Wow, John, an 8.0 for an oyster joint? Now, I need to book my next flight! And, if I can't get in, I'm knocking on your door for bulots. Happy holidays!
At first, seeing the headline, I wondered where, exactly, I'd find the "28e". The suburbs? Lyon? Queens? Then, I realized...typo.
Boulud, I think you intended to say. One of Daniel Boulud's flagships.
That menu board is precisely what I imagine heaven to contain.
Please keep doing this until at least 103.
I've always heard about a vineyard in Paris. So neat that you can purchase it at a restaurant in Paris. Cinsault? Not my favorite grape, but I guess conditions dictate the variety. Cheers!
Welcome back, John! Hope you are healed and feeling better. Highly recommend you read Bruni's op-ed in today's Times. He nails it. I feel different about the dining experience now than I did ten years ago, and appreciate you providing insight into issues of ambiance, including noise and lighting, in Paris restaurants.
John: We are missing your new reviews of restaurants. Hope all is well with you and you are just dieting.
Ar Mor=Breton for la mer (the sea). A few years ago, the name of the department in Brittany known as Cotes de Nord changed its name to Cotes d'Armor. Was unable to book a table at Le Vent d'Armor during our visit in September, as it has gotten incredible press. Certainly plan to visit next time.
Menu in English...why?
