There now are several sites for this restaurant group. This is the original.


I couldn’t agree with you more Col. Lang... on the entrecôte avec sa sauce secrète et les pommes allumettes. Unique!
They also have have a location in Geneva for those interested.


If you get back to Paris before Macron and the Mayor ruin what's left of it try Chez Trassoudaine in the 13th. Great steaks there too.

I believe you are frequent visitor to Paris. Would you have suggestions for some restaurants that you have particularly enjoyed? I'll be there in a few weeks to get French perspectives on the Gilets Jaunes phenomenon and its implications for the EUR.

Macron is talking about the despot in Venezuela. The irony.



I was thinking about "analysis is not advocacy" post on lebanon.yours is a timely warning.this coincides with the riots in france and Venezuela.iran and its proxies are moving on to an attack mode and it will be there downfall.the consequences of iraq roadside bombs and other action has come back to haunt them not only in syria but now iran.once the straits close anything can happen.i advocate for iran to make payments instead of war.bribery is acceptable in certain parts of the world.

You won't lack for good food options in Paris. The place the col mentions is great, take some friends and your time. The one I mentioned is in the 13th, great family restaurant. L'Homme Bleu in the 11th which Patrick Bahazd recommended to me a few years back. As he said, great couscous, best I've had anywhere. La Méditerranée on Place de l'Odéon is fabulous too. Never did the dinner cruise but Alain Ducasse runs one now, had lunch at his restaurant on the Eiffel tower many years ago, which would be a great place too if refurbishment is done. Bring your wallet for those two.

Make sure to travel outside Paris for your news gathering. I think Gilets Jaunes is far more than what is seen in Paris.

Thanks. Yes, I will be traveling all across France both urban and rural areas and have meetings scheduled with a wide cross section of people. My focus is to try and understand the intersection of political undercurrents & finance. Attempting to see what the implications may be on the currency.


Bp - If you are in the SW I recomment "La Toque Blanche" in the medieval village of Pujols just outside Villeneuve sur Lot.
