Le 6 Paul Bert in the 11th is yet another place I reconnoitered in Colette's absence and put on her "must go" list.  Today, 6 of went and despite our varying food tastes, all felt more than satisfied by what they/we ordered; indeed each of felt we had "scored" and while sharing everything, stuck to our beliefs that "we were the Champions."
