On a recent trip to
Paris, my girlfriends and I decided to
try out Le Florimond, not far from the .
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. Eiffel Tower

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.
