The Foodie's Travel Bucket List
A foodie’s dream day, as conjured up by Daniel Rose, chef-owner at Spring restaurant.
Breakfast: Head to the crêpe stand at the Ave. Président Wilson market (Wednesday and Saturday) for buckwheat galettes with andouillette, ham, cheese, and egg. Order a big bottle of cider—it’s the only way you can drink in the morning without someone looking at you funny.
Coffee: I love the informal and busy vibe at the Café du Marché (33-1/47-05-51-27) on Rue Cler, my old stomping ground when I was a student.
Lunch: Arpège ($$$$) always has a great selection of vegetables; the ravioli with fresh peas is a standout, as is the lobster.
Snack: A loaf of yeasty pain des amis from Du Pain et Des Idées. Eat it on the bridge over the Canal St.-Martin.
Dinner: Order the lamb shoulder at Au Passage (33-1/43-55-07-52; $), in the 11th Arrondissement, co-owned by Spring’s former sommelier.
