Seafood Assortment - Before & After

The review I found for this restaurant in Cannes, where I am working for the next 2 weeks, said it had “Clams, praires, palourdes.” The Google translation for that was “clams, clams, clams.” I figured I had to try a restaurant with 3 different words for clams. Looking around, everyone was eating the seafood assortment so I ordered it as well. The assortment had no description, but what arrived was a platter of large snails, raw oysters, raw clams, langostinos, prawns and small snails. I was tentative at first, but the meal was delicious. I especially liked the large snails. I got up to my elbows in the seafood while capoeiristas performed out front. I resisted the urge to jump in the roda with them and enjoyed a fine French meal.

    That first time we were in Paris, eating in Montmartre, some people ordered an assortment of sea food–including shrimps with their heads on–which came atop crushed ice on a plain zinc tray. I think it may’ve been called fleur de mer or something like that. I think it was expensive. Which was immaterial since I’d already ordered my coquille St Jacques and was quite happy with them.
