I was going to call this post "Lunch at Schmuck's" because that is the name of the restaurant, but that does not come close to conveying the experience.
It helps if you know that "schmuck" is the German word for "jewelry," but somehow even that bit of linguistic sophistication does not erase the feeling tone of "schmuck."
My photos are blurry, but even they convey the feeling, the atmosphere of this jewel of a restaurant on the rue de Conde, every inch of which is covered in wall paper that looks like toile.
It was my intention to eat outside today, but the weather wasn't agreeable, so we ate inside instead.
For 15 euros, you could get either a salad and an entre or an entre and a dessert. The salad was crab; the entre was filet mignon stuffed with prunes; and the dessert was creme brûlée. Paola and Martha both got the crab salad; I, of course, got the creme brûlée.
Afterwards, we had a cafe with chocolate.
