Need a list of must try eats in Paris for September
Hi! Will be visiting Paris with my fiance in mid-September and looking for recs on restaurants we just have to try PLUS any recs on patisseries, etc. for mid-afternoon snacks.
Specifically looking for:
1) MUST EAT HAUTE CUISINE for dinner
2) Best Haute Cusine lunch price fixe deal
3) Sunday night dinner
4) Best bistros to try
5) Best patisseries
6) Cute places for cocktails/wine
7) More casual lunch spots
Also, opinions on:
1) L’Epi Dubin
2) Hélène Darroze
Do not skip Poliane for apple tarts. They are so crisp and flaky they nearly fall apart when you take a bite. Just perfect.
I wish I knew the name of the bistro where I had the best Duck Confit and potatoes grilled in goose fat. After that I was eating Duck Confit in various places but nothing compared to the place I wandered into near Les Halles back in some alley. I keep thinking it was call Espices but next time I'll take a notebook.
Interesting that Pierre au Palais Royal is mentioned. I remembered how much I enjoyed eating there in the early/mid 80s. Classic bistro food and wonderful service. Then it changed owner and sort of drop off the map. I would love to know more about current the food and service.
