ttt so that I've this thread on reference. I'm always interested in doing when the sales are starting.

(I'll be there Jan. 14-16 for my usual long-weekend trip.)

Have fun.

The Sunday Times (London) had a good article about making the most of the winter sales in Paris. Until reading the article, I did not know that Hermes will hold a sale for five days only, Jan. 16-20 in Salle Gaveau (on the 45 rue la Boetie)--they don't want the bargain hunting hoi polloi in their regular store, of course! Silk scarves will be marked down 50%; that's a big drop considering that most European sales are only 10-20% off. Shoes, belts and beach towels (?) will also be half price.

Thanks so much! We don't leave until 2pm on the 13th, so at least I will have all of the 11th and 12th if I want to shop a bit.

Lucky you! You'll have time b/4 the sale to note items at stores you want to return to on the 11th. I love bargains...getting one in Paris would be even better!

Hi - I have the Le Train Bleu menu right in front of me(lucky to be presented with one each at dinner to take home as a momento!)
The dining-room is just awesome and on offer are temptations like:
Roast breast of Landes duck a l'orange with zucchini & ginger pancakes-
Upside-down rabbit & pickled aubergine pie with a pungent summer savoy sauce-
Maine lobster ravioles with vegetables fresh from the market in a shellfish sauce-
and SO much more!
Being a large establishment you may have good luck in getting a table at short notice.
May I also suggest a fantastic restaurant I stumbled across whilst looking for something else(never mentioned or reccommended here as not on the tourist route)it's in the 11th -Restaurant l'Aiguiere, 37bis, Rue de Montreuil. Ph; 01.43724232, Fax:01.43729636.
It has absolutely fabulous food!
37 bis, rue de Montreuil,
