I think my boyfriend and I managed to visit every single watch boutique in the whole city during our trip last year… Trying on and admiring watch after watch.
… Somewhere in the 7th arrondissement.
A busy day in Jardin des Tuileries. Even though it was pretty cloudy this day you can still see all the way to Place de la Concorde and Arc de Triomphe.
The meal I had at L’ATELIER de Joël Robuchon is still one of the top three meals in my life. Dish after dish they knocked our socks off. Although I must admit that I voted for another restaurant when my boyfriend and I discussed where we wanted to go. But I can say it now: he was right.
The signature black and red interior is perhaps not my favourite, but when the food arrived, who cared?
The most amazing asparagus soup.
I had two favourites that I still think about from time to time — the asparagus soup and the pigeon with Robuchon’s famous mashed potatoes. We also had a few not so perfect dishes, like the soft-shell crab and a mysterious “egg drink”. But forget about those, I know I have. The dinner was absolutely fantastic and I had an amazing night.
