I definitely have to try this restaurant, it looks charming. And after eating at Bouchon last week and not being impressed, I'd like to try some hopefully more authentic French cuisine.
This looks absolutely delightful! We celebrated with 3 French cheeses, escargot and sparkling wine at home. And I wore one of my grandmother's silk scarves to coffee outside.
A good local bistro is essential! We had sushi in the garden, though, as we were working late. next year!
lovely photos - thanks for posting!
That looks lovely! The fê:te nationale went almost unobserved here, unless you consider that I had a pedi, and chose a colour from OPI's French Collection. . .
You had a sufficiently festive celebration to cover my lack of one here in Paris. I listened to strains of rock-n-roll in franglaise wafting through my windows from the bal at the Mairie on the 13th. And last light when it sounded like my neighborhood was being shelled, I looked out the window toward the west to see glimpses of the fireworks. Sending gros bisous to you and Monsieur Pseu. Karen
this is all very very attractive.
I love Saint Amour. Each time I am in LA for business, I always stay at the Culver Hotel because I like the neighborhood around it. And Saint Amour is just down the street.
Bit late for this year, but here is a lovely, simple "Bastille Day with a clafoutis de ratatouille" from La Tartine gourmande: http://www.latartinegourmande.com/2010/07/14/clafoutis-de-ratatouille-bastille-day-boston-globe/She deliberately uses the expression common in English, though in French one usually says simply "le 14 juillet"
Ooh, that looks delicious, thanks lagatta!
Béa's "La Tartine gourmande" blog is adorable! She is a French cook, food stylist and photographer living in the Boston area with her Irish-American husband and lovely little daughter - but no, they aren't channelling your mid-century Kennedy/Bouvier clan. She has many simple but lovely recipes featuring fresh, healthful ingredients. Given how small her daughter is, doubt she makes "50+" though I suspect she is around 40: http://www.latartinegourmande.com/about-bea/
That's run by the same couple who used to have the little bistro downtown off Broadway, right? I'll have to try the new(er) one, since it's so close.Loved the downtown bistro.
Just recalled the name of the other bistro - Angelique Cafe. (downtown LA)
