Le Train Bleu

Monday, Starman asked if I had lunch or dinner here at le Train Bleu. I replied that I'd not dined but enjoyed a glass or two of champagne in this beautiful place last summer. I decided I'd post this photo to prove it! Located in the Gare de Lyon, it is over the top gorgeous. I highly recommend it.

While we have the champagne out, let's just drink a little birthday toast to our friend Peter! Joyeux anniversaire mon ami!

What a super shot of le Train Bleu. Such an amazing place and such an original photo of it.

Sorry, V, did you say glass or two, or bottle or two? ;) Just kidding. That photo's too magnificent to have been taken under the influence!

Maya said...

Just caught up on your blog V! As usual, many fantastic shots. Makes me want to go back!!

What a sparklingly stunning photo! I was lucky enough to be taken to Le Train Bleu by a friend; it's such a stunning location, and the food was delicious. I don't think we drank champagne though. Let's definitely meet here for a drink sometime!

Quelle elegance! You really know how to live, V—and this gorgeous photo is the next best thing to being there.

Alexa,
I can't take credit, I just hang out with some really nice people when in Paris.

Katie,
THat's a plan!

Shell,
I wish we had emptied those bottles but we'd have never made it out the door!

Jilly,
Thanks. It's got a lot of "noise" but that's due to the low light I was fighting.

Maya,
I know, I have been so busy lately I haven't been visiting all my buddies.

Stunning!

Perfect DOF .. those 'bubbles' of bokeh are exactly right for a photo of Champagne!

Looks like champagne is exactly what one should have at le Train Bleu...I can feel the bubbles tickling my nose as I look at the pic...or maybe it's just this dang bronchial thing clearing up!!!

Virginia --

Lovely photo -- looks like a magazine advertisement for the good life! Love the lights in the background!!

We had dinner in Le Train Bleu. It's a little pricey, but well worth the euros. Our waiter loved Key West, so when he found out we were from Florida, he couldn't do enough for us. I'm sure a lot of the wine we drank that night was not on the bill.

Is it Peter's birthday?

Virginia said...

Starman,
Maybe we'll finally land in Paris at the same time one day. Dinner at le Train Bleu would be delightful. Oui, our Peter is the birthday boy. He probably isn't all that excited about it. We know that feeling I"m sure.
