Lapérouse – Paris, France

Lapérouse – Paris, France

Do a little research on this place and you’ll quickly realize that it has some major history.  Established in 1766 how could it not?!  What we thought were vandalized mirrors in our room turned out in fact to be scratches from the diamonds that the “cocottes” (fashionable prostitutes) would make in order to authenticate the diamonds they got as payment and make sure they weren’t just glass.  All the history aside, the food was great! I’m still thinking about my salad with fresh truffles shaved on top.  I could honestly eat it everyday.

All in all this is a memorable and fun restaurant whether you’re a party of 2 or 12.  Check out their Instagram to see all the notable models and famous people that have dined there.
