quick trip update

went to les cocottes for a quick lunch after getting here from london

chicken fricassee with the most amazing potatoes (especially coming from london where they dont season the potatoes) was amazing the mrs had a cesear salad that was very good as well

grabbed a macaroon from gregory renard - it was excellent and the mrs asked how long they would last if we take them home, always a good sign

l'ami jean was amazing - didnt realize the foie gras was only for 2 and was 80 euro - which was disappointing until i started eating everything else then i didnt miss it at all

had the lobster app which was probably the best lobster both of us have ever had

the beef for 2 (which would actually have been for 4! Seared on the outside and almost blue / tartare on the inside - it was amazing - i liked the blue and the mrs liked the seared outside so worked out very nicely

the rice pudding was amazing - basically what everyone else has already said

the fun factor was actually sitting at the middle table next to others, sat by a very nice couple that was actually coming to visit the us to AZ where we are from as well as las vegas so it was nice to be able to help them out, as they helped us with the menu a bit

there is also one waiter who speaks fluent english so if any english only speaker is scared do not be - you will be just fine

also lance blankenship was there from one of the boy bands the mrs noted, they pulled away in a Rolls, our table was trying to figure out if it was him or not (i didnt know who he was) but after they left in the RR we figured it had to be him

overall great time - don't miss this place - great atmosphere and fun

off for more sore feet and sightseeing will post a proper review later but will update everyone when i can

thanks again for all of your help!
