|A tree in bloom at Bofinger|
Many of the restaurants in Paris have a strong Alsace influence. Apparently when Germany invaded the Alsace-Lorraine area, those, who could, fled to Paris. They brought their traditions of Brasseries (brew pubs) and sauerkraut with them. My son, Nicholas, had a very traditional Alsace dish.
Dessert was a gazpacho of strawberries with a dollop of creme fraise - yumm. Everything was wonderful. Ironically it was May 1. When we left the restaurant, we were plunged into a workers' march on the street outside, where everyone was demonstrating against everything Bofinger represented, sigh!!
Spoil yourself today!!
