Everyone's going to Paris. Two good friends, two current colleagues, plus a couple of ex-colleagues, have all in recent weeks asked for pointers and recommendations as they plan trips, for work or pleasure, to the great City of Light and Dark Chocolate. It's fun to imagine their adventures.
One of my friends, the fun and fabulous Melody, was just there for a photo shoot and relayed a classic story. She went to Brasserie Lipp with her client. The client asked for a menu in English. The waiter looks at the woman, pauses, and says "never" and walks away and
literally never returns.
Such ridiculous behavior, but so deliciously French!
