First Meal in Paris

I can't believe it's been months since we landed in Paris and didn't even feel like I had been on a plane long enough to experience it yet. (I popped 2 Advil PM at take off and was out like a light for the entire flight.) Once we checked into our hotel, it was time for food, fast! So our concierge recommended L'Estrapade.
          We walked in, not able to speak any French, and found a tiny room with 6 or 7 small tables. A dog was curled up under one of the tables, and the owner, whose name was Mark, came out of the kitchen to greet and seat us. Here are the photos from our lunch!
The very sweet pup!

My salad

A divine steak
 The food was served on slate that came from another region of France. The smells and ambiance set the scene for a wonderful trip, which you all know we had. Take me back to Paris please!
