So off we go to Paris. We booked so late that we are in a new Arrondisement! So this time we are in the 12th where we have never stayed. We are near the Promenade Plantee which was intentional - since COVID is still here and the newest variant Omicron is good at evading the vaccination defenses.
So the good news is- we are trying some new restaurants while in the new location and right off the bat we find one we LOVE! so much that we return later in our stay for a second round of their delicious food! And it is so fun to check out a new neighborhood.
Our first meal in Paris this trip is near our hotel and we picked one very close as it was raining...
The model for NYC Highline - is the Promenade Plantee - which we have enjoyed several times over our years of visiting in Paris
why don't we have these on our street corners? like they do in Paris....
We dine again at A La Fregate
dinner in Paris with Laure & Arno
The town where Laure & Arno live is St Germain and the train stop is right across from the Castle.
after returning late form Laure & Arno we dined in the hotel restaurant - which was surprisingly good.
on our way back to the train we stopped at a fabulous little Lyonnaise restaurant Les Mauvais Garcons. It was so wonderful to have the food of Lyon again- especially the Quenelles!
From here we head back to Brussels for a final couple of days before heading back to the States... or so we thought....
