The Tartine and the Omelet
For our final day in Paris, we walked around the Marais, and looked at all the little stores. We also went to the Bastille monument, and discovered a little market nearby. Hunger overtook us, and we landed at a small bistro near the Place des Vosges. A very friendly waiter welcomed us and quickly seated us at a small table outside. We sat there and enjoyed a very good bottle of wine (Côte du Rhône - our favorite district) and read the menu. I decided on a tartine with warm chevre cheese on pain poilane. Per wanted an omelet. (What is the secret to a perfect omelet, anyway?? This was better than any I've ever made.) As you can see, the servings were beautiful and very generous. We were very, very, very happy.
