Seems to be a bug on WordPress and some of the photos are displaying sideways…hope to debug soon 🙂
In previous episodes we postulated that the national religion of France is not Catholicism, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. but rather Foodism, that French people detect the presence of the Divine through their senses, and the French Table is often an altar (see April 9 and March 5, 2016 on Hugo Desnoyer). Enjoying a beautiful meal made with reverence for the ingredients honors life and connects us to the holy earth. Here is one of my favorite places to celebrate food: Chez Philou, 12 avenue Richerand, 75010, +33 1 42 38 00 13 http://www.restophilou.com
Quality/price ratio for the lunch menu is unbeatable, meanwhile, some images:
Owner-chef Philippe Damas recites menu poetry to transfixed diners.
Chandliers with letters and art from fans.
Les enfants du paradis poster for Fifi’s cinema friends…
Wild pheasant one October…Recent déjeuner: filet of pollock fish with succulent baby turnips, carrots, spinach and potatoes….
And all mere steps from the romantic Canal Saint Martin and famous Hôtel du Nord bridge…
