Dear Parler Paris Reader,
This year I’m heading “home” to New Orleans to be with the family, but most of my Thanksgivings have been spent here in Paris with close friends around my table carving a French roasted turkey with all the “fixin’s.” (No offense to Butterballs, but French turkeys are by far superior — tenderer, juicier, sweeter — and cook in half the time, I think because the meat isn’t as dense, but I wouldn’t know for sure why!).
I am almost always here for Christmas and New Year’s Eve, too — mostly because so many friends love to descend on Paris at this time of year. Obviously, it’s a time when people have vacation, but it’s also such a romantic idea to celebrate the holidays by strolling along the elegantly lit Champs-Elysées or sipping on a spicy “vin chaud” in a corner café.
Every year, readers ask me how the holidays should be spent in Paris — and inevitable I scratch my head for wont to make their stay in the City of Light fulfill their every wish. This year is no different, so I offer you these suggestions, as I would take them for myself.
For a great Thanksgiving meal out, check the FUSAC (France USA Contacts) magazine available free on stands at all English-language locations for restaurants offering a special menu. You may also find several local American organizations offering a Thanksgiving dinner with which you can participate.
“Sam Pepper” Restaurant-Bar not only serves it up, but also will bring you a full traditional Thanksgiving dinner to your door (01.43.80.20.52). If you’re cooking it up at your Paris apartment (didn’t you rent one this time around?), shops like “The Real McCoy” ( open 7 days a week from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., 194 Rue de Grenelle, 7th, Tel: 01.45.56.98.82) and “Thanksgiving” (now taking orders for farm-bred Thanksgiving Turkeys ready to stuff and cook yourself or they can do it for you, 14 Rue Charles V, 4th) will have everything you need, except for maybe the friends to invite — that you’ll have to do on your own.
The Christmas spirit has already hit town and the evidence is everywhere. The department stores are already glowing with their holiday lights (do not miss Galeries Lafayette’s Middle Eastern motif — it’s the third or more year in a row they’ve covered the facade of the building in this outstanding design lighting up all of boulevard Haussmann, the Opéra Garnier and beyond), the grocery stores have boxes of assorted chocolates piled up in every corner for gift-giving and restaurants are starting to advertise their special holiday dinners.
So, if you’re planning to be in Paris for any of the upcoming holidays, put a few of these things on your list of to-do’s:
