13-A Baleker’s Dozen is a cozy restaurant in the Saint Germain area. It’s hidden in a little courtyard so a bit difficult to find at first. It’s owned by an American expat so reservations can easily me made in English which is great for someone like myself who’s French is horrible lol. Great spot for brunch with fresh pressed juice and home made baked good. 13-A Baker’s Dozen 16 Rue des Saints-Pères, 75007 Advertisements
This festival celebrates the harvest of the tiny vineyard on top of a hill in Montmartre. There are numerous food venders, music, fireworks, a parade, and of course tons of wine. Such a great area in Paris and with great weather it was nice to sit on the steps in front of Sacré-Cœur and enjoy the sights.
This week I was able to visit Tour d’Argent Paris. The trip was mainly to visit the wine cellar so unfortunately I was not able to enjoy the pressed duck if you are wondering. The restaurant offers plush interiors and beautiful views of Notre Dame. Yes, this is a splurge for most, but affordable wines by the bottle are available and the friendly staff will gladly help you make a selection. Not sure if I’ll be dining here before I leave, but a girl can dream right.
I know I have been M.I.A for a while, but for good reason. I have just moved to Paris and will be here for 9 months studying Wine and Management at Le Cordon Bleu! arrived two weeks ago and have been trying to take care of the formalities such as bank accounts and getting a working cell phone. Things have been a bit difficult, especially opening a bank account. With all the running around and settling in to my new flat, I have had a little time in between to enjoy Paris and take a few photos. Here are just a few from my first couple of weeks here. I will be back with more shortly!
