We've eaten so much incredible French food that we almost decided not to have a final celebratory Parisian dinner with Jason, but then we got a last minute reservation at Taillevent and just had to go.
Jason, not looking a day over 40, and me sporting my La Vie du Grande Norde scarf as I zoom toward my 45th birthday in September:
And the beautiful French food -
Soup for Jason:
Risotto with mushrooms and white almonds, without the optional frog's legs:
Lamb for Jason:
Langoustine with apricot and parsley for Brad and me - the Before photo:
We had a lovely cheese course which wasn't photographed, but was surely enjoyed.
We were really quite full of food after a month of fine dining, so we kept dessert small.
One scoop of sorbet for Brad:
Two scoops of sorbet for Jason:
And a perfect strawberry tart for me, with flecks of gold foil as accents:
At some point we'll need to return for the full degustation experience when we haven't already been eating ourselves silly for an entire month.
Posting some random photos that weren't included in previous food posts:

Lobster at Le Cinq for both Brad and me:
