Food For Thoughts: au Petit Marquis


Another participation in Rob and Mandy's Food for Thoughts! This was lunch at le Petit Marquis restaurant, pretty good value for money. The building began its life in 1667 as a public writer's place, a wine dealer took over in 1686. Smoked hake, hake with ratatouille 'à la niçoise', three veg terrine, fried squid, Camembert cheese, lemon tart and a glass of red Brouilly!

Encore une participation au Food for Thoughts de Rob et Mandy ! Déjeuner au Petit Marquis. L'immeuble a commencé sa vie comme écritoire en 1667 puis devint négoce en vins en 1686. Lieu fumé, terrine aux trois légumes, colin à la niçoise, calamars frits, Camembert, tarte au citron et un verre de Brouilly ! Délicieux et très, très raisonnable.

Tres joli collage avec les differents plats, c'est tres appetissant...
J'aime bien ton cadrage sur les jambettes en mouvement plus bas.

Jack said...

Oh, Lord, don't do this to me! The pastries look amazing, as does the restaurant. Beautiful.

Becky said...

I'll take the cheese and the lemon tart, thank you. You can keep your fried squid. Lol!

This is one thing I LOVE about Europe - the old buildings turned into beautiful modern places, but with the ambiance of classy eras gone by. Lovely.

Woody said...

Sounds yummy, but what to drink? A glass (or two) of fine French champagne I hope!

Magpie said...

Lemon tart! Sign me up.

Bob Crowe said...

Sure, I'll have some. We expect a change for the better in food standards when we come visit. You won't find a combination like this here at good value or bad.

Randy said...

You had me at the cheese and lemon tart! It all looks good. I think I gained a few pounds just by looking at it.

Olivier said...

le menu a 13 euros est tres sympathique et puis il semble y avoir une bonne ambiance, mais moi a cette heure c'est plustot cafe ;))

Interesting! I just had quick fried calamari made with ginger and soy at the Elephant Bar..so tender, and delicate. The atmosphere looks nothing like the Petite Marquis restaurant which is so elegant! Lovely bottles pictured with the menu...Merci!

I had just determined that I was done with dinner and would not do dessert...until I saw your pictures! :)

Dave said...

Mmmm...delicious! And what a terrific bit of history...1600s (pour americains) is ancient!

Il y a l'air d'avoir de bien bonnes adresses dans ton coin!

Regarding you comment about the fog: I like Wanderer above a Sea of Fog. Similar but more trees here. That could be me only standing on my deck. Maybey my hair could be flowing in the wind---no I cut it all off. Don't ask why!
I am glad you know all these things so you can educate me. MB

Gunn said...

Alain Alexandre said...

Le cadre très important pour apprécier des bon plats; tu as raison le bonheur est dans l'assiette; les photo sont d'une composition de gourmet.

Francisca said...

One only glass? :-D

Luzia said...

Oh nein, jetzt läuft mir aber das Wasser im Munde zusammen:o! Es sieht so delikat aus, dass ich sofort in diesem Restaurant Platz nehmen möchte:-)) Einen herrlichen Sonntag wünscht Dir Luzia.
