Georges

France, Part VIII: A stylish sixth-floor cafe at Centre Pompidou's art museum.

Georges claims to provide some of the best panoramic views of Paris _ a boast that seems plausible, considering the sweeping scenes from these tables.

We stopped here to replenish our sugar levels after an afternoon of staring at strange sculptures and eccentric exhibits. This massive macaron worked wonderfully _ a crisp creation, with fresh, plump raspberries and a sweet, creamy filling.

The mille-feuille also made us go ga-ga, thanks to its luxurious layers of strawberries and whipped cream (or should we call it icing?).

This vanilla bourbon ice cream was equally delightful _ no less than what should be expected from an alcoholic dessert. Lusciously thick and velvety.

The perfect perk-me-up: Chateau Sahuc-les Tour Sauternes, Espresso & Cosmo.



Georges,
Paris.
