terraces ( inside or outside )

Thank you all for your words of wisdom. But PhiD and Parigi, hit it on the head, watching the world go by and feeling part of the city, was what I was really after. Where you could enjoy yourself for hours if they would let you.

Ptipois, drinks with a view, would work also

It is a 3 part question. What terrace restaurant is your favorite for the view. Secondly, What is your favorite terrace restaurant for the food?

Or is it possible that the terrace restaurant actually qualifies for best view and food, in your opinion?

challenge - 21 "Best" Dishes

Sorry John, Did not know the new rules. I have been gone for over a year. As you can see I have been following this site for a long time ( 2000). Was trying to get the juices flowing, with the likes of you, souphie, Phild, parigi, ptipois, mangeur, chefjune, DCM plus others, sorry if I did include all of you. I know most of your favorite restaurants, You all mention, a great meal, here and there. But I thought I it would be nice to see the what I think are the GODS of food, what would their variety of choices would be. This is THE food bible of the internet. What would talk about "bacon"

After 28 posts on 30 different restaurants, I thought it would be interesting to compile a list of
the "best" 21 dishes of the trip. This is purely subjective and personal. It is not meant to mean
anything more than those dishes that I thought were exceptional in taste, execution and the
number one criteria "Something, I would eat again in a minute."
They are presented in the order in which they were eaten i.e. they are not ranked. Also, as we ate
at some restaurants three times and were able to sample many more dishes, there will be more
dishes on the list from that particular restaurant.
1. Salpicon de rouget de roche and capres la wicchia, lard blanc colonnata, feuille de bar de linge
mi-fume, deux variete de carottes -smoked bar underneath red mullet with bacon and carrot
sauce (Gagnaire)

encased in a pastry shell (Georges Blanc)
5. Boeuf Charolaise Chateau au vin Fleurie et la moelle, pommes de terre a la forezienne-
Charolais beef topped with beef marrow, red wine reduction sauce (Troisgros)
6. Canette de challans epicee et pickles d'eechalotes, pomme soufflees- Roast duckling, roasted
shallots, "puffed" potatoes (Troisgros)
7. Lentil ragout with various vegetables with a slightly smoked poached egg surrounded by black
truffles(Marcon)

black truffle sauce (Marcon)
9. Lamb cooked in bread dough with a small casserole of potatoes and cepes (Marcon)

11. Rabbit cutlets served with haricot verts in a garden herb vinagrette (Rochat)
12. La Mousseline de Grenouilles - Mousse of pike filled with frogs leg meat, spinach, fine herbs

Paris - Meats for sandwiches - DELI's?

Are there any ( in USA ) we call DELI's that will slice meat for sandwiches per pound/kilo to take home. ( eg "corn beef" or "roast beef" or turkey )
