2 Tartines, 2 Tartine Bistro, Monaco and Ohio, A Bistro A Day, March 31

I have not kept up with this new A Bistro A Day feature in past few days.

To make up for it a bit, I decided to serve you 2 Tartines in this edition.

We're not talking bread slices here.

The tartines in question are 2 bistros using the same Tartine Bistro moniker.

First to appear on my radar was Bistrot Tartine in Monaco.

Weather permitting you can choose to eat in the dining room with its warm recycled wood interior or escape to the terrace.


You get a chance to sample Mediterranean cooking of Stéphane Chenneveau with 2 course lunch for 15.80.

Next we pay a visit to Tartine Bistro in Rocky River, Ohio.

The Monday through Wednesday Happy Hour from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM (at Bar only) sounds like worth checking.

Here's a sample of what $10 ($5 per food item, $5 per 2 wines by the glass) gets you:


Wines by the Glass:

Is That a Fish Hanging on Your Back, April Fools Day, Poisson d' Avril

Apr 1
In my school days, if there was one thing you had to watch for on April 1st, it was paper fishes hanging on your back. A harmless joke called Poisson d'Avril. French chocolatier Patrick Roger who can be mischievous turned the tradition into an edible fish, a praline cookie covered with a thin layer of dark chocolate. Give me a dozen of these to munch on. Happy April Fool's Day!
