To celebrate the arrival of Colette and my favorite cousin-visitor to France with his lovely lady (R) on this "maybe-it's-going-to-be-summer-soon-after-all-afternoon," we Montmartrebussed up the hill to Jeanne B. As you'll recall, they have an astonishingly priced 23 E three-course lunch and astonishlngly-priced magnums of wine starting at 41 E. (after breathing a bit, the wine was very good)
So off we went; R ordered a wonderful house terrine (chicken if you beklieve it); cousin and Colette having the glassful of avocado and shrimp which needed some Tobasco or salt or both; and I some bulots with an herb-flavored mayo. A good albeit not overpowered start.
For mains, R had a huge pork short rib, Colette a veggie salad with a few bites of chicken, and the boys milk-fed Spring lamb, all of which were good product, well prepared, albeit sending up no shooting stars.
Unimaginatively, the three of them chose to close ith an apple-rhubarb crumble and I had what sounds unimaginative, but was anything but - a delicious fruit salad. Our bill with 4 coffees and no bottled water, was 71.50 E a couple.
