Lunch at a Basque resto with the gals!






Our serveur was very sweet.. and we joked around with him a lot... It was a lot of fun... I gave some lavander to Mami who was some super cute and adorable customer who was there the same time we were... We took our picture with her...

I can't believe that little old lady is real - I thought she was one of those statues you see in front of restaurants!!

Where is this restaurant?
You say it's basque (and I see "Biarritz" on one picture) but the guy's beret has "Aveyron" written on it, so I assume it's a "pan South West" restaurant, i.e. I'm interested (not that I'm not interest in a Basque only restaurant, I am, but Basque is not home, South West is. ;-) )

On totally unrelated news, I just learned that the French Championship Final of Football will be played this Saturday at the Charletty Stadium at 6PM. Entrance is free...
Unfortunately I might not be able to go (mostly because Y. is not interest and as I won't give her a choice for the Gator and NFL games this Fall, I let her decide for this one), but I assume you are interested... :-)

Hey Tig,

My friend, Dawn (the blonde), would be sooooo happy to hear that... I'll tell her.. She is more Parisienne than une vraie parisienne!!!

Sam- I know.. .Cute little old mamie!!

David - It's in the Marais... right en face du metro St. Paul... You have probably passed by it millions of times.. We thought it was Spanish because they serve tapas, but my friend, Anais.. said it was basque... The salad there was really good!

Thanks for the info about the French football match.. You meant "football américain," right??

David said...

OK, I think I see what restaurant this is...

FYI tapas are both Basque and Spanish as the Basque country is mostly in Spain. ;-)

And yeah, I meant American Football, of course... What else? ;-)

What's up with the new nickname? Are you changing your blog? (because I assume you're Leesa, aren't you?)

Leesa said...

David, Yes.. It's me, Leesa!! : )

I have a bus. card I can check for the name, if you want... I had NO idea that "tapas" were basque.. Learn something new everyday!!
Hey... I am basque!!!! Well, my anscestry, that is...
New nickname... A project in progress for the summer...
Thanks for the football heads-up.. I'll let Alex know..
Take care, Leese

Well, tapas are not originally from the Basque country (at least to my knowledge), but tapas it's just a way to eat food, not a dish or a food in itself... Pretty much the Spanish equivalent to the French apéritif.

But what I meant, is that since tapas are Spanish and the Basque country is mostly in Spain, Tapas can be Basque too. :-)

Oki...
I have tried a variety of delicious tapas at Cafe' Sevilla in San Diego.. My perso. fav. tarta espanola! YUMMM! I have made it before and it's very good... I also like the garlic/mayo sauce- alioi. I understand you mean, now.. I was thinking that you meant that tapas are a part of the Basque "cuisine" just as bakalava is part of the Turkish, Arab, Armenian, etc... cuisine... Just as regions that are close in proximity have similar dishes, n'est-ce pas?
