During a visit to Paris in March, I stayed once again in my favorite neighborhood in Paris, the area surrounding the Saint Germain des Prés church in the 6th arrondissement. The Hotel d'Angleterre, at 44 Rue Jacob, is in a wonderful location and I have enjoyed two stays there. The people at the front desk are helpful with directions, dinner reservations, and answering transportation questions. Yes, they all speak English! It is a quick walk to sites such as the Louvre, Notre Dame, and the Luxembourg Gardens. There is great shopping-high end designers and more low key options-close by.
While it is fun to visit the famous cafes of the neighborhood, like Cafe de Flore or Brasserie Lipp, for an afternoon glass of wine, you may not want to have dinner there. I want to tell you about four restaurants that I especially loved during my most recent trip. One note, I am a vegetarian, but the people I was traveling with are not! So the restaurants below all had vegetarian, meat, and seafood options that suited our whole group.
