We enter and they are quick to rush to us speaking in English (how did they know?!) I reply back in French which is mother(actually father!) tongue for me and they look disappointed. It’s noon, there are only 2 tables occupied, not counting the bunch of people hanging at the bar and chatting with staff and owner(?). After a night flight from JFK we are very tired and want a quick soup with a glass of wine before we go back to the hotel and drop dead in bed. When we finally get the waitress’ attention and order two French Onion Soups and two glasses of red house wine she takes her sweet time to come back and tell us that there is not “house wine today”! This does not sound right for a cafe/brasserie type of establishment anywhere in France, forget about Paris.
After some negotiating we end up ordering two small glasses of red, declining her push for larger size. Eventually we get the soups and they are mediocre at best. The wine is not even mediocre, it’s worse. It takes f o r e v e r to get the check and then to get our change. The whole experience sets us back 30 Euro and steals one hour of our time. Pathetic, or as the French would say, lamentable!
