I know the question on your minds is in regard to yesterday’s incident at Notre Dame. Though minor, it was surely scary for those who got caught up in it. We were safely in our apartment but had been right there just the other day. Notre Dame is within easy walking distance of our apartment. Though we despise the terrorism, we refuse to let it stop our enjoyment of the city. We will remain ever vigilant.
Because the weather was so off-and-on unpleasant (cool, rainy, and windy), the blog will be short. There were few opportunities to take photos. The best part of our day was lunch with our friend, Richard Nahem, who invited us to try a new Israeli restaurant called Tavline a few blocks from us. If you’ve been on the blog for a while, you may recall that we are in the heart of the Jewish district of Paris and delightfully so. They are on Facebook as Tavline and on Instagram as tavline25. The address is 25 Rue Roi de Sicile.
Our lunch was such a treat, and we share some pics and a copy of the menu. The interior is compact but adorable from the interesting light fixtures to the colorful tiled floor. The wait staff was most accommodating and the prices reasonable. What I liked the most were the unique menu items. From restaurant to restaurant in Paris, the menu selections all begin to look the same unless you can afford to go very high end. Tavline was so totally different, and that was a refreshing change. Many thanks to Richard for sharing this little treasure with us.
The “Purely Paris” photo of the day may surprise you. Years ago, I told visitors NOT to wear their American white tennis shoes, as it was the most telling sign of being a tourist. Today, they are the latest fad with the Parisians. Who would of thunk it???
Have a lovely day,
