Place de la Concorde and Arc du Triomphe

The afore-mentioned adrenaline had us strolling down wide boulevards..

Place de la Concorde (this is where all the beheading took place)

The Obelisk at Place de la Concorde. It’s more than 3,000 years old.

Place de la Concorde marks the beginning of the famous Avenue des Champs Elysees. Each step brought us closer to the Arc du Triomphe.

Chartier was recommended to us by several sources, and it happened to be on the same street as our hotel. It was very busy when we arrived, and we quickly learned that the maitre’d will seat you wherever there’s room. We ended up sharing a table for four with two Parisian women and as we looked around the restaurant we noticed several other sets of people in the same circumstances. We were thrown for a few short moments by the awkwardness, but once we decided what to order we felt much more comfortable and the food was amazing. We think we saw Doogie Howser, M.D. dining there.
