Although it's been some years since I have visited Paris, these dining spots in NYC, rapelle moi de Paris and are some great spots to get French food.
DISCLAIMER: I am not French or Parisienne, this is from the perspective of a tourist who loves to travel & eat!
They are known for their amazing hot chocolate and pastries but I have found out not a lot of people know of the restaurant in the back of the cafe. The interiors not only shout French decor but so does their seasonal menu. Although one could argue that some brunch items are more American than French, the delicate and sophisticated presentation couldn't be more French. I celebrated both mine and my mom's birthday here last year and it was such a treat.
Their menu does change quite a bit (it's always super creative) but these were my top picks:
We walked into Loulou on a gloomy, rainy Saturday afternoon and the cozy atmosphere here lived up to its name. Although we all somehow ended up ordering the tomato soup and the grilled cheese, it was super delicious! My friends who have been here during Happy Hour hours were raving about their drinks. Overall, this was a very good meal. I hope to return here again when the weather is better.
Hi! My name is Vaishnavi and this is a curation of all things food. I travel a lot and since an early age, much like both my grandmothers, I have enjoyed cooking, baking, exploring dining options, and experimenting with food. In college, I started @foodbyvivarmaa as a creative outlet for all things food related. And since then, friends and family have asked me for recommendations and recipes and I thought why not make a traditional blog? Growing up in India and UAE and now living in NYC I have been privileged to be exposed to a very diverse set of dining experiences. My parents gave us the opportunity to travel all over, which has only further expanded my curiosity to explore more. Although I don't put a label on it, 90% of my diet is vegetarian. In India, cooking and eating food is a community ritual. Most of my favorite memories revolve around having a good meal with those who I love. To continue that tradition, I hope to curate my own community as I travel and continue building my life in different parts of the world & hopefully inspire and give others the same feeling of community brought together by food.
