During the summer of 2011, we enjoyed a whirlwind “highlights” tour of Paris, staying there for three nights on our way to Rome for the balance of our travels. Food is always an essential part of our travel experience, and we tried sampling a variety of offerings in Paris during our limited stay. One restaurant topped my entire family’s “favorites” list, though: La Jacobine.
Our hotel was on the Left Bank, in the Latin Quarter area of the 6th arrondissement. The neighborhood was a comfortable fit for us with a relaxed vibe.
Our boys have always enjoyed escargot, so of course, we had to have the classic French appetizer while in Paris. La Jacobine served it up perfectly, and we enjoyed the company of a Scottish couple at the table next to us as we shared travel stories and adventures from home.
The restaurant was tucked down a side alley, with a warm and inviting atmosphere that was not forced or pretentious. The service was friendly, and we did not feel rushed as we enjoyed a dinner of simple but savory fare. La Jacobine was the perfect spot to unwind after a busy day of sight-seeing.
