possible for it to be that beautiful in real life. It exceeded all expectations.
