It’s Springtime! And what better time to book a table at the Restaurant Spring in Paris?

I’m sure you’ve heard of this chic bistro because the American Chef, Daniel Rose, has been featured in just about every foodie magazine including Gourmet.

Img 2358-1What really makes his restaurant special (besides the fact that he’s an American Chef in Paris) is that he cooks right in front of you, just for you.

He goes every morning to the farmer’s market and picks out only the freshest ingredients and then plans a three course meal only for the people that have reserved for the evening. So you know that everything is top quality and truly seasonal.

No use showing up at the door unannounced. Because first of all, there probably won’t be a table available. And secondly he only prepares food for the customers that have called. So book your table at least a month in advance.

And what a beautiful and creative meal it is! Chef Rose brings his American know-how to French cuisine with style. Check out his blog for menu updates, recipes, private cooking classes, and even live TV footage from the kitchen.

Unfortunately for me, I don’t get the opportunity to eat at his restaurant often because when he’s cooking I’m cooking too. That’s the breaks for cooks in Paris – we all have the same days off. But, I did get the opportunity to meet him and taste his food this last Fall. I only wish I got around to posting my experience earlier.
