pommes frites pour deux

July 23, 2009

Oui oui, mes amis – this evening I dined at Barbette, this adorable French cafe close to my work that serves french fries with lemon herb aioli that will scramble your brain they are so delicious.

I met up with a friend who recently got back from a trip home. We caught up over wine and le frites. Tres, tres bon. Sorry, I’ll stop pretending to be French now. Ahem…


This plate of fries is bigger than my head. Yes, we did finish them.

How cute are their tables?! I love it. I had a glass of bubbly (that’s right, french fries and champagne, baby!) and a glass of rose before we peaced out.

What’s your adult beverage of choice?
Mine completely depends on the time of year/occasion but I love Malbec wine, English cider and a good mojito or margarita.

Those pommes frites look tres, tres yum. I love to pretend I speak French, but I only know a handful of words and phrases. It doesn't get me too far.

Drink of choice? That's a toughie. Champagne is always a winner, but I sure like mojitos. And gin and tonics. And…

French fries are, hands down, my fav food. Ugh, those look so good. Pomme frites. *le sigh*

My favorite beverage is a hoppy as shit IPA. The hoppier the better.

Given the Frenchiness o this post, I have to ask if you've tried Lillet? It's my absolute favorite thing to drink right now. White Lillet with a slice of orange and an ice cube.

I am so loving parfaits right now… I had to get a new glass because I could never fit everything in that I wanted. Always stuffed after, lol.

Pomme frites = amazing. Those look great!

Favourite alcohol- English cider and blackcurrant! I was so confused when I moved back to the US and saw cider on the menu at Starbucks…

Oh my word…a French cafe?? TOO CUTE! I love good, French food. How fun!! :D

My adult bevarage of choice is a dark ale. But it depends what I'm eating, I guess, since a glass of white wine is up there too. :)

Oh my darling, that parfait is looking gorgeous!!

I like the Peach Chobs because it's not TOO fruity – the other ones can be kind of overwhelming.

Fav. beverage – Mojitos, white wine, or Blue Moons :)

I haven't had french fries in forever and those sound just divine! Chobani is AWESOME!!! I go back and forth between which flavor is my favorite- I really like the honey and blueberry. Love your K inspired breakfast- that girl cracks me up! Have a fabulous weekend

My favorite chobani is the pineapple :) So refreshing!
