I’m always slightly offended when someone suggests we got to a restaurant I’ve never heard of.
How is it that Bun Boy has not heard of any restaurant?
Quite impossible sounding, right??
Especially a restaurant sandwiched between several others I have already been to.
Meet in Paris is a quaint French bistro in the heart of downtown Culver City. Apparently, self-parking has become a thing of the past and one must valet on a friday night.
I hate valet. Besides being embarrased by my filthy automobile and my intense pride (I will find a parking spot even if I have to miss dinner, dammit!)…
…I’m just a cheap bastard.
Anyhoo, what Meet in Paris is known for is their 16 KINDS OF MUSSELS.
I didn’t hear much talking once the entrees arrived so I’m assuming they were tasty. I don’t eat shellfish as many of you may know but I’ll take everyone’s slurp, I mean word for it.
The Tomato Tarte Tartin was excellent. The pear added a nice sweetness, balancing out the tartness of the tomatoes and the abundance of blue cheese topped everything off nicely.
The Steak au Poivre seemed a bit overcooked but the frites were perfection.
My Burger Provence had a lot of ingredients but I love a saucy burger and this one did not disappoint. I resigned myself to the fact that I was going to have to eat this with a knife and fork, which I’ve learned to be fine with.
The prices are a bit higher than elsewhere on Culver Blvd but, in general, cheaper than most French restaurants.
Please note your table will be adorned with old fashioned, tall, white candles which will disappear before your eyes.
Eventually, the melted wax will become irresistible and you will have to play with it and have it drip on your fingers even though it keeps hurting (ouch!…ouch!…that stuff never cools down, does it?!)
