Chez Plumeau

Memorable Meals II

Picture this -

A warm, sunny spring day in Paris.

Lunch outdoors at a restaurant just off the Place du Tertre in Montmartre within blocks of Sacre Coeur.

A musician playing contrabass in the courtyard just outside.

My bride of 30 years sitting beside me.

Lunch was Brie Pané (breaded Brie) with a salad of mixed greens, served with slices of fresh baguette.  The salad was dressed with a light vinaigrette that complemented the flavors of the cheese and the greens without trying to take center stage.  To accompany, a glass of white burgundy wine, suggested by the waitress.  A perfect match to the meal.

Have you ever experienced a moment where your entire world is perfectly balanced?  Where elegance, simplicity and joy are in such equal measure that it brings tears?  This was just such a moment.  Wouldn't you know for a dyed-in-the-wool foodie like me that there had to be a great meal involved.

The restaurant was:

Chez Plumeau
4 Place Du Calvaire
75018 Paris, France

The musician was Jean-Pierre Lignian.

The moment was ... Perfect!


I heard Jean-Pierre Lignian play many moons ago. I have his CD and would like to have another one. Please could you give m his address.

We had a late lunch/early dinner at Chez Plumeau after visiting Sacre Coeur. It was amazing. Our only regret was not taking more photo's of the food and restaurant.

Yeah. So much perfection. You described it very well. Made me ponder when was the last time I experienced perfection.
