Man, that really sounds good. Few things are as satisfying to me as a really good grilled cheese with chicken noodle soup. It helps that it's 55 and pouring here today.

I like grilled cheese, Kraft singles by the way, on Ezikiel sprouted 7 grain bread, fried in butter. Cool

Had Vietmanise today. Vermicelli with pork.
For Fathers' Day, our sons and their families are coming over for a brunch with bagels, lox, whitefish, baked salmon, and a bunch of sides. No wine. I thought a bottle of Champagne would be nice, but they're driving and the little kids will be running around.

What a coincidence! I'm having the exact same thing with only 2 substitutions- I'm replacing the lobster with tuna salad, and the wine with Diet Snapple.

Ha, it appears one of us is working today. Wink
Atelier du Joel Robichon, St-Germain:

Me: gazpacho (not your average tomato soup, topped with tiny purple flowers and extremely intense tiny basil leaves); carpaccio of sea bream with lime and olive oil; l'oeuf (gently poached perfect egg served in classic martini glass under a mushroom foam containing the smallest chanterelles you can imagine, with slices of black truffle at the bottom); tiny lamb chops with signature mashed potatoes (more butter and cream than potato, artery-closing)

She: cured Atlantic salmon with remarkable potato galette and black truffle creme fraiche; spaghetti (you had to see it to believe it, a perfect round tower, with intense sauce of fresh tomato); another signature dish we've had before-- quail stuffed with fois gras, and how they do it is a minor miracle of gastronomy, the skin crisp, the meat perfect, the fois gras not melted.

Our friends had the fois gras main course, in a cherry sauce with fresh cherries stuffed with roasted almonds, as well as red snapper in the most beautiful fish presentation I've ever seen.

Couple bottles: NV Bruno Paillard Blanc de Blancs, and 2002 Jayer-Gilles Echezaux, both drinking very well.

I love the tasting menu here, but we slept in this morning so I only had time for a coffee before we rushed to lunch, so this was really breakfast for us, and I have to say that while I can't do it on a regular basis like my friend wind + art might, I can certainly see the appeal Smile . We'll likely go back for dinner 2 weeks from today.

Have had some really nice meals in places new to me, and will try to post some good recommendations later. Just got back from Sunrise Jazz Club (nice little sax led combo from Boston) and I'm guessing tomorrow won't be an early day either-- will finally be visiting catacombs, something we've talked about for years and with shitty weather, at least we'll be dry down there.

Look at you! I'm sure S will forgive you for your latest misstep, and I do hope you are taking your gout pills based solely on the food you two are enjoying. ( I'm envious)

Please, keep these cards and letters coming.
