Places I Ate In Paris!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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!
