Lunch In Paris

Eating lunch on your balcony of property 018

Eating in Paris, the culinary capital of the world, is always a pleasure. Eating lunch in Paris can be a particular pleasure since it offers a wide variety of possibilities for price, venue or choice of food.

Every neighborhood in Paris is filled with small specialty food shops. Paris apartment rentals afford the visitor the chance to get to know, and feel a part of, a real Parisian neighborhood. Browse the local boulangerie for a baguette, a thin loaf of French bread; the fromagerie for a tasty cheese; the charcuterie for some sausage, or other meat; and the patisserie for some fine French pastries. Or grab a bottle of wine and go home to your own Paris luxury apartment and enjoy a great lunch in comfort.
In fine weather, those same fixings can be turned into picnic fare. Paris abounds in possible picnic spots, and, since Paris vacation rentals are available all over the city, one is sure to be near to your Paris luxury apartment. While the Luxembourg Gardens on the left bank and the Place des Vosges on the right bank are two of the better known picnic spots, part of the fun of picnicking in Paris is finding your own special place from the many along the Seine, or the boulevards, or the many parks.
If picnicking or preparing your own lunch is not what you want, you still have many choices for eating lunch in Paris. Because most people staying in Paris apartment rentals aim to live like a Parisian that, most often, includes lunch at a neighborhood café or bistro. Often, cafes and small restaurants in the areas where people live and work, rather than in tourist areas, offer the best food and the best values around. While Paris cafes are the quintessential places to sip coffee, and other beverages, unhurried and enjoy the Parisian experience, they also serve food, often soup and sandwiches, and are great places for lunch.
Bistros are small restaurants that offer slightly heartier lunch offerings.
Traditional bistro fare can include French classics such as coq au vin, chicken cooked in red wine, and boeuf bourguinon, beef in a burgundy wine gravy with mushrooms and onions. Paris also has many ethnic restaurants that reflect the city’s diversity. These restaurants offer many different choices for lunch in the city.
Lastly, lunch is also served on boats that traverse the Seine and in the restaurants of the many hotels of Paris. Many hotel restaurants are among the highest rated, such as Alain Ducasse in the Plaza Athenee Hotel and Le Cinq in the Hotel George V.
Whatever you choose, allow yourself the time and comfort to explore the wonderful City of Lights, the hub of haute cuisine at any meal.
