EF Short Guide on Eating In Paris

Finding good dining places in Paris can be a challenge , and for preggie mum like me. Sit down brasseries can be found almost everywhere – only they serve the same combi of main course. Yes, 25% salad + 25% french fries / fried potatoes + 50% of main course of your choice ( duck confit, burger, steak, veal steak etc). Soon , i started getting sick eating in brasseries ( given i cannot take raw salad and french fries is not something i want to feed baby with for the next 7 days). Thanks to hubby finding the Les Cocottes Place i saw on TV before our trip, to experience casual dining using staub cooking wares, and also referring to the magazine recommended places. We tried one of the resturant and it turned out very well too.
