It’s very busy in the Parisian Restaurant. As a scooter zips by, inside the waiter rushes between the tables as the nervous young man gets ready to propose with the ring! It’s just as hectic behind the scenes, with the chef busily preparing the food. This beautifully detailed building is the setting for so many stories and is a great addition to the modular building series. The Parisian Restaurant has a fully-stocked, blue and white tiled kitchen with tableware as well as a cozy apartment with pull-down bed, kitchenette and fireplace. On the top floor is the artist’s room with a studio that includes a cast iron heater, easel, paintbrush and two works of art by the aspiring artist. Outside, stairs lead down to the roof terrace lined with hanging lanterns and flowers where the diners eat alfresco-style. This amazing Parisian Restaurant model even includes a facade with croissants, clams and feather details that recapture the feel of Paris. Includes 5 minifigures: chef, waiter, girl and a romantic couple.

    Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, they go and redesign what a modular can be. The modular house builds were impressive right out the gate, but as the years go by they keep becoming more and more amazingly detailed in an artistic as well as visual sense. Sets may come and go but these will last forever.

    If there ever was one thing to look forward to each year, it’s these beauties.

      We should give credit to the LEGO designers for putting out awesom looking modular sets. It’s too bad that I couldn’t get into them for some reason.
