Ultimate lunch on the Eiffel Tower

I had lunch Saturday at Alain Ducasse's Le Jules Verne restaurant on the Eiffel Tower and it was spectacular. Since this was my first visit to Paris, I wanted to kick off my European vacation with something "once-in-a-lifetime" and this lunch certainly fit the bill. The restaurant has its own private elevator (holding only 8 people) and you have to have a confirmed reservation to get up there. Lunch was a six course meal and I had the wine pairing to go with it, so six wines for six courses and lunch took 4 hours. Lobster bites were followed by foie gras with bread, rhubarb, and strawberries. Third was a terrific white asparagus dish with almonds and orange peel, served with a creamy almost-Hollandaise like sauce that had hints of citrus; little bacon bits were scattered about. The main course was pigeon in a dark wine sauce with peas and mushrooms, the whole dish was dark, rich, and delicious, although this one didn't photograph well. Two (yeah, two ) dessert courses followed. First a berry vacharin with rose ice cream and topped with a couple meringues. Then came the finale of a small chocolate cake beautifully iced with a center of warm caramel sauce served with hazelnut ice cream. Beautiful and delicious. And as if that wasn't enough, macarons, truffles, marshmallow bites and more were also served at the end. A great meal in a spectacular setting. I'll be walking those calories off for weeks! And happy to do it - so worth it!

MFW I wake up and realize I'm leaving today for a month in Europe

After more than a year of planning, my dream vacation is finally here. I'll sleep on a plane tonight and land in Paris tomorrow. After a few days there, I'll train to Amsterdam and meet up with my friends/favorite travel companions and after a couple days we'll board a Uniworld river cruise boat for two weeks through Germany and Austria, ending in Vienna. A few days later we'll fly to Switzerland for the final four days of our trip. My first visit to "the continent" and the longest vacation I've ever taken all rolled up into one. I'm pretty excited and I'll be sharing lots of photos over the next month.

I enjoy movies, fine food & wine, and playing with my electronic gadgets. I also enjoy great photography. I'm not a very talented photographer myself, but I am a very appreciative viewer and admirer. I am a native of the Los Angeles area of California, where I still live today. I am a self-employed accountant by trade, but at heart I am a great appreciator of technology, art, and creative endeavors of all forms.
