Brasserie de l’ile Saint Louis

This is my favorite place in Paris. It’s not fancy, there aren’t very many items on the menu, and it’s in a pretty touristy area. The thing I like about Paris though, is that I’m a total tourist. I can’t speak the language, I barely know my way around, just being there feels like an adventure so I don’t feel the need to seek out super hole in the wall places. I’ve had many meals here. With my family, by myself and now with Mr. Mockingbird. The waiters never seem to change nor does the menu. The food is Alsatian, which is the perfect combination of French and German,. One of my favorite things is that my dinner (above) looks just like the image on the poster (below). The fries here are spectacular, I’m pretty sure the French have a different kind of potato than we do. Mr. Mockingbird got Steak Tartare which was great and rich and seemed like a pound of meat!
