Experience a Parisian Picnic.

Enjoy a delicious picnic prepared using the best ingredients Paris has to offer, hand-selected and prepared for you by a local chef with years of experience shopping local Paris markets. A Paris picnic is a unique experience that is convenient, delicious, and showcases unique products of France for a true Parisian experience. Instead of running to the nearest crepe stand after a tour or eating an overpriced cafe meal, you can have a market fresh, delicious picnic waiting for you at our office located right next to the Eiffel Tower on Avenue de la Bourdonnais. You work up quite an appetite running around Paris, so treat yourself to a market fresh, delicious picnic with seasonal ingredients and quality French wine.

Enjoy these tasty snacks along with market-fresh salads, quiches or tarts, sweet treats, and cap it off with a bottle of red French wine. You may choose a white wine or rosé during check-out if you prefer to do so. Spend as long as you'd like relaxing on the blanket, sipping wine and soaking in the beauty of Paris, as everything provided is disposable or recyclable. Included in your bag will be everything you need to enjoy a Parisian picnic at one of the many parks or river banks in Paris, and we are happy to offer advice on the best places to enjoy your picnic.

We truly believe having a picnic while watching the world go by and taking in the sights of Paris is the best way to experience our magical city. Bon Appetit!

Salads are more than just lettuce and tomatoes: for example, asparagus with fava beans and a poppy seed vinaigrette, or farro with balsamic fig dressing, Lyonnaise potato salad, or even melon gazpacho. Quiche are also baked with seasonal ingredients: ratatouille and ham, traditional quiche lorraine or tomato and chevre, for example. And for dessert: sweet rhubarb tartlettes, tart tatin, or raspberry panna cotta. As for wine, we work with a local distributor and all wines are sourced from small producers around France with unique qualities and nice characteristics.
