I’ll tell you a little secret… the last time we were in France, we spent 2 weeks in Paris, Provence and Côte d’Azure and never had a French meal! Not kidding! So this time, I made sure that we had French cuisine for every meal.
We checked into the hotel and the concierge recommended Chez André, a French bistro, which was near the hotel and was opened on a national holiday.
escargots… for some reason, I still think Jimmy’s Kitchen have the best escargots.. this wasn’t garlic-y enough
Wednesday special: whole sea bass stuffed with crushed tomatoes and provençal vegetables… Unlike the sea bass entreés we have in North America, this dish came with a WHOLE sea bass and then they debone it for you… The sea bass was kind of bland so by pairing it with the provençal vegetables, it became a lot tastier….
Pretty good food… slightly expensive at 80 Euros for lunch.. but then again, it’s in the Champs Élysées!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
