Hello Fellow Celiacs-
I had posted a few questions about traveling to Paris on this list and I wanted to share my list of restaurants. I had a wonderful time and never got glutened. I found the servers and waiters to be very accomodating... I do not speak french, although I definitely tried. I had such a great trip.

I hope this helps some of you that are soon traveling to Paris!

Ok, so I here is my list (I kept a journal)...
In order in which I ate... I showed my dining card at each place as I ordered!

1) La Table d'Hediard
21, place de la Madeleine
(its on the second floor- first floor wonderful shop of fresh fruits,
wines, jams, and chocolate on the first!)
A tad pricey, but by far my favorite and most delicious meal!!
I ordered Fillet of Roast Beef, fresh greens on the side (30 euros!),
and sorbet for dessert (with out the cookie)

2) Cafe Madeline
1, Rue Trochet - 35, Place de La Madeleine
Only for drinks.

3) Cafe de l'Olympia
I had an Omlet w/chorizo, onions, peppers... with OJ
(sorry don't know address, walking distance from the Arc de Triomphe)

4) Le Reminet
3 Rue Des Grands Degres
(near Notre Dame- probably the one that you have)
I ordered the white fish special of the day, I'm not a fish person,
but it was pretty good.

5) Hagen Daaz
I ate a couple different ones, chocolate, one scoop in a dish

6) Monoprix grocery type stores
Found allergo brand gluten free stuff-- loved the chocolate chip
muffins. chocolate chip cookies not so good, herb cracker things-funny
texture, and saltine like crackers- not sure. The wine at this store
was very reasonably priced. I also purchased some corn chips.

7) Relais Trochet
14, Rue Trochet
The guy that helped me, was wonderful. I showed him my french dining
card, and he responded "no problem". He was truly great! I had a
chicken salad, with out dressing, and served with lemon. It was very
tasty.
Here is the link of the card I liked the most- (I also printed one
English, so I knew what it said!)

8) Took day trip to Versailles, I packed snacks. I ate fries at the
little food place in the gardens. They were tasty.

9) Indiana Cafe (near Opera)- I think there are several-
7, bd des Capucines
It is a very American/variety menu... I had a salad, with avacado, and
a magarita.

10) Went to Louvre- heard good things about Cafe Marley... opted to
not go, with a burger costing 19 euros...

11) Instead we went to Le Musset (and I guess they have a website -
www.lemusset.com)...
5, rue de l'Echelle
We had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. I had a lovely salad -
with chicken, cucumbers, tomatoes, rice, lettuce, carrots and maybe
more! And they also had Berthillion sorbets and ice cream. I asked for
creme broule for dessert, but the waiter, wasn't sure if flour was
mixed in with it... so I had the most delicious cherry and strawberry
sorbet.

12) Be sure to stop by the Fauchon shop for jams... and be sure to
stop by the Mustard Shop Maille-- fresh mustard- if you like that sort
of thing.

I think that is it. I stayed near the Opera and Le Madeleine area... so most places are near that.

I would suggest that you bring a french dining card. Also pack snacks.
I carried a Think Organic bar with me at all times. It was nice to
have snacks in the hotel room also.

If you have any other questions, let me know. I had such a wonderful time in Paris!
Have a nice trip!

Tanya--thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm so excited that you posted this list and had such a great time (with no gluten problems) in Paris, especially since I'll be there on May 24th.

By the way, when you say chicken salad do you mean a salad with grilled chicken on it or chicken salad made with mayonaise? Did you find a lot of things had mayo in them? I'm really not a fan, so I was just wondering.

Hi,
Chicken salad was a lettuce salad with grilled chicken.
I don't remember seeing much of anything with mayo...
Have a great trip!
