Je T'aime, Paris! The Peninsula Paris Plays a Starring Role on an All-New Episode of ABC's 'Modern Family'



Over the last 11 seasons, the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan has travelled the globe, making hilarious memories wherever they went – from Hawaii, Australia, Wyoming and Disneyland to Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe and New York. 
In one last family trip, the crew heads to Paris, so Jay can accept a lifetime achievement award for his work in the closet industry. While there, Claire has a secret rendezvous with an old flame in one of the most romantic spots, atop The Peninsula Paris in a luxurious Rooftop Garden Suite overlooking the Eiffel Tower and Parisian skyline.   In a pivotal scene, Claire is introduced to the glamour and romance of The Peninsula as her former love interest seeks to win her affections. 

The final scene in the episode sees the family united to celebrate at the Michelin-starred L’Oiseau Blanc, enjoying the marvelous food and unbeatable views of The Peninsula Paris’s celebrated rooftop restaurant.
