When Tom Durst Asks!

My friend Tom asked me to pay some attention to French food. Believe me, my traveling companion did not allow me to bypass the delights of wine, bread, or cheese. Bruce and I had a good time eating local. That means we selected eateries close to our Paris hotel. Selecting this way made it possible for us to walk to the restaurant and safely return after having a wonderful bottle of wine. Here’s the interior of Au Vieux Comptoir, an adorable little place only five minutes from our hotel. The menu was in French and English which is, indeed, a blessing. We found the French are usually very patient when it comes to helping English speakers make food choices, but having a menu in English is a real plus.

This restaurant is very small, but check out the number of bottles of wine. Quite impressive for such a small establishment.

Here’s my traveling companion attempting to make some hard choices.

And here is what I chose for starters. When in France, I did not want to miss an opportunity to eat pate. Everyplace has its own version of it.

And…they give you homemade pickles to enjoy alongside. Very Tasty!

Next up….boeuf bourguignon! It was divine…hot, flavorful, tender, and lots of it.

Eating around our neighborhood was the way to go. This little place is called L’Auberge CafĂ©.

We are both wishing that we were sitting down to some of this fantastic food right now. How ya gonna keep ’em eating in Virginia now that they’ve tasted Paris??? Love, The Unseasoned Traveler.
