American Dream Diner

Before Diana Krall on Tuesday night (see earlier post), I recommended we all eat at the American Dream Diner which I had noticed on a previous walking tour of this district. It is located a mere one block from Olympia Hall, where Joe and I were attending the concert, and Linda, Zach and Zoe could visit the Opera House and Galeries Lafayette department store one block in the other direction.

Located at 21, Rue Daunou in the 2nd arrondissement, the restaurant is so over-the-top garish, one gets the sense it is an intentional caricature.

The main floor is the restaurant with a jazz cellar below for the weekend and go-go bar later each night which features a variety of crazy shows.

The booths were small, menu large, prices outrageous and food was adequate.

Probably not going back.
