Our last dinner in Paris

Recommended by the concierge at our hotel, hubby and I had a wonderful evening out .. our last night in Paris, after an amazing holiday in France filled with wonderful memories of places, experiences and above all, new friendships along the way.

Within walking distance of the hotel, we experienced French hospitality and excellent food and French wine (of course!)   at it’s very best in an intimate elegant restaurant called  L’Épopée (The Epic).  Nightlife in Paris starts late in the evening .. we were the first patrons there!  In fact, the two friends who run the restaurant, one the chef and the other in-front-of-house, were sitting outside enjoying the warm evening, the sun still high, not nearly ready to sink down for the night!   By the end of the evening, all tables were full (and there were only about 10,  with two on the pavement)

    What a beautiful setting!

  2. The food looks amazing and at least the portions seems a good size. Some more amazing sights as well. I love the pics of the Eiffel Tower in lights
