When we were in Paris, we went to a cafe in the Louvre Museum called Paul. I had one of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten! The bread was the best (poppy seed long roll with chicken, tomato, lettuce, and some type of mustard that tasted like it had a bit of horseradish in it). When we found out that DC had a Paul restaurant, we were excited to try it out. The restaurant atmosphere was charming, the people working there were very nice, they had regular chairs and comfy chairs with tables, but.....I got the same sandwich but it didn't taste the same. The bread had so many poppy seeds on it (almost the entire bottom of the bread was covered) and yet I couldn't really taste it. The bread itself was very hard. It was "a chore" to chew and swallow it! My husband had a different sandwich. The bread wasn't hard but it wasn't delicious either. He also had an espresso. He said it wasn't as good as Starbucks. I knew it wouldn't be quite the same in DC, but I was disappointed. The desserts were pretty good. The prices weren't bad for DC. I really went there hoping for some outstanding bread. I was disappointed.
