Paris Excess and Finesse

The Paris Poodle apologises for the late posting but I have been glamourously galavanting around Paris with my gorgeous girlfriends, frequenting Paris’s most famously fabulous haunts! After all, even in these ‘crunch’ ridden times if you can't have the odd blow out in Paris at Christmas, then where and when can you!?

The Poodle opted for a 3 course dinner on Saturday night with gorgeous girls and great company, at Les Deux Canards, with its typically French interior and quirky French cuisine- the restaurant is located in the back streets of the 10th arrondisement and you must book ahead or be beautifully rich to make sure you have a table.
The food and wine is utterly first class and beginning the evening with their cherry or orange wine is a great way to start! I finished with their cremalicious crème brulee which was burnt to perfection in theatrical fashion in front of my own eyes. This was enough to leave me feeling 100% satisfied, thirst quenched and well fed...until we found ourselves in THE Paris Four Seasons Hotel, George V – think Ritz and Glitz!

The sparkling rose champagne by Cuvée Louise Rosé was divinely delicious and the ambience of their marble floors, plush sofas, soft lighting and excellent service (every glass came with a selection of chocolates, nuts, olives and nougart) made this Poodle temporarily feel that excess is best...but as the bubbles kept bubbling I couldn’t help but feel that having drunk nearly 100 euros of champagne in only a couple of glasses that maybe DIY at home Glam could just be my new plan.... it has to be – I’ve used up my annual visit allowance to George V until next year! (January is only one month away!)
