|Paris at Sunset|
|Welcome to Paris|
Our first dinner was on 2 blocks away at Au Petit Riche a traditional french bistro that seemed to cater to businessmen and local area families. You walk in to a small bar that is also a shell fish prep and serving station. We meandered back to our table navigating through narrow passes often running in to servers, we finally came into a bigger room with lots of red valour, leather and brass. This restaurant opened in 1854 and has not seemed to lose any of it's tradition and charm for the last 160 years. I had the Roast Veal Chop with Potatoes which was cooked perfectly and came with a very nice sauce. After going to cooking school and having several great meals, french cooking is very much about the sauce. Au Petit Riche was a great recommendation from the staff at the Ambassador Hotel and the perfect way to start our trip. The prices are reasonable and the food and drink quality is very good.

but is is among the tastiest I have ever had and it coming and coming. I was not looking forward to the bill because we were drinking wine, eating Boeuf and crunching fries. To my surprise it was only $60 for the two of us what a good deal! The rest of the day we continued to walk around the Champs-Elysee and enjoy the holiday festivities with the throngs of Parisian families.

|Odette La Choux|
From there we headed down the hill to grab our dessert and finish our tour. We had our dessert at Odette which is down near Notre Dame. Their specialty is Le Choux which is a small bite sized flavored creme puff. These have now take the place of the Macaroon for me.
