It’s been awhile, I realize, and for however many of you actually reading this, my humblest apologies. Between the extreme heat that didn’t dissipate at the beginning of the month and the relentless news cycle, I haven’t had much time to write.
I haven’t even had that much time for fun food—until recently.
To get back in the game, let’s keep things simple on this Monday afternoon: this post is only about fries and…rosé. (Sorry, no bubbles this time.) While finishing up some stories at the office over the weekend, I popped down to Beaubourg, the waterfront restaurant at Le District (a French-themed food hall), on Saturday afternoon. I wasn’t terribly hungry, but I wanted something…so you know what that means: FRIES.
I’m happy to report that the fries at Beaubourg are just what you need in such a situation. And while yes, if you’re ordering other items off the brunch or dinner menus, then you can share. But honestly, I wanted the whole cone for myself. (But of course, I did share with the two people with me as well as a few crispy bits for the pup.)
We paired that with a bottle of the La Croix de Prieur, Grenache-Cinsault, Côtes De Provence 2016 (not pictured). I had a photo of this bottle, and it’s one of the few times I’ve not synced with iCloud before deleting the image from my phone, so you get (actually much better image) of the second bottle we had at the seasonal Tartinery patio nearby, sufficiently named, “Le Rosé.”
