Le Grand Colbert


While being in Paris the restaurant Le Grand Colbert was chosen for the fortieth anniversary lunch. It is located on a quiet small street Rue Vivienne right behind Palais-Royal. To avoid crowd we decided to come there a little bit later than regular lunch hours. What a surprise was waiting for us? The entrance door did not have a handle to come in. I tried to knock, and then made a signs through the window to waitress to open the door, but no reaction followed. We were about to leave with a huge frustration. Suddenly the car stopped in front of an entrance and a young man with a bouquet of flowers came to the door. Somebody from inside opened the door for him. I asked this person if they are opened and work and had the positive answer. Then I told him they are in trouble because there is no handle that means no customers. 🙂 He was really surprised, apologized and invited us inside. From this point the rest of visit was amazing.
The restaurant is really inviting and homey. Soft light, comfortable couches and chairs, and nice staff made environment friendly and cozy. But the real pleasure came with wine and meals. Food was delicious. Desert impressed us totally. The restaurant is not pricy at all – reasonable money for the delicious food.
Now I understand why the movie “Something’s Gotta Give” used to make one scene in here.

Sweet November in Paris

The beginning of November in Paris this year is awesome. Warm and sunny days were much appreciated by local people and tourists. It does not look like there is a slow season in Paris. Although November is the last autumn month there are plenty of tourists in the city. Anyway, Paris is beautiful in any season and you can enjoy walking around lovely attractions, beautiful streets full of shops, cafe, restaurants, souvenir boutiques and many other interesting places. It is for sure Moveable Feast as it was said long time ago by Ernest Hemingway.
