Quick trip to Paris

We took a quick 2 night trip up to Paris this week.  We went up to see our favorite artist, Paul Weller.  We have seen him about 11-12 times, but never in Paris.  We drove up on Wednesday and saw the concert that night.  It was a really small venue in the 11th and we had a great time.  We had dinner at our friends restaurant Les Funambules, which is also in the 11th.  We first had dinner there 4 years ago and we sat next to the owners (not knowing they were the owners).  Every time we visit Paris we eat at Les Funambules.

This trip however, we also ate at their NEW restaurant in the 7th called Les Parisiennes.  It's located at 17 avenue de la Motte-Picquet, actually 1 block from the apartment we stay at.  It was fantastic!  One of the best dinners I have had in a long time.  The menu has many choices, the prices are reasonable and the decor beautiful.

I started with gazpacho, which was so so good and Bruce had burrata with tomatoes.  Then for dinner I had steak tartar (my favorite) and Bruce had vegetable risotto.  Dessert was a hot fudge sundae (they also have strawberry too).  Of course we had a lovely pinot with dinner.

They are open for breakfast and serve eggs, bacon, croissant, orange juice and coffee.  Of course we had to go on Friday morning before we left Paris.  We love our breakfasts.  They are also open for lunch too.

If you live in Paris or are visiting Paris, I highly recommend you visit Les Parisiennes. You won't be disappointed.  We can't wait to go back.

How wonderful just to have a quick trip to Paris.. I have seen Paul Weller once, we were lucky enough to have VIP tickets and we saw him in Hyde Park. My sister-in-law worked for his record label ..and now works for Independiente Records,,

Lucky you! We have been fortunate enough to meet him twice. Second time just my husband and I with him on the balcony outside one of the venues in Los Angeles (he plays very small clubs in LA). Talked for about 20 minutes. Very cool.
