We were a work group of 6. Arrived early to get nice table.

Starter was ok but then they forgot about us for main course. I the end we were 2 hours in restaurant which is too long for simple work lunch these days.

Food quality was great and well cooked. No wine. Euro32/person

The posh western Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine [Neuilly-Plaisance is east of Paris, on the Marne] is to Paris what Bethesda is to Washington; the place where the rich and famous prefer to perch. Among the many restaurants in Neuilly is Le Bistrot du Parc, a real French “brasserie,” The food critic of the daily "Le Figaro" described it as a “petit restaurant convivial et tranquille.”

I had lunch with a friend. The welcome was friendly and we were offered our choice of several small tables for two. Although many of the tables are close together, we could barely hear the conversation of the customers seated next to us.

Among the day’s specials I picked the “Pavé de thon au jus de thym aux épinards frais.” That was a generously cut tuna steak, cooked in a thyme sauce accompanied by fresh spinach. When the waiter asked how I wanted it cooked, I replied by asking what the chef recommended. “Rose,” was the answer, and rose it was. Everything was very tasty indeed.

I saw both a white Quincy and a Rosé de Provence by Maime on the wine list and asked the waiter which he recommended. He suggested the Quncy. It’s one of the lesser-known wines from the Loire Valley, made with Sauvignon grapes that impart a crisp, mineral taste that the French call “pierre a feu,” or flintstone. Quncy is similar in taste to the more well-known Sancerre, but Quincy is always cheaper.

For dessert I had “Pain peudu brioché au caramel beurre salé.” Pain perdu is the way the French say “French toast,” except in this case, it was made from a fluffy portion of brioche instead of a more prosaic slice of bread. The caramel sauce was made with salted butter. The dessert was served hot and it was excellent.

As the restaurant filled up, the service slowed down. Another quibble: I ordered a small bottle of Perrier water, but it was served with a tumbler that already had ice cubes and a slice of lemon in it—the way the airline flight attendants serve bottled water! But the whole point of ordering mineral water is to drink pure water that isn’t contaminated by ice cubes made with chlorinated city water.

If you’re in Neuilly-sur-Seine [not Neuilly-Plaisance] or want to invite some friends who live there to lunch or dinner, Le Bistrot du Parc would be a fine choice.
