Weekend en brefOctober 30, 2006 at 1:01 pm | Posted in food, vie quotidienne | 5 Comments
Saturday: clothes shopping, including an exciting hour during which we thought we had been pickpocketed. Wallet turned up later at home.
Saturday night: fabulous sushi, lovely wine, and charming company at Restaurant Wa, near Les Halles.
The restaurant was lit entirely with pink and blue light, making accurate photography a bit of a challenge.
Usually I won’t use flash when I’m in public, but shhh… I had to do justice to the fish. Also, dessert:
Lychee sorbet, which I was way too fish-stuffed to eat, but I certainly admired the presentation. It’s like they planned the whole plate to accompany the lighting scheme.
From there, we continued on to the Cour St. Emilion, where we were just in time for some prime people watching, then started home just in time to miss the last metro. More fun awaited me as I ran for the Noctobus:
Damn you, Paris sidewalk grates! Grrr.
Sunday morning was spent mostly moaning over my excessive consumption of raw fish. Why am I such a pig? Anyway, around two in the afternoon, I managed a light lunch:
Sunday evening, I was invited to a wine tasting group. The first meeting was themed around sparkling whites:
This was the first bottle of the night, so I have no excuse for the blurriness. I also have no excuse for how I failed to photograph the outstanding hors d’oeuvres assembled by our host, except that I was too busy stuffing them in my mouth to grab the camera. Cheese puffs, rabbit terrine, and pistachio foie gras, oh my! Seriously, that foie gras was to die for.
Four bottle of champagne among four people! That’s quite an event.
Then home to collapse into bed without dinner, and wake up this morning a little worse for wear. Bright sunshine (!) plus a hot cup of tea are slowly bringing me back to normal.
