“Paris is always a good idea” -Audrey Hepburn

It was the start of our marriage and beginning of our travels. My first international vacation and a place that will always remain dear to my heart.

Where we stayed: Hotel Britannique

For our week long honeymoon we stayed at Hotel Britannique. We found it to be in a great location for us. It is close to the metro and a short walking distance to the Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral.

Our Itinerary:

  • Eiffel Tower

What we ate:

Le Relais De l’Entrecote is a tradition in the Clark family. When Andrew’s family lived in Geneva, Switzerland during his childhood, this restaurant quickly became a family favorite. The only thing they serve is steak frites.

Paris is the original location. The restaurant does not take reservations and there is always a line outside before they open at 7:00pm. They seat first come first serve and once the restaurant is full, you stand outside waiting. Trust me. It is worth the wait.

Everyone’s meal comes with a small salad, baguette bread, entrecote steak cooked to your liking, and frites. But let’s talk about the best part, the sauce. It’s a secret recipe that will have you wanting to recreate it. There is nothing else like it.

Just when you think there is no way this can get any better, they serve you seconds. Thats right, you will not leave here hungry.

After that, we didn’t plan out other restaurants to eat and instead ate at the numerous sidewalk cafes. My favorite dishes were croque madame, quiche lorraine, and onion soup.

Last, but certainly not least, we loved the crepes – banana nutella is our favorite.
