Happy New Year from Paris!

I am lucky to spend year-ends in Paris, and one of my favorite things to do is to window shop or, as the French say more colorfully, faire du lèche-vitrines, literally to go lick the windows). Especially for edible (or drinkable) items.

Here are some of the nicer ones I found since my last post.

For a stroll . . .

Passage de la Madeleine
for  something to drink . . .

Aux Vergers de la Madeleine
or for something to eat.

Dalloyau, my old favorite
Pierre Hermé
Lenôtre
Arnaud Delmontel
Lenôtre
Or you can just come to our place, for some of my annual homemade foie gras.

Foie gras chez nous
In any event, Happy New Year from Paris, and good eating in 2014!

Leche-vitrines or leche-screen. Delicious! Bonnes fetes de fin d'année, or simply put, happy new year!

Last time I was in Paris I had truly excellent and authentic sushi at JIN, 6 rue de la Sourdière. This is the only other branch of a Japanese sushi place and my Japanese friends were very happy. Very expensive, unfortunately, about $200 per person.

Kunitoraya has the best udon noodles outside of Shikoku, where the main restaurant resides. 1, rue Villedo.(Search the blog for more on this place, which has moved since I wrotee about it).

For ramen, I like the Sapporo Ramen on rue du Faubourg St-Honore, near the Louvre. (There are other branches but they're not as good.)
