Bistro Incroyablement Bon!

Wow, another great Paris layover with some excellent bistro fare. Le Baribal near Metro Pasteur was a hit with all four of us. I got the suggestion from another traveling francophile recently who raved about the Escalope de Veau au Roquefort. She was more than right. The rich and slight crustly Roquefort cream sauce smothered the succulent veal escalope accompanied by thin green beans and pommes de terre. All washed down with red table wine, we were all soaking up the extra sauce with the crusty french baguette slices. I was so glad to be able to share this wonderful meal with 3 others since I'll start to fly to Rome again starting next month...Cabonara here I come. Stay tuned!
Je vous embrasse.

  2. Bonjour Gretchen,
    vieni da mammabellarte per il 100th post! Hurry up...rapido

  3. Well I know where I'll be heading on my next trip to Paris this coming spring. Great atmospheric photos to match your tasty write-up. (And "Le Baribal" is in an arrondisement I don't know well; all the more reason to go.)
    Many thanks, Gretchen.
