Tuesday we started at a boulangerie then went to the Museum Orsay. Dave’s highlight was seeeing the 4 Seurat paintings and more Picasso and Monet. They also had a marble Gates of Hell to help to prime us for the Rodin Museum.
After a quick café stop, we went there where the Thinker and many statues were amazing.
This could have also been called “No Reservations” as dinner was a challenge. Our first planned restaurant was closed on Tuesdays and the next 3 were all booked. We ended up at Rotisserie de Beaujoulais whereh we both started with the Foie Gras – D had cooked (his favorite dish all trip) and A had the terrine. We both ordered “chicken” dishes, A’s regular rotisserie with wonderful mashed potatoes. D’s was in a red wine sauce , whic was heavy gravy with mushrooms and potatoes (coq au vin). A thinks it was rooster, but it tasted like chicken.
We met the house cat “Beaujoulais” that found a friend in A and sat with her most of the meal. It was nice to have a kitty friend.
Later we then went to the happening Spanish district for a drink at a café. Dave has decided everyone in Paris smokes, particularly those that frequent cafés. Allison had a night cap banana and chocolate crepe, “the best crepe” she has ever had. The made it fresh in front of us.
