    Fab photo of the four of you! le Train Bleu may appeal to tourists, but we know plenty of Parisians who consider it a treat for history, architecture and atmosphere 🙂 Love seeing the various fois gras photos.

    Safe travels home for your visitors and bon dimanche to you and Bernie!

      Glad to get your perspective. Maybe we’re not too gauche after all! My favorite reason for dining there is that the immensity of the place affords a quiet dinner where everyone can carry on a conversation with ease. In these tiny restaurants/bistros, brasseries, etc. the noise level is prohibitive to conversation so much of the time.

    Wow!! What amazing memories were made the last few days! Thank you Linda and Bernie for giving of your time and sharing your tips, advice, experiences and knowledge of Paris with Brooke and Kayla. Their trip was much more than they ever dreamed. And Clip said dinner at Le Train Bleu is enough reason for him to visit. (:

    Le Train Bleu looks like a marvelous place to visit and dine. It is rich in history; serves artistically created menu items, and you can dine in gilded splendor. I’d put it on one of my must visits if we ever make it back to Paris.

    Wonderful photos especially the one of the 4 of you. Love the gilded paintings and other reminders of the era of the “train”.

    Thank you for reminding us of our visit to Le Train Bleu with you and Bernie. California has outlawed your entre. Jim
