My existence is organized through a series of spreadsheets. Even when I go on vacation, I have a very detailed itinerary, one which I've learned is not easily followed while in a foreign country. Its hard to stick to the minute, when you're walking in circles, falling into a crowd of skateboarding fanatics, or dodging rugby lunatics when the game lets out. Let's put it this way, the language barrier was the least of our problems, but overall we had a great time and ate well on most occasions.
Thursday:Annie is completely wacked out because of our RedEye Flight... we have to eat at 10 restaurants to satiate her ravenous hunger... ok just 2:
Pomme Pain - Sandwhiches, pasta, pastries, DECENT
Cafe Galliera - overpriced, rude service, Annie had ham and cheese w/ a side of lettuce (supposed to be a chef salad), EH-
Frenchie - no record of dinner reservation, completely booked, FAILURE
Restaurant Itineraires - forgot about reservation, SUCCESS
Friday:Les Bouquinistes - reservation confirmed, SUCCESS
L' Violin de Ingres - reservation cancelled and opted for Les Cocottes, SUCCESS!
Saturday:Lunch at La Flotille at Versaille, BIG MISTAKE
Le Chateaubriand - stood up for Les Cocottes, FAILURE/SUCCESS
Sunday:Lunch at Yam'tcha - reservations were required. Thanks NYTIMES!!!! NOT MY FAILURE.
La Bague de Kenza - where you end up when Yam'tcha denies you. EH+
L'Atelier Joel Rubochon - did not confirm, too expensive, opted for Middle Eastern, EH
Monday:Lunch at Les Cocottes, yes 3rd time! SUCCESS!
Ze Kitchen Galerie, too full from lunch, opted for Dalayrac Cafe, BIGGER MISTAKE
Too bad the Crepe place we stopped at first turned us away.
Stay Tuned for the details and descriptions of all the worthy Parisian fare.
