L’Oiseau Blanc – (Modigliani Quartet)

No comments

The saying “To much of a good thing isn’t good for you,” does not apply to The Peninsula and it definitely does not apply to L’Oiseau Blanc.   The return was much anticipated and the final indulgence was light, as we needed to save room for dinner.

Greeted by Rodolphe and Sylvain, we sat down to another amazing afternoon with top-notch service, delicious food and wine, and a great time with new and old friends!!!  With another spectacular sunny day and an incredible view of the Eiffel Tower all was right with the world and my little piece of heaven.

As luck would have it, two of our dear friends from the Modigliani Quartet were home in Paris and were able to swing by to catch up.  If you do not know this amazing quartet it’s time you did.  We’ve known “The Mods” since 2007 and the musicianship is simply impeccable and flawless.

After Laurent and Philippe headed out, we decided to hang out a little while longer just to chill before dinner and enjoy a glass of the Weingut Landauer Spätlese Gewürztraminer – – Rodolphe thanks again for  introducing us to this delightful Gewürztraminer.  And again, a million “Thank Yous” to you and Sylvain for making our time at L’Oiseau Blanc an unforgettable experience and one we are dying to repeat.  All the best and see you both very soon!!!!
