La Petite Triomphe

Under very few circumstances would it ever seem appropriate to spend nearly $20 on a glass of Champagne or $7 on a cornet of very mediocre fries, but yesterday's quasi-success at the French consulate necessitated some irrational celebratory gesture, and so frites et bubbly it was.

Cafe de la Presse is just a one-minute walk from the French consulate, and if you keep your eyes pointed toward the cafe's tables and chairs, you might think for a minute that you're actually in Paris. We find out in a week's time whether or not we'll be getting an authentic experience, complete with better fries and cheaper wine. Some vegan aioli would be nice, too.

  1. I always wondered about Café de la Presse. It seemed very French (in addition to the obviously French name!) – something about the atmosphere there. I didn't know the French consulate was right there. Looking forward to the update next week!
