Paris: Berthillon — The Best Ice Cream in Paris (4ème arrondissement)

Before leaving for our honeymoon in Paris, I asked my friends on Facebook for any Parisian suggestions.

One of the things Mr. KitchenOperas and I like to do when we travel is pour over the recommendations in the Lonely Planet guide to wherever we’re visiting.  In the Lonely Planet Paris City Guide, I found a brief blurb on an absinthe bar: La Fée Verte at 108 rue de la Roquette, in the […]

Paris: Fuxia (6ème arrondissement)

One of our favourite finds in Paris was an Italian restaurant, Fuxia, across the road from the Jardin de Luxembourg (in the 6th arrondissement). While we were in Paris, we took on the role of flâneurs (those who stroll and loaf).  We walked everywhere and had grand adventures throughout Paris.  In a heatwave.  We had […]

Honeymoon in Paris

Mr. KitchenOperas and I were so very lucky to be able to spend our honeymoon in Paris — and it was definitely a trip that we will never forget. We walked everywhere, and ate everything. And I’ve got a few special blog posts coming up to tell you all about our adventures. But in the […]
