Spring: Good Eats in Paris

Spring, yes, the season we are all waiting anxiously for in order to feel alive again after months of darkness and subzero temps.  Spring, the season, in Paris isn't always as beautiful as the song April in Paris alludes to.  Early flowers abound which lighten spirits but are found underneath heavy grey clouds.  It IS Paris so there is that consolation.  

There is another Spring in Paris that can lift your spirits anytime of the year if you can get a reservation that is.  The tiny (16 seat) restaurant owned by American, specifically Chicagoan, Daniel Rose has won over the city and is sold out for months in advance.  Renovations are underway in a larger space that apparently will open this year.  His menus change daily, you get what he has decided to serve  based on what he finds appealing at market and the French critics like him.  That is huge.  

Found this short video that gives you a look into what you might expect should you be one of the lucky few who gets a table here.
