We’ve been disappointed here and there again in April, but let’s put the past behind us and have a look at the things we loved.

• #1 TEMPERO, Paris: it’s full of temper in here | Our article •

 Tempero is probably our best food find since the beginning of the year. The oeuf parfait is gently swimming in a delicate watercress veloute. And what to say about these stunning vegetable ravioli? Everything else we had that night was close to perfection, it’s not a pretentious cuisine, it’s simple but it works well. After that dinner, we decided to reconsider our plans for the future and are now thinking living in the 13th arrondissement.

• #2 TREIZE-A BAKER’S DOZEN: best American cakes in Paris | Our article •

This may well be the next place to be when you’re looking for a good coffeeshop in the left bank in Paris. The owner, Laurel, is not only a good tempered person, she’s also a great cook. Her brownie is a hit, it’s sticky as hell and the chocolate flavors are very intense; it’s very different from the brownies we’re used to in France but we loved it. The carrot cake is so far the best we had in Paris (yes even better than the one we had at Sugarplum Cake Shop). So next time you’re in the hood, don’t think twice and stop by Treize.

• #3 Bistrot JADIS: it’s not only about tradition | Our article •

After a pleasant stroll in the 15th arrondissement, we stumbled on an uber-satisfying bistro called Jadis. The chef has been highly praised by the press a few years ago but he kept his feet on the ground. The pork is perfectly grilled and it came with a generous sauce, thick enough to make a nice glittering coating. My friend had a great dish of scallops, turnips and young onions, which happened to be a nice combination.
