@chienfou@gilby722 Near. There’s too many to not stop at one near the Seine, Champs Elysee, the Tuilleries, the Sorbonne, or with some other view of yet more magnificent morning eye candy. And a baguette with some ham & cheese for an afternoon snack.
I’ll uh, hmm, have the Revolutionary Crêpe, with the blood of the bourgeoisie filling. Please have that waitress, pardon, serveuse over there bring it to me, but make sure to tear off her top to expose her tits, and give her a rifle before she does. If you don’t have a rifle, it’s okay, I brought my own, and she can borrow it.
Ah! The planche de fromages to start, I think, then let’s see… I do like Pot au Feu, but the Lapin à la Moutarde looks interesting… Hmmm, what can you tell me about the Côtelette de Porc d’été? Or, hmmm, Ratatouille Tart… No, wait, I’ll have the Lapin aux Pruneaux, and the Mushroom Bourguignon for my friend here - we can share! A glass of Pinot Noir with that, I think…
And for dessert, the Mousse au Chocolat? Although that Daffodil Cake looks good… No, no the Fromage Blanc & Pistachio Cheesecake. What would you recommend, a Riesling with that?
Croque Monseur. Funny story. Years ago I was traveling for work in Paris and then our sales manager (who later became our VP) joined me at an outside café for lunch. I ordered a Croque Monseur and he said he’d have one too, but he thought I said “I’ll have a Coke, Monseur.” So I had to explain it was like a sandwich and not a drink.
Also at that same place, some people at a nearby table had a dog with them sitting on the ground (not uncommon there), and they were commanding their dog in French. The sales guy expressed amazement that dogs could learn French too! I think he figured dogs only knew English…
French restaurant? I’m sorry, I went in the wrong door.
Seriously, French food is close to my least favorite international cuisine. It is slightly more likeable than British food. If I am going for something like that it will be Italian, Cajun, Indian, Mexican, Chinese, etc.
