Oh Paul, Paul, Paul!

Had lunch in Paul's in the Avenues today and 'some' of the food quality has returned to its former greatness. The pastries are sublime (have tried them on many occassions :O). I know they fell off the list of places-to-visit list for a long time not sure what happened, they were amazing when they first opened and then dropped to so-so and even descended to downright inedible for a while but they are vying for a comeback. The petit pain au chocolate pastry is just so incredibly yummy!
They do have pretty awful service though which is a shame because that can put me right off eating there, may still have to pop by for a take-away pain au choc.
The service today was slow, uninterested and annoying. And please ask your customers what tea they would like, only as a tea drinking Brit I'm used to ordering tea and getting a decent black tea not a fruity one (has happened on a few occassions). Even when I order, specifically, English breakfast tea it's so weak that it's not drinkable, doesn't seem to matter how long I leave the t-bag in. Seems the French are not so into black tea. Which is a shame because we, and the Kuwaitis, most definately are.
PS.. My crab and salmon salad was way over dressed today but the asparagus soup was delicious.
