Comfort food the Parisien way
Exhausted after a full day of traversing up and down city streets in search of chocolate and pastries and feeling like we've been awake for over 24 hours, we retired back to the hotel to refresh and figure out what to do and where to go for dinner. We didn't expect to have a fancy dinner as the concierge at the hotel warned us that getting a reservation to anything with a Michelin Star was next to impossible right now, especially since most of them were closed on Saturdays and Sundays anyway. Thus began our search through all our books and papers - the Michelin Red Guide for Paris (which was completely in French, we couldn't find an English version of it and neither of us could speak let alone read it), the Michelin Green Guide (an English version, but very little selection), a tourist magazine from the concierge, and printouts from Chez Pim, C&Z, and David Lebovitz.
