Im going to tell you all about one of my favourite Parisienne Restaurants today
I first heard about le grande velour while reading the book Julie and Julia (after seeing the movie,which I love)
I can’t believe I had been visiting Paris for over 12 years at this point and have only just visited le grand vefour. What a waste. Because this restaurant is a game changer.
They say first impressions are important, and if that’s true le grand before knows how to make them. Being greeted by Guy Martin himself, is certainly the way to going about making an incredible first impression
I'm embarrassed to tell you this, but this was the first time I tried Brie. And what an introduction to this amazing and now one of my favourite cheeses. Triple cream Brie of dreams
Now, to our absolute delight this restaurant is BIG on the sweet things. My husband and I have the biggest sweet tooth, so this was the deal sealer for us.
Its not just the obvious sugar rush that drives our love for sweet things. For us, its the beauty and theatre that comes from deserts that drive our passion. Deserts are the grande finale, the feather in the cap and fireworks at the end of a meal. This menu had a lot of very spectacular fireworks....JUST YES!
To further seal the deal on our love for this place we were served handmade chocolates and sweets...OMG!
Dont even get me started on how beautiful the China is. Actually the most beautiful China Iv ever seen.
