Chalet des Iles   Paris Digest from France   11:19   July 23, 2015

So far, Paris is dry and hot this summer. This is good news for sightseeing. But, you may be looking for a cool place to spend the evening. Le Chalet des Iles in Bois de Vincennes at walking distance from Paris Zoo is the right place. Get to Porte Doree metro station on line 8. Walk 15’ alongside Lac Daumesnil. You get to this oasis of trees, flowers and water.



Le Chalet des Iles is a large outdoor restaurant that hardly has any equivalent in Paris. The atmosphere is trendy and relaxed. The food is first class with in particular excellent beef and a fantastic Baba au rhum, a traditional Paris pastry, that can feed four people. Yesterday night, our party of six had a delicious dinner. We paid 250 euros including an excellent bottle of Chinon, a Cabernet wine from the Loire Valley. This is not more than what you pay in most Paris restaurants at night. A unique summer experience in Paris on a dry day. Web site. More top restaurants in Paris.

Great restaurant near Champs Elysees   Paris Digest from France   17:24   May 15, 2015

Come close to the majestuous columns of 1900 Grand Palais in between Champs Elysees and the Seine River. They host the monumental terrace of Minipalais, a beautiful and affordable Paris restaurant, managed by Eric Frechon, a 3 star french cook.



This restaurant terrace is our favorite in Paris. It is so spacious and quiet for Paris that is has no equivalent.



The dining room is also spectacular. Add to it the 29 euro two course set menu, the quality of the food and service. Minipalais is one of our favorite restaurants in Paris. Web site. Locate Minipalais on Paris map. More great restaurants in Paris.
