Hi Richard, hope all is well. I look forward to reading your blog entries. I feel so sorry for you, what a tough life you endure, having all those food choices, poor baby. Wish I was you! I'd gladly suffer. Enjoy Paris. Warm regards from sunny Florida. Maria


You don't eat oysters!


Is that butcher's shop the one that also sells horse meat? I recall a boucherie chevaline on the south side of the rue St. Antoine, at least it was still there last winter.
That's a delightful stretch of street. On the north side, there's still a cheap old hotel whose sign advertises "Eau chaude, gaz sur tous les étages" or something similar.


I think most of my food photo come from within a block of your place, Richard.

So happy to see all the press you are getting these days!


do you know the name of the restaurant on the corner of rue saint antione and st Paul? Any time?

Hello! We just got back from a week stay in this wonderful area! We stayed on Rue Beautrellis and ate at the wonderful Vin de Pyrenees. I personally loved L'Arsenal though for their hospitality and great atmosphere.

I am hoping to find some information about a certain boutique on Rue Saint Antoine called Tanag. There is a ring that got away that I would love to order but I just cannot find any information on the web. Any help that anyone has to offer (address, phone number) would be highly appreciated!!

I forgot to mention that Tanag is just a couple of doors down from Nicolas (wine) and I think fairly close to the Monoprix. Crossing fingers and thanks!

Does anyone know the name/address of the pearl earring jewelry store? Think "Girl with the Pearl Earring." It's on the north side of the road. I lost an earring and would like to replace it.
Thanks for any info.
