Jenni’s Recommendations: Paris

26 Mar

Jenni, one of my college roommates, has been living in Paris for–wow–maybe 7 years now? Strange to think it’s been that long. I just got back in touch with her when I realized she was still there. The last time I talked to her, I was still a vegetarian. Here are her recommendations:

As far as restaurants go, being veg in Paris is tough. Here are a couple that we like that have veg fare:

L’Homme Bleu
55 bis, rue Jean-Pierre Timbaud 75011
Tel: 01-48-07-05-63
metro: Parmentier
Morroccan restaurant, great tagines and couscous

Creperie des Arts
27 rue Saint-Andre-des-Arts
75006 Paris
metro: St Michel
Tel: 01 43 26 15 68
Crepes in a cute restaurant near St Germain

Queen Ann
5 rue Simon Le Franc 75004 PARIS
metro: Rambuteau
01 42 78 00 07
Tiny tea room, great quiches run by a guy couple

As far as shops go, try rue Etienne Marcel metro: Etienne Marcel. Galeries Lafayette is a beautiful department store, metro: Havre Caumartin/Opera. In the Marais metro: St Paul, rue des Francs Bourgeois is great boutique shopping.

There are fun bars on rue Oberkampf, similar spirit to the Mission. Metro: Parmentier

    I eat mainly raw organic food and juice religiously. Where in Paris can I get fresh juice?
