My friends, Whitney and Pete (that's right, Pete...now Whitney gets top billing as my friend and you are now "coworker") recently went on a trip to Paris. I told Pete that they should try and get to Le Timbre if they could because we loved it so much. Other than that, I was pretty worthless on the Paris suggestions. I've only been there for a total of 72 hours on two different trips, so my Paris experiences have been a bit hectic. They took their time and had a great week in the city of lights and they are here to tell us all about it.
Recently my boyfriend and I went to Paris on vacation. Trekking all around the city to see their beautiful sites can certainly work up your appetite. The food there is, of course, top notch, but we had a problem finding a restaurant that was open on Mondays. And after trying Emily and Mark's recommendation of Le Timbre, the restaurants had a lot to live up to. Yelp to the rescue! We found a cute little restaurant that was inside a wine shop called Juveniles. All the "real Parisians" recommended we eat at the smallest of restaurants, apparently the smaller it is, the better the food. The locals were on to something because this place was small and delicious. And bonus: it's open on Mondays, when most Parisian restaurants shut their doors.
We started with a cheap bottle of french red, because in Paris, wine is cheaper than water, and we were eating dinner in a wine shop. They served it in a carafe, which just made it feel more authentic. (Editor's Note: Whitney had a nice, clear picture of this table scene, but I thought this blurry one was more artsy)
