A Physicist’s Dinner in Paris

One of the nights at ICHEP, I ended up by myself and wandered around the middle of Paris a bit. At last I was hungry, and decided I wanted something easy and affordable if at all possible. The best solution for this, in Paris, is one of the touristy restaurants. So what I ate is below. Some aspects of it are typically French, but there is nothing unfamiliar to an American about it except the concept of an omelet at dinner.

Dinner in Paris

You can also see what I was reading: a book of papers on the “multiverse hypothesis” adapted from some conference lectures. Among some theoretical physicists trying to build a fundamental theory of life, the universe, and everything, there is serious research and debate on this subject — but to me as an experimentalist, it’s crazy far-out philosophy. But it’s also amusing dinner reading, and the university publishers who had booths set up at ICHEP were the only source of English-language books I knew of in Paris.
