Frenchie and Spring was two restaurants I have wanted to try each time i have been in Paris. Not so easy although keep in mind that Frenchie has a wine bar that you can stop by and see if you can snag a seat. Gabe and Gina were in Paris a few months ago (the owners of Joseph Leonard, Jeffries and Fedora) and had been to both. Gabe got me the reservation at Frenchie and we were psyched.
We met Emily and her friend Jane at Bar Hemingway. The place is so small and we didn't get in so instead went to the outdoor bar. The Ritz is huge and bars are abundant. I had a spritz. White wine, campari and selter. Nice start.
Then we walked over to check out Emily and Jane's apartment which is the perfect Parisian haunt. Small but hits the high notes. Kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, wi-fi and washer/dryer. It is in the 2nd which is a very cute neighborhood.
We walked over to Frenchie which is down a carless street. Super cute. The restaurant is on one side of the street and their wine bar is on the other. It is a price fixed meal. Two options for all three servings. I started with the sweetbreads. Amazing.
We walked home through the area of the 2nd which is like Rue de Bucci which is loaded with restaurants and shops. Very cute. Long night. My feet are killing me!
