It all seems like a hazy dream now but on my first night in Paris we sat right on the pavement in the dusky evening light and ate fish and chips like I have never experienced before. We found space at a bustling St Germain de Pres cafe and while the service was appalling the food was fabulous. I think this is a pretty standard and slightly unfortunate combination experienced all over Paris. We shared roasted sea bream, cooked in a salt and herb crust accompanied by crispy pommes frites. An unforgettable meal.
