Impasse des Carrieres~ Missing Paris Day

On a walk a few weeks ago in our neighborhood in Paris,
we came upon a small street we'd never seen before:
Impasse des Carrieres.

A small, cobblestone alleyway off Passy
with this little indoor/outdoor Brocante shop
and restaurant next door.
The restaurant was under construction
so I thought it better to get a picture of the sign
as this endearing spot must look in the summer.

I'm looking forward to coming back next time
to see how it turns out.
A walk back across our Grenelle bridge
offers views of the above-ground metro...

...and the tower from across the Seine.
In all our years, we have yet to
make it to the Musee du Vin
so close by.

But that's one thing
about Paris...
there is
to come back for!
