This was the one place In Paris that I truly believed represented France exactly how I pictured it to be. While everywhere else reminded me of any other city in America (just centuries older), this place represented the homey, beautiful Parisian sight that I envisioned it to be. It was mostly clear of tourists and that made me so much happier to be there. The streets were narrow, the tables were beautiful, and the lifestyle was slow. It was a huge hill to climb up to get to, but the view point and experience of it definitely made it worth going there.
My favorite part about it all was the food. It was delicious and fresh. The salmon just melted in my tongue and the pasta tasted nothing like the Olive Garden pasta I was used to. This was the France I had in my head. The chocolate lava cake dessert was the most delicious lava cake I had ever had. The owner of the restaurant didn’t know any english and that was how I knew we hit the authentic hot spot. Overall, if there is one spot in Paris you have to visit, then Montmarte should be it.
