A few weeks ago, I was back in Paris for work. I absolutely adore being in my favorite city. I didn’t get a chance to explore, but I still dreamed. Dreamed of the restaurants and delicious Paris food I missed out on instead. When I visited this past June, my friend Sara took me to some incredible new places that I highly recommend trying.
Clown Bar is a popular restaurant right now, and Sara and I completely lucked out by getting an early reservation one night. Talk about mom life.
In October of last year, the Eater.com called Clown Bar the “most thrilling restaurant in Paris”. I have to say I absolutely agree with the sentiment, especially as it related to the circus themed decor and the style of the food. As per usual in popular Paris restaurants, servings are small, but made to perfection. They offered interesting combinations of flavors and delightful presentation. To top it off, everyone that worked there was incredibly nice.
Paperboy is right down the street from Sara’s apartment. We had a quiet and beautiful brunch on our last Sunday together at this great restaurant.
Their items are simple but astonishing. They provided a tray of 3 dips for our bread – homemade peanut butter, butter and caramel. It was to die for. I could’ve sat there eating the caramel all day, but I also had a delicious meal to enjoy. The best part was that it was so reasonably priced. To date, I believe Paperboy offers one of the best brunches in all of Paris.
Paris always has another amazing restaurant to offer, and I will continue to dream of (and drool for) the Paris food. At least until the next time I visit….
