- Introduction: Paris for the Holidays, Saying Goodbye to American’s Old Business Class, and a Suite at the Park Hyatt Vendome
- American First Class Lounge Chicago O’Hare and Business Class, Chicago – Paris

Paris is a fantastic city to experience food. But it’s also a city with a lot of truly mediocre (or worse) food, catering to tourists in large volumes. Those places are often near where tourists congregate – the top spots to visit. You have a large number of people, the rents are high, restaurants cater to both volume and lowest common denominator tastes.
So if you want to eat well, and conveniently, near tourist spots it takes a little bit of work. Since I found a couple on this trip, I thought it was worth passing them along.
Here are some of the best places to eat near Eiffel Tower and Picasso Museum! The Just-Reopened Picasso Museum (Musée Picasso)
Around the corner from the Picasso museum is Breizh Cafe, a great place for crepes.
We had a short wait to be seated, maybe 10 minutes, and were standing beside the open kitchen as crepes were coming out.
We shared a savory crepe and a sweet one, and enjoyed them both immensely.
The Eiffel Tower
Truly, this is probably the toughest place in Paris to find good food nearby.
The suggestion, a pretty good and reasonably priced, restaurant is Le Cocottes, one of a handful of restaurants owned by the same folks nearby.
There was no wait for a couple of seats at the counter when we arrived at lunch time.
The food was classic French and delicious.
