sous le soleil

it must have been my lucky week-- not only has it been sunny in paris for weeks [!?], but [somewhat coincidentally] i got to try out both of the brances of le soleil in one week. first i checked out the new resto at 135 rue de grenelle in paris, and was enchated by the sunny turquoise and terracotta dining room, delcious amuse-bouche, and yummy mediterranean cuisine. [the huge bucket of fresh salted butter they give you with your bread could be a meal in itself!]

next up was the original resto, on a side street near the puces de st. ouen, which has been hailed by critics for years as the only decent place worth eating at the puces. i have to say that it was much more than decent, utterly delicious, and worth every centime of the 28 or 35 euro lunch menu. the welcome is warm and friendly, as is the spacious dining room, littered with antique-y finds. stopping for a nice glass of savignon and a tasty dejeuner is a great way to think over that vuitton valise you had been eyeing at the flea market....right ron & gay? [and merci again for a lovely lunch!]
