« Paris walks 1: 17th, 8th, 1st | Main | Richard Lenoir Market »

Pause Cafe


As we walked down the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine on Saturday night, Anne-Solene commented that she had chosen the place because she remembered me asking for typical French food when I had last come to visit. Walking in, Benjamin smiled and said that it was rather like Berlin. It was indeed a bit of both, though I say so with the full knowledge of risking a hopeless provinciality with this inexorable mapping of everything onto my known coordinates. What I mean to say is that we quickly felt at home, settling down with our Belgian beers (whose ubiquity is such a delight for otherwise German-bound me!) and then our goat cheese pastries and brandade de morue.
