A Few More Paris Bites



Here are a few more Paris bites before we fly back home to New Jersey tonight.

We ate at a great restaurant last night called Bistroy Les Papilles located in the 6th arrondisement.
The word Papilles translates to "taste buds".



The concept is that you dine inside the beautiful wine store/gourmet food shop.



You choose the bottle of wine from the shelf, and they offer a daily market menu.



It is a hard reservation to get, but they are open for lunch and you can take a chance and walk in, you may get lucky.

Last night's offerings was a cabbage soup with croutons, thyme & creme fraiche. AMAZING.



A magret de canard (duck breast) with seasonal legumes served in a copper pot.



Next course was a St. Nectaire cheese w/ a fig compote.....then dessert.



If you visit Paris, I hope you can try this special place. Bertrand the owner is the nicest guy (and married to a Jersey girl too, so how bad can he be?!).



Enjoy the rest of the photo tour and see you soon with some new recipes!


A proper Nicoise Salade.




The cutest kids I have ever seen.







I hope you have enjoyed the trip thru my eyes......thanks for coming along!
