Restaurants in Europe

Restaurants in Europe

While I tend to write reviews about Restaurants in the US, Europe holds my culinary heart. There is something about walking along streets rich in history, eating food that is freshly prepared and naturally produced, that beautiful glass of wine, and the tradition of culture. Without fail, every trip I have ever made to any part of Europe has resulted in lifelong friendships, food I cannot forget, and inspiration that is unending. I would like to highlight just a few place I’ve come across that I still remember. Soon I will return and write an in-depth review of each. For more on Art and Another Rare Find in Spain: Barcelona, Lagoa, Paris


Paris, France: Le Fumoir – Brunch is so good. You are situated just a few steps away from the Louvre Museum and the restaurant has this ambience that is very remnant of the 1940’s. Le Fumoir.

Barcelona, Spain: Restaurant 7 Portes – I spent one Valentine’s Day here and the paella was so good, tasted like I was eating a traditional dish passed on for decades. Sabroso! Barcelona is a port city so every type of seafood is fresh from the ocean. Restaurant 7 Portes.

Dublin, Ireland: The Schoolhouse Restaurant Ballsbridge – A blend of French and Modern Irish dishes, this restaurant in part of the Schoolhouse Hotel, a historical (and breathtaking) Bed & Breakfast just a walk away from Dublin’s Grafton Street. This is by far at the top of my list for favorite places. (This is also a remarkable property!) The Schoolhouse Hotel Restaurant Ballsbridge.
