Oh Hai. It’s me. Rip Van Winkle who has come to life a bit after thousands of years to give you two posts in a row.

I don’t have any better quality pictures than this but this is my favourite restaurant in Paris (maybe) (I think probably). If you are totes over Hotel du Nord, just cross the canal and come here.

I think this is something like goats cheese ravioli in beef broth and some kind of pate with brioche toast. Other memorable meals were a while ago so I can’t remember all the gorey details but I do remember the best dessert of my life, and Goon’s and I think probably Anthony’s as well.

ME: Grapefruit segments in syrup with lime sorbet and mint

ANTHONY: Three mini creme brulée – one vanilla, one hazelnut and one pistachio.
Hang on it is coming back to me – for a started he had asparagus wrapped in a fine fine layer of pastry and then we both had cod and leek for our main dish.

GOON: Le Pain Perdu with caramalised brioche, caramel sauce and marshmallow icecream.

At Les Fines Gueules restaurant in Paris after a heritage tomato salad (They are very trendy these days aren’t they. They should just get better tomatoes in the shops so we can have these very day) and a Pave Steak and potato I could only manage to stuff down half of this gigantic Paris Brest.

These are made with choux pastry and praline filling and were invented for a snack in the 1800’s for a Parisian bike race.

This restaurant was very nice, great service etc. The menu was very high standard comfort food – meat, potatoes etc. Was nice to sit at the bar and talk to the sommelier about what glass of wine to have next. If you are staying near and you need something to eat on a Sunday night, not a bad option. Don’t go out of your way though.
