During her time in the City of Light, she chronicled the euphoric highs and the laughable lows of ex-pat life on her blog, A Moveable Beast. Though she's now based in New York, she travels frequently to Montreal and Brazil, and she'll use just about any excuse to jet to Paris ("I ran out of fleur de sel").

Hi Sangeeta, Thanks for correcting us! Please do let us know if you think of the restaurant in the 11th, it sounds delicious!

This place looks wonderful. And makes me want to go back to Paris soon so badly!

Oh my goodness I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to have found this blog! I am off to Paris in a few weeks (from New Zealand) and will be staying for a couple of weeks for a change. It will be so fantastic to have some local knowledge of what’s good! I find that usually when I am in Paris I just end up at the same touristy places and it gets a little bit old sometimes.

Every one of the posts on this blog has me dreaming of the day I can return to Europe! Thank you for pulling me out of the stress and strain of my current circumstances and giving me something beautiful to distract me from my worries! 🙂

I had a delicious dinner here recently and can’t wait to return.

I’d rather spend a slow three-hour dinner in Paris than anywhere else in the world.

Looks like a great place – I love places where you can slow down!
