Clown Bar, Paris

Our first visit to the Clown Bar. The location is a bit out of the way near the Cirrus area. The ambiance featuring the Clowns is very intersting as is the food. The food is for those who are adventurous and eat everthing. This is not for your average...

Cafe Constant , Paris

Les 101 de Taillevent, Paris

I ventured over to the First District and Enjoyed a nice lunch and some fine wines at Les 101 de Taillevent. This is a casual wine bar/bistro by the owner of the landmark Talievent. It retained 3 Michelin stars for 34 years but finally was demoted to two stars...

Le Reminet, Paris

Lori found this wonderful place a few years ago. Unfortunately it got lost in the backlog of photos to be blogged. The food was wonderful and its great for a romantic evening.  The presentations and food were executed with the French flair you’d expect at a high end establishment...
