After our visit to the Musée d'Orsay, Bill and I arrived late to Au Babylone -- at the very end of the lunch time. Their regulars had all eaten and gone. We'd enjoyed a lovely set lunch menu there when we were last in Paris.
But our welcoming waitress said she could offer us two main courses -- a plate of pork and a plate of beef, if that would suit us.
It would suit us just fine, we said, with a half-litre of Côtes du Rhône.
She brought the food and Bill poured the wine.
We were very happy.
Bill's roast beef could be cut with a fork.
My roast pork was tender and tasty. Both with divine mashed potatoes and gravy.
No French meal would be complete without fresh bread and a carafe of water.
And espresso to finish, of course.
We'll be back to Au Babylone.
We walked through the romantic Square Boucicaut to the Sèvres–Babylone Métro station.
