Sens Unique in the 18th is a place I more or less stumbled on last month and found quite respectable for our region of the universe.  Today I returned with Colette and our downstairs' male neighbor, the weaker sex of the couple being off to do museums and salad.  The Marilyn Monroe movie opens here this week but the decor and clientele were here long before.

My friend Paga had a molded mound of chopped mango and gambas that was quite as good as my 12 oysters, 4 each of three kinds.

Colette then had lovely-produced and perfectly-cooked and citrus-covered scallops with an almost-millefeuille of sliced potato and bacon while my neighbor and I each had the 400-500 grams of luscious sole with a creamy butter sauce and (for me) rather decent mashed potatoes.

For dessert Colette had the dream of her life - a moelleux of caramel - with a small wedge of baked apple, quite nice if I do say so myself.

Our bill, with forgetable haddock rillettes and OK bread, no bottled water and two bottles and a glass of wine as well as two Calvas (offered) was 190 E, thus 126.66 E a couple.

It turns out that Colette has a culinary double - Shop non stop nifty eh?
