After hitting up Versailles, the Louvre, and Parc du Luxemborg we decided to grab dinner before heading back to our hotel. We passed by this restaurant when we were first getting off the Metro and starting our stroll around the area. It had lots of folks outside which we took as a sign of this-must-be-pretty-tasty.

Not Cool #1: We were seated in the smoking section and the waiter proceeded to bring over a large party of 10 chain smokers so take up the tables next to us. Grrrreat. My asthma really appreciated that. We moved tables.

Not Cool #2: We ordered diet soda and water. It was 4 Euros. Each. It came with glasses. Small ones. With spoons. What the heezy are the spoons for?

Not Cool #3: I ordered a Croque Monsieur. I didn’t know for sure what it was but it was supposed to be basically a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. Doesn’t it look deceivingly tasty in the picture? Somewhere in that sandwich is BLUE CHEESE. Blech. There is not a better way to ruin my meal than to throw some blue cheese on there. Or should I say bleu cheese. Whatever. It’s decidedly NOT COOL. Also, it had one measly slice of ham. What a bummer. There’s also a Croque Madame that has an egg on top which, according to Wikipedia, (I know, I know … it must be true!) resembles either a lady’s hat or a boob. You take your pick.

Sadly, just another stop on our unlucky taste trek through Paris.
