Tuesday: coffee and French food

After our big day on Monday, we decided to let the kids sleep in, have a slow morning, and enjoy another area of Munich that I had discovered and wanted to show EA.

We played at the playground, drank coffee, and then dropped EA off at the museum for the afternoon while the kids and I returned home to nap and rest.

In the evening, EA and I treated ourselves to a lovely French dinner at Colette, a French brasserie-style restaurant by Michelin-star chef Tim Raue. I learned about him from my dedicated watching of The Chef’s Table, a documentary series on Netflix about different chefs around the world. His main restaurant is an Asian restaurant in Berlin, but he has a few of these French restaurants open now in Germany and I was eager to try it. It did not disappoint, and we went all out. One of my favorite moments was when they brought an entire, large jar of pickles to the table after we ordered, and our night ended outside on the terrace with the perfect tarte tatin: perfect because the taste was just that, and perfect because it reminds me of Christmases when my mom made ones for dessert.
