Les Fines Gueules…and a carnival

Fred and I met our friends for dinner last night.  They are staying here for a month.  The boys were on their own and went to a place for tacos that Emily highly recommended.  We went to Les Fines Gueules, a restaurant that we were going to try out last time we were in Paris.  So glad we finally got there.

Before dinner, we met Emily at Bar Hemingway.  Ridiculously over-priced drinks in a very cool setting but honestly so glad we went.  We had the Serendipity.  Delicious start to the evening. 

Avacavo crab
The menu is the perfect size with many options.  Well priced too.  This is the avacado with crab meat.  I love the presentation. 

Tomatoes cheese
Sliced heirloom tomatoes with olive oil.

Burratta proscui
Soft burrato with pieces of prosciutto.  Each of these were delicious and we literally wiped our plates clean.

Monkfish and mushroms
For our main courses we all got something different.  This is a roasted monk fish with mushrooms.

Lotts with vegetables
Lotte with the vegetables of the season.

Pork with white beans
Braised pork with white beans.  This was unbelievable.  The taste was amazing.

I opted for the steak tartare.  It was amazing.  Thin sliced pieces of steak with a light dressing with perfectly cooked yukon gold potatoes and a nice salad of fresh greens. 

For dessert we split everything.  A cheese platter.

Paris Brest ( a classic parisian dish ) piped with a hazelnut/chocolate cream

Dessert four times
A mixture of orange cake, chocolate saute, espresso and creme brulle

After we left, we met Josh and Max at the circus that is set up inside the Tuilleries.  It was a blast. 

Fred and Max took a spin on the bumper cars.

Guns josh and max
Josh and Max took their try at shooting down a variety of things. 

I even gave it a whirl.

They finally won the tin can came and came home with a prize.

All and all, another great day in Paris.
