We woke up bright and early on our last full day in Paris. I was super excited since we were heading to the Palace of Versailles. Alas, the French workers' strike changed our plans. There were no trains running to Versailles that day and I was very disappointed. So close, yet so far away...
Since we had to change our plans last minute, Mr. J and I decided to do a leisurely stroll around some shops and sights. We spent some time looking for souvenirs as well.
Tour Montparnasse. We weren't too impressed by the neighborhood right around the building and didn't bother to go to the top.
We did, however, head to a restaurant called La Coupole. It's a fav hangout by some of literary history's big names, like Hemingway. I had their chocolat chaud and my heart was in love.
Anyway, for our last dinner in Paris we went to a place called Le Bistro St-Ferdinand (275 Boulevard Pereire). It was right around the corner from our hotel. We really lucked out since we were seated right before the big crowds arrived. It's supposed to be one of the harder reservations to land in the area (who knew?).
I only remembered to capture the top of the menu before we delved right into the food and wine that night. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend the restaurant!
Jusqu'à la prochaine fois :-)
no fireworks for us this year
