This was my first real restaurant experience in Paris. The previous one in France was at a truckstop somewhere along the autoroute as we were coming from Lucerne and at what could be loosely described as our hotel that morning. I was a rising senior at Lee-Davis High School in 1986 and I had 3 years of French. The maître d'hôtel (head waiter, for those of you in Roxboro), was very impressed by my comparative fluency in French that he served us personally. I ordered for my group in French and I ordered escargots for myself. I also had cream puffs for dessert.
Favorite Dish: I had escargot as the entree and cream puffs for dessert. The service and food were great and the ambience wasn't bad either.
We lucked out here as we dined late for lunch. We were escorted to the first floor and given a window table in a slightly elevated alcove.
Favorite Dish: The food was excellent -- the best we ate this trip and the wine wasn't bad either! I had the "sandre" fish filet resting on a bed of spinach. My husband had the farm chicken. We both had the endive salad.
I took the advice of my friend Nat (B1BOB on VT) and found an excellent French restaurant with a nice ambiance, on the Boulevard des Capucines (Grands Boulevards). The place looks the same today as in the 80's, judging by Nat's picture.
