Paris, France - Le Florimond

On a recent trip to Paris, my girlfriends and I decided to try out Le Florimond, not far from the Eiffel Tower. This restaurant always comes highly recommended from both guidebooks and foodies alike, and is a cosy little neighborhood spot that offers authentic French specialities with no English menus in sight. Each day there are specials added to the menu and presented on a chalkboard at your table.
Ravioles de homard, brunoise de légumes: Lobster Ravioli
Tempura de betteraves maraîchères, achards de légumes d’automne au curcuma: Beet salad
Terrine de jarret de veau au citron confit: veal terrine with lime
Cod in a potato crust with carrot puree
Confit de cuisse de canard de Corrèze, pommes de terre miettes:
Crispy dug leg with roasted potatoes
Chou farci, (recette de ma grand-mère): Stuffed cabbage from grandmother's recipe
Fish with crab topping
Everything we tried was simply delicious, and the host, Laurent, went out of his way to translate the entire menu for us. We were far too full to order sweets, but you must get the dessert sampler here, it looked amazing! Le Florimond really is a charming little French bistro and worthy of a visit on your next trip to Paris.
