A Taste of Paris in Philadelphia
After seeing, Paris, je t’aime, at the Ritz Bourse we naturally wanted to extend the feeling of Paris. We strolled west on Walnut street until we came to the Caribou Cafe. We were able to secure an outdoor table. There was quiet live jazz being played by a muted trumpet and a guitarist. The weather was perfect.
Susan a long time waitperson/bartender and always a gracious server welcomed us and brought menu’s. Susan knows her wine and she supplied for us a delicious red and a buttery white. We had a light snack. Barbara had Crab Mornay on fresh toasted bread and small salad. I, being in a very French mood had the smooth and singular tasting Foie Gras with Jambon. I so enjoy Foie Gras. You really must try it, if you have not already.
The Caribou Cafe has always served wonderful bistro inspired food in a relaxed Parisian atmosphere. Their wine selections are also very interesting and do not cost you an arm and leg. Barbara and I sat, talked about the movie and watched the parade up and down Walnut street. We recommend the movie and the restaurant.
Total for us with our snacks and four glasses of wine $43.50
