Thursday 14 January - Lunch with Gail

Today we had lunch with Gail Boisclair who runs Perfectly Paris.  Le Bon Georges is a small restaurant close to the St. George metro.  The atmosphere was convivial and the food and wine was excellent.  Mary and I both started with razor clams and then had roast cochon au lait.
Razor clams are quite a treat.  We have never seen them in a Paris restaurant.  The last time we had them was in northern Spain.
It has been alternating rain and bright sunshine.  At one time during lunch there was a heavy downpour which included hailstones.  However we walked up to the Moulin Rouge and rue Lepic and on to Arnaud Larher which has a good reputation as a patisseur.
A selection of pastries from Arnaud Larher.  Chestnut meringue, tarte au citron (very lemony), mille feuille with a cinnamon biscuit, chocolate mousse.
