La Fontaine de Mars

We enjoyed a tasty meal last night (Sunday) at La Fontaine de Mars,  in the shadow of the Tour Eiffel (well, more like moon shadow last night). Ten years ago we stayed in this area, and passed La Fontaine de Mars a number of times, but never dined here. Last night we made up for that prior omission. We were seated on the second floor, which was a smaller dining area than the cafe like first floor. The room was nice, and the service was good, although we were seated near too many Americans, especially the too loud lady next to us. This is the most Americans we have seen in one place, and we figured we were seated upstairs as the waiter spoke English. Regardless, we had a nice meal, Frank started with Escargot, and I with a Smoked Salmon salad - both very good. We both ordered the Confit de Canard (duck) for our main course - yummy. For dessert, Frank ordered Prunes with Armagnac, and I had Pineapples with Sabayon.
After dinner we walked a few blocks for another night view of the Eiffel Tower; it is one of the most memorable sites in Paris.
