huitrerie regis

July 25, 2011








. . . . . . . . .

remembering a long lunch in paris last month at huitrerie regis with friends… 3 dozen fines de claires oysters, crevettes smeared with butter (thanks, molly), and a bottle of white wine. that was a good afternoon.

(a post in honor of my brother mike, whose 30th birthday is today. the guy LOVES his oysters.
mike, i wish we could share some oysters & beers tonight – happy birthday!)

    That plate of oysters is just the epitome of easy, summer glamour. Made me smile (and feel a little posher!) just looking at it.

    Lovely. Especially the photo of the carcasses and wine label! We tried to go to H. Regis when we were in Paris over New Year’s, but it was closed that afternoon. Next time! Anyway, sitting outside in the sun while eating oysters sounds so much better. :)

    Makes me feel transported to far-far away. Thanks for the brief mid-day escape. Beautiful photos.

    Not fair – huitres and crevettes – un bon repas!

    Need to get myself down to Franklins today, if only the weather behaves : )

    Seething with jealousy. All these photos – they could be pulled from Hemingway’s photo book! It’s just like in Dangerous Summer or Farewell to Arms.

    So.
    Envious.
