Following our recent trip, here are new places we loved in Paris such as where to eat from casual to fancy (including a great Italian restaurant), places we discovered to shop, a museum on the history of Paris, and the cool hotel that we enjoyed.
For ALL my Paris advice, make sure you read my Paris Round-up post before and during your trip to Paris. Lots more not to miss things for your trip there!
Where to Eat
Remember to make reservations…you can do this online.
Howard and I had an elegant Valentine’s Day dinner here. Beautiful interiors.
This is a delicious Italian restaurant where they serve fettuccini mixed tableside. There are views of the Eiffel Tower outside.
This is a colorful French brasserie where they have really embraced “Le Brunch.”
We went here for lunch. It’s a small, relaxed, bistro serving large portions of traditional food by Chef Stéphane Jego. Make sure to save room for the rice pudding!
Again, remember to read the Paris Highlights Round-up for ALL my shopping recommendations.
This fun (Vacation Home) shop was near our hotel at 4 Rue de Cléry, 75002 Paris
This is a very old shop where they hand-calligraphy names on presents, mostly skincare.
This fun clothing store is at 1 Rue Saint-Fiacre, 75002 Paris.
Where To Stay – The Hoxton
Annie from Most Lovely Things wrote about the Hoxton Hotel a few years ago. I remember wanting to go there after her beautiful post! So it was a nice surprise that Howard booked our five-night stay at the Hoxton. The hotel atmosphere is lively and the food in their restaurants is delicious.
One afternoon, I sat on the lobby balcony (above) for tea.
What To See – Carnavalet Museum
The Musée Carnavalet in Paris is dedicated to the history of the city. The museum occupies two neighboring mansions.
