Brunch appears to be big in France, too. We tried to eat at Le Vin Qui Danse, a cozy restaurant with an emphasis on wine, during the weekend and was told the restaurant was booked up! Thankfully, we were able to return for dinner later that week with reservation in hand.
My sister ordered scallops and as I recall, they were lovely.
I ordered the duck, which is one of my favorite proteins,. And of course, it was paired nicely with fruit (the entire clementine was interesting).
A chocolate trio of a brownie (or whatever the French equivalent would be called) and a couple ice cream type desserts.
Tiramisu! Intense and really good.
We also enjoyed a bottle of red wine, which gave us the warmth to brave the cold walk home. This dinner was one of our favorite meals in Paris and I hope to eat there again next time I'm in the city.
A few days later, it was Christmas Day and we had a fantastic dinner of items picked up at the neighborhood cheese, sausage and seafood shops. And wine, of course.
We bought this pre-cooked shrimp at the seafood supplier down the street and oh my God, it was so sweet and amazing. Later that day, I was daydreaming about the shrimp and to this day, I still think of it. Seriously.
A beautiful plate that is signature France: cheese, sausage and bread. Just perfection with wine.
An unusual Christmas Day dinner that I will always remember. Especially that shrimp.
