Moules Monday


Moules on the menu:

Lunch in Paris is a pleasurable and often spontaneous experience when café terraces packed with happy diners lure: it’s just a question of finding a table and making your presence known. It's a welcome daily respite that means sitting down to enjoy - no rushing, no seatings with time limits and rarely are reservations necessary, unless one's heart is set on finding a place out of the sun or *that table* in a private corner. The daily formule consists of a starter, main dish and dessert, or combo of just two (entrée + plat or plat + dessert) and is great value: look for it on the ardoise chalkboard or last page of the menu. All over France lunchtime starts around 12:30 with last orders taken between 2 and 3 p.m. when most kitchens close, but sometimes, lingering is encouraged. Waiters don't usually dote or hover, considered intrusive, but will quickly come to your aid if but signaled by holding up a forefinger. - BPJ
