Petit Musée de la Table de la Tour d'Argent

Little Museum of the Table

...of the Table?  
Why, a most famous table, that of La Tour d'Argent.  
The little museum has a display of cutlery, original menus,
 and memorabilia from times gone by.

Probably the most impressive display, is that of a table,
which is laid out exactly as it would have been for a royal assembly
and pretigious event that took place in Paris in 1867.

Before you write down the address and put it on your to-do list
please note that it is only available in the reception area of the restaurant,
for which you have made dinner reservations.  Tant pis pour moi.

Hi Genie! What a great reflection! I also like how it's framed in blue.

So much to see in this photo Genie and the information about the silver cutlery setting adds a whole other dimension.

Isn't that amazing? 1582!

Jeanie said...

Terrific photo! And what a sneaky way to get a dinner guest! Nonetheless, the address goes into the book -- you never know!

If (I mean when) I win the lottery, I'll treat you to your very own numbered duck here!

Nice blue color wall, and the reflection is wonderful.
