we had just finished a fabulous meal at the Clos des Gourmets at 16 Avenue Rapp in Paris. The service had been top notch. Each and every course had been perfectly executed- a rarity even at the most high end of restaurants. We were headed down the street when we stopped before crossing at the next corner as we looked up- there all alight in its glory was Eiffel's incredible masterpiece of engineering. So denigrated when being constructed and so beloved today- is there a better known symbol of a city than this one?
