Travel notes: Paris

More spots around Paris:


Le Beaupré brasserie, av. de Suffren, near the Eiffel Tower: adequate bistro, with overfriendly staff a bit too ready to try English, German, Italian, etc. on foreign-looking visitors. Thanks, but we do speak French.
Chez Paul, Rue de Charonne, 11e.: Excellent and very traditional French bistro – with one (1) vegetarian option on a huge menu. Tom tried snails and steak tartare.


Galerie Kara, 24 Rue St. Louis en l’Isle: Lovely jewellers in the swish Île St. Louis, with some great necklaces. Email galeriekara at hotmail dot com.
