A Happy Birthday at La Fontaine de Mars.

"Where should we go for his birthday?", I asked Adrian.
"Go to La Fontaine de Mars. He'll really enjoy that!" she suggested.

"Ah, this is where your president had dinner with his wife last year." he said pleasantly surprised when we arrived by taxi with the driver keeping the birthday destination a secret as I handed him the directions.

Once again, I was the last to know that just last year in June President Obama and first lady, Michelle, also dined at this cozy neighborhood bistro just a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower.

My friend truly enjoyed the surprise dinner.
La Fontaine de Mars which specializes in rustic dishes from France's southwest region was the perfect place to celebrate a birthday.

Our reservations placed us in a cozy corner, where we shared interesting conversation with a few employees on vacation from the U.S. Supreme Court!

The perfect place to celebrate a birthday.

A warm and inviting welcome!

Wonderful Food.

Just before dessert and a surprise.

Ah Dessert!

The surprise birthday candle and ice cream.

Singing Happy French (of course)!

A wonderful evening.

A beautiful after dinner stroll.

Friendly staff, great food, good conversation, laughter, and dessert, makes a happy birthday evening at La Fontaine de Mars, Paris.
