Last Night in Paris

8 o'clock reservation at Chez Michel in the 10th arrondissement.

Tiny little escargots that we had to pick out with a pin, dipped in a mustardy sauce
Dark bread

Gorgeous bottle of red Bordeaux

Scallop tartare with chicory and apples
Rabbit rilletes

Venison stew with chestnuts
Capon with a creamy langoustine sauce

Paris-Brest - a circle of choux pastry filled with praline buttercream
Kouign Aman -caramelized butter and sugar cake

Not at all! A kir is a drink of white wine and cassis.
