Our Restaurant Tour

After Crêperie Josselin, we continued to have wonderful meals.  We ate at Cafe Constant the next night, returning because we'd had such a good meal there the last time we went.  Ryan couldn't resist starting with an order of foie gras and we both had duck for our main course.  It was so tender it was falling off the bone.  The duck was accompanied by a little round of duck and mushrooms, topped off with a bit of mashed potatoes.  It was pure heaven.  For dessert we shared a floating island, which frankly, isn't either of our kind of dessert. I'm not really sure what happened there.  This restaurant is very tourist friendly, with an English menu and plenty of English speaking waitstaff.  However, it doesn't sacrifice it's quality in order to please foreign palates.

Our next meal was at Chez Les Anges which is pretty much the best restaurant we've been to in Paris.  It was so good.  And with the main course, they give you these mashed potatoes which are not so much mashed potatoes as a delicious vat of butter with perhaps some potato and maybe truffle oil added.  No idea what they put in them, but they are insane.  The crowd is incredibly local, which means no English menu, although the staff kindly translated. 

Both Cafe Constant and Chez Les Anges are within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower, which means that both nights we went for a little stroll over to see it all lit up.  Too pretty.  If your timing is lucky you can even catch it sparkling.

Our next three meals were slightly less impressive, but still quite delicious.  All three featured English menus and staff that spoke English which made the dining experience really easy (also less exciting, someday I'll tell you about Liz and the chicken livers).  We ate at La Marlotte, Maison du Jardin and P'tit Troquet.  Oh what I wouldn't give to be back there now.
