…… did I take Oscar with me out in Brighton – I went to the restaurant without him, so I had to walk back the hotel. Had a feeling that if I didn’t do that evening it wouldn’t happen at all.
Had a fantastic dinner at Côte Brasserie, a French bistro concept and I had far better onion soup than I ever had in Paris and the Pork Belly was so tender and flavor full. So Mark Bolland at Evening Standard is right in his review; “Cote is what eating out should be about. Superb, affordable food that makes you want to come back” – they have restaurants all over UK.
There was a lot more atmosphere there, than in many restaurants I visit in Paris, just 4 min walk from my hotel on Church Str.
And I got lovely next table neighbors, a young couple that is getting married in Malta in 3 months time.
So after dinner, I went back to the hotel and picked up Oscar for a nightly walk around the Old Seine and Royal Pavilion. It was nearly midnight when I was out again. The city was very busy at all pubs and nightclubs – full of drunken and screaming youth, on a Monday night!!!!!
The ambulances were coming and going. Funny enough, I didn’t see any police around.
Plenty homeless begging for money. Some things never change, not even in Brighton.
It was a night of new moon and a bit chilly – hard to work a camera with gloves on.
