We used our free RATP passes to get to La Rech, an excellent seafood restaurant by Alain Ducasse in the rue des Ternes. The meal was faultless. We started with amuses gueules then sea urchin on grey mullet carpagio.

|Meringue and hazelnut ice cream with chocolate sauce - vacharin style|
The front is quite unassuming - it being taken up with an oyster bar.
An old school friend, Rob Carter, recommended La Rech. I always remember Rob as the winger on the rugby team - give him the ball and he would thrust out his chin, shut his eyes and run like h-- for the line. Now I can also think of Rob as a culinary expert.
