La Coupole


We decided that after walking all over Paris, we should have a good meal. We ate at La Coupole in Montparnasse which was a place artists and intellectuals used to hang out similar to La Select which I featured earlier. This was Virginia's meal which we agreed later was probably the best one!



My foie gras appetizer.




I had the steak tartare.



Yummy sorbet!



The dome (coupole) had a crazy painting in it!



Even the bathrooms were fancy. Pink toilet and green marble!

Can't remember what I had, but it was nice having a meal with you! :-)

Looks delicious! How was the steak tartare? I wanted to try it, but settled for the snails.

Maya,, wow, in Paris now? Working?
Cool food..I'm hungry for beautiful food now! :)

Martin: yes

Peter: I only posted a few of the meals. It was great having dinner with you too! We'll have to do it again.

Dusty: I loved the steak tartare. I didn't get snails. Next time...

Sherry: I'm still working in Geneva. My blog is a bit behind! Actually, it is way behind. I've taken several trips since Paris that I still have to post about, but I took so many photos in Paris, that it will take awhile to catch up!

That sorbet looks YUMMMMMY! Not often you get to post food and toilets in the same post lol.

Love the windmill pic below too.

Lisa: Thanks! You can't accuse me of being like everyone else! Haha

I'm am laughing so much . What a fun night and yes we did walk thousands of miles that day/night. I had forgotten what i ordered. Yum, it was really good! I think you all and the waiter convinced me to order ice cream. Quelle surprise! I'm easliy led.

V: I don't usually eat dessert either, but Janet does and I am easily led too!

I had this on a suggestion list during our last trip, but didn't make it there. Would you recommend it as a must stop?

Maya said...

Rachel: Hmmm, that is a tough one. If you are going on food value alone, then probably not. However, if you are going for historical value and a pretty good meal along with interesting atmosphere, then yes, do go! I think the meat dishes were good (my steak tartare and V's steak).
