As much as I am keen on staying in bed and watching movies all weekend – I reckon I’ve made myself pretty clear about that -, I also love walking around in the streets of Paris, and having lunch/brunch/coffee in my favourite places in the city (food, always).
After introducing you to Les Chouettes, let me now take you to La Fourmi Ailée.
A typical French restaurant decorated with shelves full of books (not that shelves full of books are typically French, but the organised mess that appears on these ones definitely says « made in France »), poems written on the walls and unmatched crockery by the window.
It is one of my favourite places to meet up with friends and family. Plus, the blanquette de veau and fondant au chocolat are to die for (and trust me, I know what I’m talking about).
Right after that, I like to cross the Seine and head to Le Marais for a chocolat viennois (« full » is an unknown word to my belly).
Café Charlot is definitely the best place for it. And also for bumping into Jean Dujardin and friends. Classical Paris.
