[editor's note | bakeries & tea shops : recommended by laily & yvette]

Fauchon : one of my favorites, love the prepared tea sandwiches/salads here; grab some and head to the Luxembourg Gardens.
Pierre Hermé : [also listed above] like a boutique, with 9 delicious éclairs -- the vanilla eclair is to die.
Mariage Frères : best tea shop in paris, always bring home some "wedding imperial tea"; I would suggest the location in the Marais
Café de Flore : I  love going to Café de Flore—I know it's supposedly "touristy" but  whenever I am there, it feels like you are seeing with the  Sartorialist'ss eyeglasses and everyone there is French.



[editor's note | restaurants : recommended by laily & yvette]

La Régalade : 123, rue St Honoré, 75001

Les Papilles Bistro : 30, rue Gay Lussac 75005

Passe Flor : very good

l'Atelier de Joel Rubuchon : 5, rue de Montalembert 75007

Lentrecote : best steak and frites

Les Comptoir du Relais : 9, carrefour de l'Odéon 75006 -- right  by St. Germain, I don't think they take reservations so you have to  wait in line, but it's moderately priced and casual, and there's a lot  of variety on the menu; good food, but also, a great location in a nice  busy area

Hôtel Costes : a cool spot the food is good there, but I think maybe 30 40 euro for entrées a person

Chez Georges :  also good -- casual and moderately priced; tricky to find so take a cab but a good meal

Fables of Fontaine : 131, rue Saint-Dominique, 7th (Metro : Ecole Militaire)

Afaria : 15, rue Desnouettes, 15th, (Metro: Convention) --
more basque stylea

what-to-take-home-cg

A large part of the charm and intrigue of Paris is, without a doubt, the careful construction and respect for tradition that goes into many of the products and services available. It is always lovely to bring a few items home to remind you of your beautiful Parisian adventures, whether handmade laces or carefully embroidered linens from Yves Delorme, a new favorite scent, or treasures found at a flea market. The possibilities are endless. Additionally, while walking along the Seine towards the Musée D'Orsay, you may fall in love with a subtle watercolor, being sold by a budding artist. Cards from your favorite shops, postcards, and other such fun snippets, collected throughout the trip, can certainly bring back wonderful memories of unforgettable experiences for years to come.
