In May I was taken out to dinner at La Granouille and to see a play "An American in Paris" in New York City. As I walked up to La Granouille at 3 East 52nd Street and thought how could this be? It is not a grand outside facade. As I walked in and met my date I thought I had stepped into a magical fairytale. The pink flowers and tree branches felt as if I just walked into a beautiful painting. We were seated side by side and I did not ever take my eyes off of the amazing flower display. The menu had so many fabulous choices of French Food which made the final decision difficult to make. (you will see our choices were the exact same and neither would change so we could share) Everything was delicious and the presentation and service were impeccable. We ate every last speck of food and crumb on the plate! Merci La Granouille

Then off to see Gigi, Staring Vanessa Hudgens at the Neil Simon Theatre. It was fun and lighthearted. Vanessa of course sang beautifully. It was lovely to watch her on set. This was a perfect ending to a fabulous "French" birthday .....
