For the last four years on Halloween I have dressed up as a Renaissance princess (including the blonde wig). This year I decided to change my costume and dress up as something that reminded me of my summer holiday in Paris.
What I wore is the uniform of the servers at an upscale restaurant in Paris called Au Pied de Cochon. As expected, not many people caught the reference – but my family did and they loved the memories the costume invoked.
We ate at the restaurant for lunch on a Sunday. I loved the ambience of the place and knew when we entered that I would enjoy the experience. The servers treated us like kings – even though we were dressed in typical touristy gear.
My meal was delicious – the tastes of butter and cream perfectly blended. The dessert was extravagant and, because we knew the server, we received a few extra pig meringues. 🙂
Halloween this year brought back some memories – and made me think we need to visit this restaurant again.
Did you dress up for Halloween?
