When I was thirteen I lived In Paris for a year. It didn’t quite go as well as I had envisioned and ended up being quite a difficult time for me. However, I did learn some great places to eat and shop.
I’m going to make the bold statement and say that Carette makes the best éclair in all of Paris. Go if you want traditional French fare that’s tasty in a pretty setting.

By far the best meal I’ve had in Paris recently. The food is fresh, inventive and beautiful but you don’t feel like you’re eating a science experiment. I’ve been there twice and both times have been exceptional.

La Grande Epicerie de Paris:
Le Bon Marche is the chicest department store in Paris, so its no wonder that the chicest food store in Paris would be located on the bottom floor. It’s the one place where you can get ingredients from everywhere and specialty items you can’t find anywhere else, it’s like Dean & Deluca but with a glorious french touch.

A really open and beautiful store; where you can get anything from linen bedding to an Isabel Marant top. It also has a café which serves up simple, fresh dishes.

I went here for the first time this past month and totally regretted not knowing about it before. It’s an adorable space with a great vibe. Fresh vegetables and kitchen basics are sold in the front along with homemade baked goods. They also serve lunch which features fresh, well done simple food that is delicious. Don’t leave Rose Bakery without trying something sweet, it’s a must.

PS: I’m really excited/honored to be featured on The Women Take Over this week. It’s a website for women, by women, which is all about being the best person you can be, for yourself and others. I strongly urge you to take a look.
