Not far from the shopping area near the Opéra is a great little bistro called the Bon Georges, which reopens today after their holiday hiatus:) They have a great lunch menu for 19 Euros ($21 USD), but the daily specials tempted @ALadyInFrance and me too much to resist.

I chose the fish, a delicate merlan, or whiting, perfectly done with a crispy skin, braised endives, and a tomato relish.

She chose the tarragon chicken breast special, but it was so dry, even the sauces couldn’t save it.

The fries accompanying her dish were fantastic, crisp, obviously home made, and she was generous enough to share 🙂

Jennie opted for a dessert to end the meal on a sweet note:)

The total with a glass of wine was 70 Euros ($80) for both of us, and service was so friendly and pleasant that we left a bit more for the waitress who not only hung our coats, but got an extra chair for our handbags!
