A few days in Paris

Fred and I came over to Paris for a quick jaunt.  We rented an apartment thru One Fine Stay.  It is pretty sweet being able to chill in a living room and have some of the comforts of home.  

We didn't do a lot yesterday but walk around, have lunch and take a nap.  We did however go to Bones for dinner.  It is in the 11th.  Very industrial in feel and the food is delicious.  We could not get a reservation so went early and sat at the bar.  By the time we left the place was packed.  

We split everything.  Oysters from Utah Beach.  Big briny and amazing.

Sea urchin.  Beautiful presentation. 

BBQ'd oysters.  Interesting flavors.  Smoky yet still briny.

Sliced raw sea bass that could have been sliced a tad thinner with olive oil, salt and thinly sliced green radishes on top.  Really nice and just simple.

This was just amazing.  Cote de Boeuf on the bone.  Sliced up and served.  We thought there was no way we could eat the whole thing and yet we did.  We did share one piece with a woman who was obviously a foodie at the bar who completely enjoyed it too.  Served with an incredible soft polenta that was doused with olive oil and a nice simple green salad.  Insanely delicious.

Xmas markets
The next day we got up and walked and walked.  The Christmas Booths are in up and down the Champs Elysee.  There has to be at least 200 of them.  

Afterward we made our way over to the Marais to have a late lunch at Bobs Kitchen  So good.  Fred had a green juice.  They are known for their jucies.  

For lunch we each had the roasted vegetables, arugula salad and a chunky grain with green curry sauce over the top.  Really excellent.  

For dessert we split a green tea cookie with chocolate chips.  I am going to figure out how to make those when I get back to NYC.
