    Where in the world is it better to eat than in Paris, France? Will you be there this year for Bastille Day, Sunday July 14th? Our superhero TasteeBQ went there on a Secret Mission last year, and has survived to share The Dish. Whether you are going or not, enjoy this photo tour of Foods and Sights of Paris. Try cooking our spin on Steak and Pommes Frites. Then, there's that Horse video and Bonus Fireworks near the end.

    Do Some Sight Seeing

    Fireman's Ceremony on Plaza across from Eiffel Tower, two days before big parade.

    Paris city view from the Arc.

    Brunch, Lunch or Picnic

    Find Nomad's on Facebook.

    Can you handle it? 1/2 Pound Burger from Le Cafe Livre.

    Pilon De Poulet is the French Version of "Hot Wings". Get them at Stohrer (Patissier/ Traiteur) a great place for picnic and take out food. Enjoy the decor by designers of the Paris Opera House.

    Another great picnic find is Au Sanglier Sarl Geoffroy- Vorre Charcutier, Traiteur. They serve great Charcuterie. Their Croque Monsieur is fantastic.

    An American BBQ in Paris

    Blues Bar-B-Q is said to be the first ever American style BBQ eatery in France. At least the restaurant says so. Their menu of Yankee comfort foods is sure to please visitors with a true taste of home.

    Blues Bar-B-Q's poster is quite bilingual.

    We Love a Parade!

    Not about food, but had to show this. Imagine TasteeBQ being awakened on Bastille Day at 6am by the sound of stampeding horses. Runs to the balcony, grabs a camera and sees this...

    Horse Busts Move. Happy 2013. Actual video was shot in 2112. Still not sure if was Choreographed or a Fail.

    After Bastille Day parade, soldiers came to meet and greet visitors.

    It started to rain so umbrellas came out.

    Now Here's the Beef-

    Starting with Winner for "Farthest from the Grill": Beouf Tar Tar from Les Marronniers. Also wins for "Most Flavorful Raw Dish."

    Steak from Les Marronniers. Roasted Potatoes are promenient because they were Amazing.

    Perfect rare Steak from the other Moulin in the Marais.

    The undisputed overall Champ, the national dish of France- Steak with Foie Gras. Piece de Boeuf -Black Angus- au foie gras de canard au gros sel- Rock salt Roasted New York Steak & Duck foie gras from La Petite Cour.

    Can you believe they even have a specialty store- Foie Gras Luxe. It has a hidden back alley location in the Belly District.

    Just Dessert

    Banane Flambee au Rhum at Restaurant La Cordonnerie. It's France's version of Bananas... Actually, guess they invented it.

    Easy Recipe: Grilled Steak with Pommes Grilles

    Bring home these flavors from France. Instead of Deep Frying them 2 times, you can make delicious Potato Fries right on the Grill. This is a great recipe for Bastille Day or any day of the year.

    Grilled Ribeye with Butter, Rosemary and Garlic, Veggies and Grilled Potato Fries

    1. Prepare 8-10 oz. of Ribeye or New York Strip per person. Slice large Red Potatoes and White Onions into 1" slices. Cut Red, Yellow and/or Green Bell Peppers in half, removing seeds. Provide a few Grape or Cherry Tomatoes for each person.

    2. Marinate Steak and Vegetables (separately) for at least 1/2 hour with Olive Oil and generous amount of Spice Rub (like POWER by California Gold BBQ Rubs)- or use Garlic, Tumeric, Paprika, Thyme, Salt and Pepper. Rub Steak with fresh chopped Garlic. Mix chopped fresh Rosemary into marinades.

    3. Grill Slices of Potatoes and Veggies on lower heat. Note- Potatoes will take longer to cook (30-40 mins.) so start them early. They are done when soft in middle and crispy outside. Cut into 1/2 inch Fries. Slice Onions and Peppers into strips, and mix together. Keep warm.

    4. Grill Steaks to desired doneness. Add Tomatoes to Grill for last 3 minutes of cooking.

    5. Mix 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Butter with Thyme and Chopped Garlic. Melt into Veggies, over Fries and put dollup on each Steak. Serve and Enjoy.
