odette & aimé ~ 46 rue de maubeuge, 75009, Paris, France
i’m not sure if i was just delirious from traveling for nearly 24 hours or if this place was really THAT good, but man it really hit the spot. i finally arrived in Paris around 8pm and eventually made it out the door for dinner around 9pm. this, however, is a very appropriate time to sit down for a meal like this in Paris. and having my first dinner at this place was also incredibly appropriate. a welcome to france french bistro. we sat down, the service surprisingly attentive, downed a few glasses of cotes du rhone, and then our incredible meal arrived. i indulged in duck confit, fried garlic potatoes and a salad, not without a heaping bowl of french onion soup (seriously amazing). we ended the night with another glass of red and i finally lay may weary head to rest.
