Brunch at Candelaria [Paris]

Hey, remember those photo assignments I went to Paris for? This was the first — one of my favorite places in my old neighborhood, the Marais.

By now, lots of you know that Candelaria is the best place in Paris to get your Mexican food fix along with your artisan cocktail fix. But did you know that it’s also the best place to nurse your Sunday morning hangover with delicious huevos rancheros and hair of the dog drinks? Even better: it’s usually just tacos in the front and cocktails in the back, but during brunch you get to dine and drink in that awesome speakeasy back room.

Mexican food has long been my morning-after-party craving, so this seems a natural and perfect combination to me. I wasn’t hung over when I showed up a couple of weeks ago for the first of many shoots during my week in Paris, but I was coming off of nearly twenty-four hours of plane and and airport time, so close enough?

      Hah! Not as much lately, but next time you visit California you’ll have a full itinerary. :)

        eh…don’t do that. I’m still carrying the extra pounds I’d gained from last summer in Provence. Pfffft…. I don’t mind turning 40. It’s the damn metabolic rate that’s grinding to a halt that I dislike.
