One of the things I'm looking forward to while in Paris
(THIS TIME NEXT WEEK!!)
is hitting some of my favorite eateries
and a few ART exhibitions!
The Brasserie Suffren sits right on the corner
(of La Motte Picquet and Avenue de Suffren)
at one of the entrances to the park of the Champs de Mars,
the break between the 15th and 7th arrondissements.
It boasts a beautiful Fruits de Mer plateau (seafood platter)
and a mean Soupe a l'Oignon.
It's a short walk from home
and I'm looking forward to sitting in their rouge decor,
sipping something bubbly with the same gentleman waiters who never leave
and watching the people go by while waiting for some fabulous food.
And across the park in the 7th arrondissement at the Musee Maillol
is an exhibit on the art collection of the Borgias,
from Michelangelo and Da Vinci to Bellini and Raphael.
I don't know about you but I watched every episode of
The Borgias I could get my hands on.
Interesting to see what they collected.
Will see if I can get photos.
A tout a l'heure.
