Rue de Seine

One of my favorite streets thus far in my foodie adventures in Paris is Rue de Seine in the Saint Germain des Prés area in the 6th arrondissement.

It is home to my favorite Spanish restaurant/shop/café, Da Rosa, where one can enjoy a glass of wine and melt-in-your-mouth Jamon Bellota, or take some [cher mais delicieux] canned moules a emporter. Just across the street is Grom, the italian gelato chain where the speedy English-speaking scooper handed me my tangy, thirst-quenching sorbet au citron. Perhaps I’ve been in the [pastry] kitchen too long but I love the movement in this shape. Doesn’t it remind you of George Washington’s wig?

The street, and neighboring streets as well, is lined with patio dining, art galleries, boulangeries, wine bars and cute boutiques. It is also a stone’s throw from Gérard Mulot and Ladurée. Wandered too far? Just follow your nose and you’ll find yourself in front of the huge skewers of roast chicken next door to Grom.
