Missing Paris is a favorite pastime of He Said and me. We often ponder our fabulous journey this past January, talking about our adventures around this most hopelessly romantic of cities. I find He Said comparing experiences here to those we had in Paris and frequently seeking out French food and wine. We have been on a kick post-trip to familiarize or re-familiarize ourselves with the various bistros in town, and French food always calls for French vino!
One of these “research trips” was just steps from our pied à-terre (see how French we are?) to the Bistro at Maison deVille, located on Toulouse about ½ block off of Bourbon Street. Or, to put it another way, you can’t get past the stink before you are at the door to this place. It was at one time affiliated with the Hotel at Maison deVille, became independent, and now appears reaffiliated once again (I think).
