There is a well known restaurant in Paris called Spring and the chef and owner there is an American, Daniel Rose. Right around the corner is a smaller place where you can only get their famous soup, called bouillon, and wine.
A glass of wine in front of some of the saussicon that they have there, along with cheese. They always have four wines available to serve and have wine tastings too.
The bouillon being prepared in the open kitchen. This is a soup that was once served around les Halles, the huge market that was once in the center of Paris. It is a really rich chicken broth with some chicken and vegetables but you seldom get broth this rich or veggies this fresh.
In fact, here is a photo of what the old market at les Halles looked like. Can you imagine being there? I would have loved to have seen it. A friend of mine did.
Here’s the bouillon all prepared. It’s really good. It also had a poached egg in it, not my favorite thing so I let it sit in the hot broth until the end so the yolk wouldn’t be runny. So fresh.
I hardly ever eat bread but when there’s butter, I find it hard to resist-and I didn’t.
A very nice place with very nice people working there. A good place to stop for a light lunch and it’s right in the neighborhood of the Louvre museum.
