58 Tour Eiffel Restaurant Review

Monday, December 15, 2014

Eiffel Tower at Night, Eiffel Tower
58 Tour Eiffel is a brasserie-style restaurant located on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower

There are certain restaurants in which you need to manage your expectations. Meaning, don't walk in hoping to be wowed, overwhelmed or stunned. The result, I have found, is a better dining experience overall. 58 Tour Eiffel, the brasserie-style restaurant, on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower is one of those restaurants.

Why We Decided To Eat At 58 Tour Eiffel

We have never climbed any of the platforms at the Eiffel Tower because, candidly, we didn't want to fight the tourists or wait in line. On our most recent trip, spanning November and December 2014, we decided to go for it but still didn't want to do the lines so we opted to eat at one of the restaurants, which also grants you access to the Eiffel Tower. We didn't want to do the over-the-top foodie destination that is Jules Verne (especially with a three-year old) nor did we want to do the buffet. Instead we tried 58 Tour Eiffel, knowing full well it would probably be mediocre food and poor service.

We were right about the food. The service? Not that bad.

Crossbody Bags, Purse to Carry While Exploring another city.

What kind of purse do you like to carry when you travel? A big kitchen-sink carryall or something more compact? I prefer the latter. I think a smart crossbody bag that allows you to explore a new city while carrying all your essentials and doesn't bog you down is the way to go. While I was in Paris, I carried my GiGi New York Madison Crossbody bag all over the city (and beyond) and fell in love with this stylish purse even further.

It held my makeup, money, baby wipes and more in style.

Watch the video below to see why it's a perfect, timeless bag for jetsetting or running errands in your own city.

Candidly, I love everything about the Long Island-based company. They have great men's gifts, a slew of stylish purses (this saddle bag - LOVE) as well as corporate gifts that are all made in the USA .

Looking for something super luxe for the most discerning loved one on your Christmas list? A $98,000 Hermès Birkin might do. Not a Birkin babe? How about a crocodile Hermès Constance bag for a mere $49,500?

You can buy those (and more) at Neiman Marcus. But hurry, because they're going quickly.

Jaw. Dropping.
