"Un pour tous,...

'All for one, one for all'! A restaurant in Saint-Louis neighbourhood. Athos was one of Alexandre Dumas' Three Musketeers, the other... three... yes, there were four really, being d'Artagnan, Porthos and Aramis. The only character that was based on a real person was d'Artagnan... There are trains on Artsy Versailles today.

... tous pour un" ! Voici un restaurant du quartier Saint Louis. Il y a des trains sur Artsy Versailles aujourd'hui.

Yup, knew there were four musketeers. But not the restaurant. I like the light and color you captured.

J'espere que l'auberge est bonne.
J'aime beaucoup la petite chapelle St Michel plus bas.

Looks like a fun place - esp. with the balloons. I didn't know about the 4 mouseketeers, er...musketeers!

Have you eaten here?

And yes, I like the Lomo effect on occasion. You did it well.

I don't think I've ever read the original novel. The sentiment is noble but their motto sounds so naive today.

Y mange t'on des brochettes de toutes sortes??
Bon dimanche!

I remembered Aramis only because i think it's also a cologne(?) And i never knew there were four musketeers...need to put it on my book list.

I was in Paris when the remains of Alexander Dumas were reburied in the Pantheon. His coffin was draped with purple cloth embroidered in silver with "tous pour un, un pour tous." Very moving.

Now what I need to know is, what do you think of the restaurant?

Ah the Three Musketeers, as a child I loved the film.

I never knew there were four musketeers either. And Slumdog Millionaire only mentioned the three.

Ciel I had to go back and purchase the cowgirl sign...

Birdman said...

Yes, yes... so what's on the menu this AM?

Someone is having a party. Did you go? MB


PS. I believe the black on the rocks is a type of Lichen or mossy stuff. MB

Ok..twist my arm I'll try their plat du jour. Looks like a nice place to spend an evening.

It is the "three" musketeers over here. Or that is what we hear.

Cool photo...

@ Abe: that's the name of the book! Misleading, huh?!

Magpie said...

I have to research what Athos' part was in the whole story because now I'm curious. Always learning. It's a good thing.
PS: I'm doing some exploring to see if I can share something with you about our stay in France. This is fun!

You probably know that names like these were quite popular in Tuscany at the turn of the last century. I have personally known an Athos, an Aramis and a badly spelled Arantagnan. They weren't related...

What an interesting discourse. I vaguely remember the fourth name.

It looks quaint and makes me think the food there is simple but very good. :)
