Isn't it nice to be able to walk to dinner at our friends' house - in Paris?

Last night was Seafood Blowout II (number I was back in March 2009) at Nancy & David's. Their friend, Patrick, from Hong Kong joined us.

Here is the plateau des fruits de mer. Isn't it a thing of beauty? Shrimp, crab, raw oysters and sea snails - not to mention homemade mayo and mignonette. It was wonderful.

Next was perfectly cooked pasta with pesto sauce (no pic - oops!) and then the desserts.

Cheese - we drizzled buckwheat honey on one of the goat cheeses. Oh my.


And one of the best tarte au citron I've ever had.

Here we are before devouring the platter.

Nancy and Patrick. He was a great guy. His son, who lives in Brooklyn, is a musician and is on tour in Europe; Patrick has become a roadie, of sorts. ;-)

It was a great evening. Lots of fun, lots of laughs, lots of great food and great wine.

The walk home was very pleasant - lovely, mild night. This is what we see a few blocks from the apartment...


  1. Brings back good memories. Those two are fun. Looks like you guys are having a great time!

  2. It looks very good. Were the oysters opened already or did you have to open them yourselves?

  3. Opened, but you must order in advance. We tried to get a dozen oysters to go a few nights ago, and there was no shucking to be had on the fly. ;-)
