Last night’s experience was just about as I had expected. Took a taxi to Les Ombres. The restaurant sits atop the musee branley and looks southwest directly at the Eiffel Tower. Another beautiful and cool paris evening. We arrived and were promptly seated at the best table for two in the restaurant. No cynicism here, it was spectacular.
The restaurant is all glass and steel, walls and roof. The decor is the view.
Service was slow to bad, food was ordinary and expensive, i.e., no value. But the view… C’est magnifique!
That’s all you’ll get out of me about last night.
Tonight, a restaurant I am very excited about, le Comptoir du Relais.
Very small, very casual setting, it’s only about the food. Will be excited if the chef, Yves Camdeborde is in the house. Hoping for a very special culinary evening.
