Paris Insider Information

Thanks to one of the wittiest food writers I know and an all-around, really nice guy (who I am forever indebted to for turning me on to Korean food), I recently found myself included in some very impressive company.
Company like Susan Loomis. And Clotilde Dusoulier, Dorie Greenspan and Rosa Jackson. And my fellow cheese lover, Camille Malmquist.

David wrote to me at the end of February, asking for a cheese shop recommendation in Paris. It was a tough choice, and obviously I didn't have the chance to visit them all in the four splendid days I spent in Paris last autumn, but out of the few that I did visit, Chez Virginie in the 18th arrondissement was my favorite.

Monsieur Lebovitz has compiled a list of favorites that includes tempting food spots and tantalizing insider information from chefs and writers who live in Paris (and in France).
If you're visiting the City of Light in the near future you couldn't ask for better advice! Pin It

I saw David's post and I was very impressed. And to think - I know YOU.

David said...

glad you liked the list and thanks for participating! (now I need to go to the 17th...)

My must-visit list in Paris keeps getting longer and longer, LouLou. Thanks to you and David for the inside scoop.

What was the Korean resto you went to?

His list has some fantastic recommendations. I'm going back to Paris in May and have written down most of them.

David
Thank you for including me!

And thank you for rubbing in the fact that you have Asian food of all sorts available to you whenever you crave it.
So unfair...

Mimi
Mine too! When are you making your next trip to Paris?

We went to Odori in the 15th, a place that was recommended to David by someone. He thought it was ok, but had had better, and I enjoyed it.

Aw, shucks. :D
I know a great Chinese place if you want to meet up for a meal in May...

My sister is coming to Paris to see me, so let me get back to you about meeting up. I think it is about time though! :)

martha said...

Trust me LouLou, I am making lists.

It is always nice to have recommendations from locals when you're traveling.

I love Lebovitz's "favorites" list! Paris cheese creation and eating is somewhat of an artform. They have several hundred different kinds of cheese! It's really unbelievable - - and at least they have the amazing wine to go with it.

Ah, Paris...
