Paris, France Day 2 (Part II) - L'Atelier Saint Germain de Joel Robuchon

Our bellies were grumbling and the excitement was building as we waited for 2:30 to come around so we could finally have lunch at L'Atelier Saint Germain.  Since our reservations had been set since the beginning of August ... it was no surprise that we were more than a little anxious to finally get there.  Arriving about an HOUR early...(What?! We were HUNGRY?!?! ;)  we surveyed the neighborhood before eventually making our way inside. 

Because this particular lunch was another "MUST-Visit" for Chad... I took out my trusty little Canon to document our plates of delicious yumminess.  Yes, yes, can bet, it was Yvette, The Foodie Tourist, on the loose again.  ;) 

The view from our seats.. Right into the central kitchen..
