Classic French food is often characterized by words like rich, hearty, fancy, and complicated. It can be. And as such, I only have it so often. I've found more than one neo-bistro serving lighter (and in my opinion, better) alternatives though. A little over a month ago, for instance, Edna, Milsters, and I dined at Restaurant Miroir.€ lunch menu. In the midst of easy conversation, I enjoyed a popover-like amuse bouche , red wine, crusty bread, white fish over celery root purée with yellow beans, and un petit café with chocolate mousse, a brownie bite, and an almond cookie. It was delicious, and such a steal.
my Valentine came over to pick me up for our romantic evening (with flowers, by the way), I was ready to go... but knew I shouldn't. We ended up staying in with dim sum and a movie. I fell asleep early, and didn't eat a thing. Today, I skipped classes and hardly feel 100%. I really need to get better soon! We leave for Rome tonight.
