Frog Legs & Foie Gras
I am returning to Paris for my birthday early this spring. I love frog legs and most of the restuarants i frequent never offer them. Is there a hidden gem somewhere I don't know about that serves frogs legs??? I also love foie gras, so any suggestions for a place that serves good foie gras, would be great. One last question, where should I go for the one big wow dinner, or lunch??? Thanks for all your help!! I am staying in the 7th but will travel for the best food you suggest. Happy Chowing!!!
For a birthday meal, I think you can do no better than lunch at Taillevent. Their 70 Euro Special is a worthy celebration, and if you choose, you can go up from there, but I don't see the need. The last b'day I celebrated in Frane was there, and they gave me a gorgeous dessert wheeled in on a special cart, and everyone, including the owner came in to sing Bon Anniversaire to me.
I'd be delighted to repeat that experience!
Les Temps au Cerises, 4th, on the corner of rue du Petit Musc & therue Cerisaie. Lunch only, Mon thru Fri.
Cafe Sully [I think], cafe in the 4th on the on Rue St. Antoine, they have frog's legs as an entree.
foie gras: the foie gras served as an entree [and made in house] at La Biche au Bois, 45 Av. Ledru-Rollin, 12th, near the Gare de Lyon is great. This place is open Mon-Fri for lunch and dinner. Has a great twenty something euro menu, really good food.
