Oysters 2010 Paris help
First I would like to thank everyone on this board for great information! Great to find other people out there that are so passionate about their foods.
I will be in Paris on the second week of October 2010 for 4 days and have compiled a list of Oyster places to hit.
I will be staying in the 11th arr but will travel via metro. Please let me know if I should add any more places to my oyster list. Also any other helpful information regarding to the types of oysters that I should definitely must have. I'm reading a lot about utah beach oysters.
Here is my list.
Pleine Mer 10th arr
La Baron Rouge 12th arr
L 'Ecume St. Honore 1st arr
Garnier 8th arr
Please let me know if I should add/remove any from my list.
All opinions are welcomed!
Well, as I've said, I think "L 'Ecume St. Honore 1st arr" is really cool for both its bivalves and the piped music of seagulls - not for everyone, but they spoke to me and I really like the Utah Beaches at the Ecailler du Bistrot (Paul Bert).
I tried to see if Regis was open the other day but got diverted by some lovely apparition and my favorite for several seasons and reasons (incl proximity to Alleose, FNAC, Darty, etc) used to be l'Huitrier. Ah so much to do, so much to taste, so little time.
re: John Talbott
Thank you John talbott! Just got back from Ecailler du Bistrot (Paul Bert) and the Utah beach oysters are amazing. Had the seafood plateau and must come back. Great servivce there! French oysters are to die for! Where should I head to next? I may go to l'eclume in the 1st tomorrow.
Huiterie Régis - great place as long as all you want is oysters & wine. One of our favorite stops.
