Paris - Day 33

Just couple more days till London. Our plan was to load up on food items to bring home. We went to gourmet Lafayette. We chose this place instead of Le Bon Marche because they had lots of buy one get one free deals. We spent quite some time picking out food items. We also went to Longchamp to get a bag for a friend. Everywhere in Paris, women are carrying the Longchamp Le Pliage bag. We started a game where we would punch each other every time we saw a Longchamp bag. We were able to get the VAT refund on the items we got, saves around 15%. We carried everything back in our suitcases. We also wanted a saute pan, but figured out we couldn't get one because once we put all our stuff in our 4 small suitcases, there was no more room for anything else. This included 6 wine bottles.
Got lunch at the grocery store, sandwiches and salad.
Blood sausage.
For dinner we went to Benoit. This place has a Michelin star, but I didn't think it was that great for being a Michelin star place.

This was an extremely overpriced salad. I had better salads at other restaurants that were cheaper.
The rest of the dishes were good.
