Amazing View at 8:00 a.m.

I did a sub job in Paris last week, and this beautiful view greeted me each morning as I got out of the metro. Beautiful any time of day.......

Rue St. Dominique/Restaurant Review

Rue St. Dominique just around the corner from the Tour Eiffel is an great walking street. Albeit, somewhat touristy, but a nice setting and great for window shopping. After visiting the Tour Eiffel, one can meander over to this street for a bit of quiet. There is a great little restaurant over there called Les Cocottes. I highly recommend it for a great, inexpensive lunch. The name means "casserole" as all the dishes are served in Staubware casseroles or on staubware plates. It's better to sit at the counter where one can observe the comings and goings of the staff. This is a Michelin recommendation as a Bib Gourmande with one spoon. For 10 euros I had an awesome omlette served with a salad, bread and a glass of rosé. You can't get any better value than that. We paid that price for each of my children's lunches, and it doesn't even compare. If you find yourself in Paris, I highly recommend this establishment. Bon Appetit!!
